Pink Glam 1st Birthday Party

Today's party feature goes to this sassy PINK GLAM 1ST BIRTHDAY PARTY submitted by Carissa Brown. Such a fun and girly 1st birthday party! Perfect for that little spunky 1 year old. What says sass better than some zebra print and hot pink?! So cute. Love that fuchsia high chair! 

Here is what Carissa said about the party- "I planned and hosted this party myself and had the event professionally photographed by Liz Thomas Photography. The theme of the party was anything pink, girly and glam with a little pumpkin twist.

Upon arrival at the party, guest were greeted to a chalkboard arrow sign, from Michael's, that my husband, Chris painted and I made and a wreath with some sparkly flowers. We also placed pumpkins in black urns flanking the entrance that my husband painted with a “1”.

The dessert table was dressed in a custom made tablecloth of black & white stripes and polka dots. Chris and I made the pink tissue rosette “D” that we attached to an oversized mirror to create the backdrop for the table. The menu place cards are wooden Halloween cutouts that I painted with chalkboard paint and glittered. Desserts included mini caramel apples, rice crispy pumpkins, sugar cookies, chocolate dipped pretzels, cupcakes and a smash cake. Drinks were served in mason jars with vinyl chalkboard labels and black & white straws garnished with “Delaney”, “is 1!” labels that I made.

Guests munched on mummy dogs, fruit, guacamoldy, mac n’cheese and veggies. The homemade mac n’ cheese was packaged in cute individual containers creating a unique display. I had a custom runner made for the food table to coordinate with the dessert table tablecloth.

I found a vintage highchair on craigslist, Chris painted it high gloss pink and I made the birthday girl’s party hat from a zebra folder. Several weeks before the party I took some celebration photos of Delaney and I enlarged them to display. I placed one in an ornate black oval frame above the highchair to add drama. The party was so much fun!"
