Little Deer First Birthday

This was Eloise's First Birthday (last year)! I finally blogged about it, yay! I'm sorry, I'm so slow now when it comes to blog posts. I told myself this year I will get better and what do you know, it's been already half a year and I'm so behind! My apologies for those who asked about it way earlier, here it is!

The Setting:
It was very small and intimate.
Picnic style at the park with only immediate family.
Weather couldn't have been more perfect! 

I chose the deer theme because the little stuffed deer was the very first thing I bought when I found out I was having a girl and I used it as a prop in her monthly photos so I thought it would be cute to make it into a theme. 

The Decor:
I made the fabric garland for the sweets table. Tied it between two large trees. I used Eloise's vintage minty de-stressed dresser as the focal point. The dresser was small enough to fit only for birthday cake, cookies, photo frame and little deer figurenes. 

Number 1 Table:
I made this out of an old bulletin board. Hot glued some moss, added the Instagram monthly photos to create the number one. On this table I included gorgeous pink peonies on the side, with a printed quote, floral crowns, ballon, more vintage deer figurines and a basket full of party favors.

Party Favors:
I found the most adorable print on etsy! By Green Door Handmade
I printed it on wax cookie bags. Inside the bags I added a small dish with soap for the adults, and for the children I put candy and a small deer figurine, which I found from Michaels.

Deer Cookies: portland custom cookies
Turned out perfect and so so yummy! 

Wooden Utensils: Local party shop. But you can find them just about anywhere now! shop sweet lulu

Silk Floral Crowns: I handmade each one for the guests to wear including two for Eloise.
Supplies from your local craft store.

Eloise's Two Dresses: Both vintage, from Etsy.

Hope you enjoyed! Now I'm off to plan her 2nd Birthday!! yikes! Time flies!
