Bold patterns, vibrant colors, and whimsical, baby inspired elements made for a bright & happy ambiance at the event.

If you’d like to use this theme for your own baby shower, find it in Hostess Ink here!

{My Daughter’s} Snow Bunny First Birthday Party

snow buny first birthday party decorations, smash cake, and printables

Last month, my youngest daughter turned one, and you can probably guess what that means…party time! ;) We somehow started calling her “bunny”, so because of that nickname and the fact that she has a winter birthday, I thought it would be fun to create a “Snow Bunny” theme for her first birthday party. I realize that the idea of carrots and bunny tails mixed in with a “snowy” themed birthday might sound a little random at first, but it ended up coming together in the end, with a little help from themed food and crafty decorations. ;)

pink and orange winter bunny birthday party decorations

And speaking of the party coming together, I have to confess that despite my best intentions to not be last minute with everything like I was with Macy’s first birthday, I again found myself starting on it within the few days before the party – and finishing up the paper designs oh… about 1.5 hours before! The responsibilities that have come with 2 young kids (ages 1 and 2) + a growing business seem to have me in a constant battle with the clock… and one that the clock usually wins. (grrr) I know many of you can relate though, and I’ve started to accept that it’s just the way things are going to be for the next couple years. All I have to say is thank goodness for friends & family willing to help out in a pinch (including my mother & father-in-law who made most of the food for the party!).

PARTY HIGHLIGHTS to look out for:

– Bunny shaped grilled cheese, snow cone cupcakes, and rice krispie “snow balls”
– DIY painted mason jars filled with cotton ball (“bunny tail”) flowers + balsa wood flowers
– Crepe paper carrots & bunny wreath + “bunny” kids chair with cotton tail & foam ears
– Homemade smash cake with paper-and-stripy-straw cake topper
– Pics of the birthday girl embellished with winter hat and other “snowy” graphics
