Apr16 First Birthday Garden Bunny 2014
Today we have a first birthday party that is perfect inspiration for an easter party, it will make you melt!!! I can’t do it justice so here’s Photographer and excellent planner of this party Michele Hart to give you the details…
“Adelyn is one! Literally 12 months ago she was a quiet, cuddly baby in my arms that could barely keep her eyes open and now she is not only walking but running… and eating real food, and saying her first words, and pretending she is a momma to her baby doll. I can’t even remember what 3 months ago was like.
Some people say that spending money and time on a big birthday bash is excessive but I really like doing something extra special to mark the passage of time to celebrate Adelyn. I want her to be awe inspired and giddy with excitement all day long. And to be surrounded by warmth, love and beauty. This is what I came up with:
Adelyn loves animals – especially the soft cuddly ones – so I decided to have a garden bunny theme with lots of soft neural colors. The bunnies and balloons gave the event a playful and youthful feel but the overall tone was very sophisticated and elegant. Garden roses stole the show making appearances not only on the table but as a garland on geronimo balloons, as a cake topper, and on the back of the highchair. The “Garden Treats” menu added to the festivities and all dishes featured carrots – except for the cottontail macaroons – and provided a light lunch for our guests.
The concept and vision really came together when I started working with lana frankel on Adelyn’s invites. She did a beautiful job hand illustrating everything from the invites to the menus. Erin with plum sage brought my garden vision together with the use of beautiful garden roses and greenery to make creative vocal points for the day. calluna events worked with chairished rentals to create a simple dinner table layout to match the rest of the decor. mulberries cake shop made the tastly carrot cake and tee & cakes prepared the vanilla macaroons.”
So we’re all obsessed over the floral garland so I have the most lovely news for you, Michele Hart made it and has a really helpful tutorial on her blog which you can see HERE
Also, did you love the party hats!!! Michele Hart has a tutorial on how she made them, you can see it HERE
