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!
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.
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.
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.
