I am totally jumping the wedding ship for a few hours to share with you my favorite party ever…my daughter’s first birthday! The only reason that I feel like this is totally allowed is that SO many of the details were inspired by past weddings and events we’ve featured here on SMP. So, without further ado, here is the prettiness in full effect!

The “theme” (and I use that word really lightly, because I am not big on themes) was Pretty in Pink! We held the party at my in-law’s house so that we could take full advantage of their gorgeous backyard. I had pink balls of every shape and size, HUGE pink balloons, a tin filled with pink water baloons, pink paper poms in every shade and pink lemonade cocktails for the kids to enjoy.

Inside, we decorated with massive pink balloons, cupcakes that took center stage on the table, a GORGEOUS bunting from Daisy and Dots on Etsy and favors for the kiddos…customized bubble tins and bags of homemade chocolate chip cookies. A little later today, Jenn, over at the Hostess Blog is doing a DIY on the bubble favors and is including a template that you can print out at home.
