Girly & PINK Ombre First Birthday Party

Pink Ombre First Birthday Party

Gorgeous peonies, party ruffles and playful confetti… Bridget’s first birthday has no shortage of pretty pink details! Mommy, Erin Durocher, dreamed up her daughter’s Girly & PINK Ombre First Birthday Party with accents of aqua, crafted photo garland and a brilliant cake by Entirely Sweet!

PARTY HIGHLIGHTS to look out for:

– White ruffle dessert table backdrop, chocolate dipped pretzels & ombre chevron cupcake toppers
– Aqua high chair + pink glittery “one” birthday banner and embellished party hat by Crepe Confectionary
– Drizzled “Thanks for popping by!” popcorn favors
– Ruffled pink tutu birthday girl outfit (and stylish party outfit for mom too!)

Ombre Pink First Birthday


PARTY DETAILS, as told by Erin

I threw a 1st birthday party for my daughter Bridget. I choose to do a pink ombre theme with some aqua accents. I did a pink ombre ruffle cake which turned out awesome. . Her high chair was wood that I painted aqua and made ruffle streamers for the background. Favors included candy bars with handmade wrappers to match the party and chocolate drizzled popcorn. My favorite feature was the photo display on the fire place. Each month I would take a photo of my daughter on her chair to show her growth. I found some wood frames at Micheals that I spray painted different colors of pink and put the photos in them. I think it turned out really nice and showed her growth of the past 12 months.

Erin SAYS:

It was a friends high chair that we painted aqua. She got it from Craigslist. But the Thrift Store might have some too. Its just an old style wooden high chair.

I love this! I was searching pinterest for pink ombre first birthday party ideas, and followed the link to this, and what a funny coincidence, my daughter is named Bridget, too! It helped me visualize this super well! :)

Hopefully this isn’t too late but I got her outfit at Von Maur. It is made by Popatu. Here it is on Amazon. http://www.amazon.com/POPATU-Pink-PettiDress-Size-Months/dp/B004SQT490/ref=sr_1_25?ie=UTF8&qid=1386732776&sr=8-25&keywords=Popatu

Adorable party! Do you remember the specific color you used to paint the high chair? I just love it. Thanks so much!

Erin SAYS:

Hi Jessica, just now seeing this. The color is called Aqua Glow by Valspar. I bought it at Lowes.

Rachel SAYS:

I love the banner on the fireplace that has the pictures in it! Where is that from? Or did you make it?

Erin SAYS:

I got the frames from Michaels. They were a lightweight wood. I covered them in tacky glue and the poured glitter over top. To secure it I just used firm hair spray to save money.

Love it! Where did you find the banner for the high chair?

Lyndsey SAYS:

Agree with Angie!! Where did you get the “ONE” banner on the high chair?! Love it!

The one banner is from Crepe Confectionary on Etsy! Looks like they’re taking a break right now… but hopefully it’s just for the holidays! Lots of Etsy sellers create similar things though if you’re looking for something right away… I’d recommend checking out Charming Touch Parties too. :)
