This is one of my all time favorite parties. It’s detailed and beautiful, but looks like tons of fun! I can’t even do this spectacularly detailed party justice to here is Alexandra:
As an event stylist, it was only natural to have been planning Clover’s first birthday for quite some time. A well-designed gathering is my passion, and what better way to celebrate our baby’s first year of life than a backyard party with 40 of our friends and family. Clover’s first year was spent by my side as I continued my work and travels. She came along for the ride and spent a lot of time at parties, so I was inspired to embrace that theme in her life and throw her a beautiful fiesta.
It was a sunny day, and we transformed our little backyard into a festive space full of flowers, succulents, gold pinatas, and white tissue flags. An artist friend even painted a watercolour donkey for guests to play pin-the-tail-on-the-donkey!
Food was a highlight! My talented husband planned and cooked the beautiful menu including tortilla soup, chill pork tacos, salmon and halibut tacos, home-made salsas, the works! We finished things off with a stunning tres leche cake with spiced chocolate cake frosting and homemade churro flavoured marshmallows for guests to roast over a bonfire.
Guests took time to write Clover a message in different cards that she’ll read on her birthday over the next 18 years. I can’t wait to open those messages throughout the years to come!
We ate and mingled and celebrated our sweet girl. She loved it. Guests left with a tiny succulent in hand, and Clover went down for a long nap. :)
This family is so beautiful. I adore their simple nursery and the huge love you can see between them. The new parents look so happy and full of joy I just can’t get enough! Baby Clark is so tiny and and lucky to be sleeping in such a beautiful room with a beautiful family.
