inspiration for celebration

Groovy & HIP Backyard Bash {60th Birthday!}

Peace, Love, and BIRTHDAY Cake! For Cathleen’s 60th birthday, friends and family cozied up in piles of pretty pillows – and amidst beautiful, boho chic decor – for a Groovy & HIP Backyard Bash to celebrate her special milestone… 60′s style! From lace tambourines to floral party crowns and a wild child edible flower cake, Katie Webb and team from Intertwined Events definitely dreamed up a fabulous evening full of flower power FUN. I especially love that all the party guests (who look like they’re having an absolute blast, BTW!) arrived dressed in 60′s inspired, “hippie bohemian” outfits to celebrate in style for what surely was… the party of the decade. ;)

PARTY HIGHLIGHTS to look out for:

– Ripped fabric curtains, assorted colorful pillows, and an eclectic mix of linens & textiles
– Groovy edible flower birthday cake from Sweet & Saucy
– “All You Need Is Love” napkins + Live Lavender Love” & “Tie Dyed” cocktails
– Flower crowns, lace tambourines & bohemian chic attire (think crochet dresses & fringe vests)
– Hippie inspired props & accents: dream catchers, peace signs, colorful daisies, & more!

Glam Nautical First Birthday Party {Gold, Pink & Navy}

I’m loving the decidedly GLAM twist that Courtney Adams of Courtney Adams Design put on this gold, pink & navy Nautical First Birthday Party for her (super adorable) little girl, Parker! Eye catching details like a giant marquee light anchor, bold sequined linens, and cleverly named treats (i.e. “Watermelon Wharf”!) were tied together beautifully with the help of chic nautical themed printables by Chickabug. For boatloads of pretty party inspiration + some darling mommy-and-me moments, set sail for the rest of the party below….

PARTY HIGHLIGHTS to look out for:

– Gold sequin & marquee anchor backdrop + giant balloons with ribbon tassels
– Script “One” silhouette cake topper + tiny gold party hat/headband for the birthday girl!
Buoy Blueberry Sangria & True North Tea (all decked out with glittery gold bows)
Stowaway yogurt parfaits, Watermelon Wharf fruit pops, and Convoy kettle chips
– Homemade “life saver” door wreath + anchor silhouette cupcake toppers

{Splish Splash} Twins Beach Bash Birthday Party

It’s already quite the task to style a birthday party for one kid, but add another one to the mix and you’ve got yourself a real feat! Case in point: check out this awesome Beach Bash Birthday Party that Julie Verville of Crowning Details created the for twin boys, Tanner & Joey. And even though summer is fast approaching, not all of us have easy access to the beach… so to fully “transport” party guests for this occasion, Julie even had sand brought into the backyard!! I’d say that definitely deserves four thumbs up ;).

PARTY HIGHLIGHTS to look out for:

– Beach ball cake balls & flip flop cookies + crabby croissant sandwiches & party circle cupcake toppers
– Beach-inspired tablescape with starfish & nautical floral centerpieces + driftwood framed signs
– Inflatable surfboards & water slides + a beach ball & fish netting dessert table backdrop
– Fondant beach ball topped birthday cakes & beach bucket party favors filled with sand essentials
