Garden Themed 1st Birthday

This last weekend I had the opportunity to travel to San Diego to help my dear friend Joy with her daughter's 1st birthday party. Our families have remained close over the years - her father is my brother's god-father and our mothers were best friends back in the day. I've always considered Joy to be like an older sister to me and it has been so fun to watch as she's become a successful clinical psychologist, loving wife, and now 1st time mom. You can only imagine my excitement when I had the chance to to help her with the dessert table for Amelia's 1st birthday and baptism celebration.

The party had a garden theme with a pink and gold color palette. The backdrop consisted of paper lanterns and tissue paper poms in various shades of pink. I love how the poms resemble flowers and that the custom birthday banner added the perfect pop of gold. The dessert table featured an all pink candy bar as well as baked desserts. The birthday cake by Marinold Cakes was a sweet design of lace and bows in pink and white. The mini chocolate chip cookies were homemade.The gold vases with pink gerber daisies and carnations in the petites fleurs crate added an elegant touch in keeping to the garden theme.

Additional details to look out for are the gold painted mason jars with pink and white flower arrangements that were done Joy's friend Liza and were the centerpieces for the tables. The favor consisted of stamped muslin bags filled with seeds. They were arranged on the wooden herb garden set up. I adore how the paper roses I wrapped the sides with turned out. They transformed an otherwise rustic piece into looking sweet and dainty. I love the overall look and am thrilled that Joy was happy with the dessert table. Happy 1st birthday dear Amelia! I look forward to watching you and Kaylen grow in the years to come.
