{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

{Modern + Crafty} Geometric First Birthday Party

Oh. My. Goodness! The first birthday party that Amy of Amy Stone Photography threw for her daughter, Hayley, is seriously the coolness. 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 dose of style, happy colors, and clever DIY projects that went into this spunky little celebration. There’s actually great inspiration to be found here for geometric themed parties of ANY occasion.

P.S. I just noticed on Amy’s blog that little Hayley already turned 2 last week! How time flies, right? Happy belated, little one!

PARTY HIGHLIGHTS to look out for:

– Colorful hexagon photo booth backdrop + color-blocked hexagon cake toppers
– Super cool translucent geometric mobile hanging above the dessert table
– Homemade hexagon smash cake with pink, orange, and yellow layers inside (details, details!)
– Clever table mats fashioned from wooden paint stir sticks & painted with a geo pattern
