PARTY DETAILS, as told by Amy

A dream like birthday party for my dearest first year old Mia. The color scheme is pastel green, pink, and yellow. The main animals are the pink elephant and yellow giraffe. I spent about 2 months working on planning the party and getting everything done with 3 kids in the house! This is the second birthday party I have planned this year and I just love it!

Tania from totful memories designed the Safari Girl Collection printable birthday party package for Mia and everything in it is just adorable! I spiced up the paper details with color streamers, crepe paper, lace, ribbon, etc. I designed and handmade her felt birthday cone hat, highchair decoration, favorite bags, photo frames, little felt animals, tutus, necklaces, headband, finger print canvas, cake topper, etc. I also made the elephant and giraffe cookies, macarons, and cake pops. Cupcakes and cake were baked by my husband and decorated by me. I still can’t believe the party is over! I am so glad every little detail was captured and preserved. Love it, love it, just love it!

I adore and admire your work. I have no creativity whatsoever but when i see something that attracts me I get inspired. I am planning my 2nd daughter arianas 1st birthday party for sept 2 and iam so lost with all these wonderful ideas and want to do everything. I def would luv to learn how to do those jaffre and elephant cookies. They look great. I have been saving all of her baby glass jar foods hoping i can do something with them. If you have any ideas you would love to share i would sooooo appreciate it. thank you for the inspiration and hope to get as creative as you.

I LOVE this party!! I’m in the process of creating decorations for my daughter’s 1st birthday & really want to re-create this high chair ribbon decoration – any pointers on how to do so? I’ve seen some other pics online that try to achieve this look, but the end result looks kind of cheap & messy, whereas this is whimsical & beautiful! I would love any advice on selecting ribbons & how they are attached so that the finished product is as darling as this one!
