PARTY DETAILS, as told by Justine…
As my daughter was born just 4 days before my husband’s birthday, we took her home from the hospital for the first time on his birthday so when we were deciding on a theme for her first birthday we both knew that “Daddy’s Little Princess” was the way to go.
Styling in a different country was like working with a blank canvas as I had limited resources and contacts. However, I was inspired by my daughter’s ruffle tutu gown to create a special tutu-like princess dessert table. I designed a trestle cover that was made out of multiple layers of tulle which was then custom made by a local seamstress.
Party printables were custom designed by Mon Tresor, and the backdrop was designed by myself. I custom made princess party hats that were embelished with lace and princess veils, converted from regular dollar shop party hats. I also hand made princess tutu cupcake toppers from crepe paper which were sewn together and affixed to pink paper straws.
Accompanying the beautiful ruffle ombre crown topper cake were delicious desserts like Sparkle Fairy Cookie Pops, Crown Cookies with little Princesses names, Pink Macarons, Lemon Meringue, Strawberry Yogurt Mousse and Vanilla Cupcakes. Also, there was a gorgeous display of pink and white colored candy in apothecary jars embellished with a variety of my daughter’s gorgeous headbands. Mini “milk bottles” were converted from juice bottles from a local supermarket.
Other details included pre-wrapped tulle almond candy packs for guests who left early before the candy bar was open, a “Cinderella’s Feet” impressions kit activity for my daughter’s little guests to take part in as they are all still very young which also worked as a keepsake from the party. Each girl went home with a personalised princess story book featuring their names as well as my daughter’s name in the story line. A polaroid booth was also setup for all the guests as well as take-home candy bags for all who came to celebrate this special day. The kid’s table was decorated with tutu chair covers which also doubled up as a take home gift for the older girls.
