{Ralph Lauren Inspired} Polo Club First Birthday Party

When your husband loves Ralph Lauren and your toddler looks absolutely adorable in those little polos, a Polo Club First Birthday Party is the perfect fit! Ebony Sparkes of Sparkling Events & Designs styled this fresh & sophisticated party with preppy blue & green patterns and lots of chic little polo players popping up throughout. I also love how she cleverly personalized the celebration by dubbing it the “Sparkes Polo Club”. ;) P.S. This theme would also translate beautifully to boy baby shower – or even a stylish adult birthday!

PARTY HIGHLIGHTS to look out for:

– Tiered cake with cool polo player silhouette topper, bold preppy patterns, and fondant polo shirts
– Ralph Lauren polo shirt name banner + cute favor bags customized with sparkly “1″s
– Build a Stuffed Horse activity in a homemade “stable” + trophy cup party favors
– Ralph Lauren box risers + mini polo player wooden cutouts & decals on the milk bottles
– Preppy wheat grass table runners with yellow & white gerbera daisies “growing” from them

Here, I styled a Girly Space themed party featuring the cutest Novi Star alien dolls and my newest “Starstruck” printable collection (now available in my shop) featuring custom designed girly spaceships and lots of bling!
