I have to confess...I've been planning our girl's first birthday basically since before she was born. I know, I know. But I just can't help myself. There is so much beautiful inspiration out there these days, and who doesn't love a pretty and fun party?! Since she's been born, I've used peach and blush as her "theme" colors (aka my favorite tones to purchase for her wardrobe), and I love using anything and everything Rifle Paper Co. So the theme for her first birthday party was an easy one. It will be a Rifle-inspired party with lots of botanicals, peaches, blushes and some gold (similar to her nursery). I've had so much fun gathering inspiration, so I thought I'd share a few of my favorite images that are driving the direction of our little fete.
This is the collage I've been using to show vendors and others what I'm thinking. So pretty seeing it all together!
I LOVED this shower and the fun floral cupcake toppers. What a beautiful set up!
This mama killed it on her daughter's first birthday - how jaw-dropping is this?! You have to see the whole party over here.
This photo is probably my main inspiration. I ordered tons of seeded and silver dollar eucalyptus and I'm hoping to create the neutral, soft, botanical look seen here.
My mother-in-law is an incredibly talented baker, so she's doing all our sweets. She's making a couple naked cakes, Rifle-inspired cookies, and delicious cupcakes. I can't wait to see what she comes up with!
I've taken monthly photos with the Rifle Paper Co botanical letter garland spelling out each milestone, so I plan to display them on an empty frame similar to this. So fun!
Such a beautiful white palette with eucalyptus.
Love this naked cake!
This is just one example of a Rifle-inspired cookie, and my mother-in-law is going to work her magic and put her own twist on things. So cute!
The party is next Sunday and I'm already half set up haha! I simply can't wait to celebrate our girl! She has blessed us more than I ever imaged and made our lives so full and joyful. She deserves every second of delight (and sugar!) that I hope this party brings her. I'll of course have photos of the whole affair for you post-party. You may even get a glimpse of our daughter (I've been a bit shy about posting her photo online much, but I may not be able to help myself with party pictures).
What do you think? Can I pull it off?! Wish me luck!!
