{Soaring to One} Lovely Balloon Themed 1st Birthday

For her daughter’s first birthday (and Korean Dol) Grace Kim crafted up a beautiful Balloon Inspired Celebration full of thoughtful details and sweet, handmade touches! I especially love all the creative ways she incorporated kraft paper textures – from the polka dot table runner and paper mache party hats to the totally unique dessert table backdrop – giving this party a look that’s lovely and chic, but also totally approachable. Nice work, mom! ;)

PARTY HIGHLIGHTS to look out for:

– Yarn letters + hand-painted paper mache party hats with yarn pom toppers
– Personalized temporary tattoos, including a custom illustration of the birthday girl!
– Inflatable balloon party invitation + giant 36″ balloons flanking the dessert table
– DIY polka dot kraft paper table runner + laser-cut wood smash cake topper
– Floral tube dessert table backdrop + simple-chic cake topped with fresh flowers

Charming Rustic Little Pumpkin Baby Shower

I always love seeing occasion showers with a seasonal twist, and this baby shower is a perfect example! Katie Farmer of Celebration Lane drew inspiration from fall colors, flavors, and textures to create a Rustic Little Pumpkin Baby Shower theme with just the right mix of sweetness and vintage charm. And as impressive as the styling and all these pretty treats may be (I mean, the fondant toppers actually have burlap and lace textures!), my favorite detail has to be the adorable Big Sis! ;)

PARTY HIGHLIGHTS to look out for:

– Simple naked cake with mini burlap & lace bunting + cute baby-sized pumpkin naked cakes
– Fall-inspired rag tie fabric garland + bright orange mason jars wrapped in lace
– Mini pumpkin donuts displayed on a bed of crushed Oreo “dirt”
– Incredibly detailed lacy fondant toppers and lace-adorned onsie sugar cookies

I happen to be a huge fan of geometric themes myself, so I might be a teensy bit partial in that respect ;) – but I’m sure that most anyone will appreciate the hefty […]
