1st birthday party decor

Thursday, April 11, 2013

I was so pleased with how Blair's first birthday party turned out. And I owe it all to Pinterest! ;) Ok, some ideas were completely mine but many minds are always better than one. A month later here are the party details...

I think party planning for a living would be so fun! Stressful, sure, (I'm remembering when I was sweating putting up that butcher paper as guests were arriving!!!) but such a great way to let out your creative energy. In another life I will be a party planner. And a buyer for Nordstrom. And a celebrity (why not.) ;)


  1. Haha - I have about 20 others jobs in my other life, too! And actually, three of those would be a buyer, party planner, and celebrity!

    Party looks GREAT! :)

  2. How cute! Congrats on Blair's 1st bday! Love all of the decorations. :)

  3. I'm a long time reader and have never commented but have to ask a question! My daughter turns one in a month and I am planning on creating a one out of pictures like the one above. How big was it? Also, were the pictures 4x6? Thanks!

    1. Thanks for reading! The one was about three and a half feet tall and yes I used 4x6 prints. :)

  4. Loving all the fun and girly details!! You did an awesome job!!!

  5. Everything is so sweet!!! I made a lace vase tutorial on pinterest years ago! I wonder if she used my tutorial :) I love the 1 in pictures!!!

  6. nat did you buy your brown butcher paper from the dollar store? I spotted some there and Was tempted to buy it but didn't know if it was very cheap /tore easily.......

    1. no i bought it off of amazon. and the one roll i bought is going to last FOREVER. i guess im wrapping our xmas gifts in butcher paper till i die!


I love reading what you have to say! Leave a comment...it makes my day!
