Pretty in Pink
September 8, 2009

I hope everyone had a long and lazy weekend! Today, we have the most fun, mosty girly, most adorable inspiration you could ever want. And although I know that this is a wedding blog through and through, the girl behind the blog (me) is now a mommy who LOVES to throw a great party. So this morning, I thought that I would share my daughter's first birthday party that was inspired totally from details we've done right here on SMP.

Oh and the best news ever? Cookie Magazine's blog Nesting is running a FULL feature on the party right here...complete with TONS of details and behind the scenes dirt!

Let me preface by admitting that I am well aware that this is WAY over the top for a first birthday. We had pony rides, a petting zoo, perfect pink cupcakes that are wedding worthy, paper poms, 3 foot balloons, the works. BUT, I figure we have years and years of sponge bob and princess parties so this one...was all me. Plus, I figured it could inspire a few awesome bridal showers or wedding details so that is how I justified it in my head.

A few of the fabulous vendors that helped me...first and foremost, Studio Foto. I am a little bit in love with Paul and Krystal who have now photographed the family a whopping three times. They are AMAZING and I could gush and gush and gush about their mad skills.

I found the HUGE balloons at the Balloon Place, the cupcakes at Sweet of Boston and the ADORABLE banners that literally MADE the decor perfect at Daisy and Dots on Etsy. Oh and of course,  Pom Love stepped in with some seriously adorable pink poms!

We have lots more to come!! And later, the Hostess Blog is doing a DIY project on some of our favors that would be perfect for any party.
