Ok, so I know Emily is only 6 months old, but yes….I have started planning her 1st birthday party! I think I just want it to be perfect and I want her to look back on pictures one day and see what an amazing party she had. I have so many ideas floating around in this crazy head of mine.
I have been back & forth on what theme I wanted to go with. She was born in November so I initially wanted something “fall-ish”. But not corny “fall-ish”. Are you with me? But then I saw some cute all pink parties. Everything was pink. Different shades of pink…..but pink. I thought that was super cute. Then I saw some cute parties with turquoise and pink and green and red and purple and I loved it!!! But then I thought it wasn’t girly enough. I was so back-and-forth and just plain ‘ole indecisive.
Then a few weeks ago when we were in South Florida, I had to make my usual trip to Ikea since we don’t have one here and all. It would be an utter sin if I went down there and didn’t make a trip to Ikea. While we were there, I saw it. Yes, IT!!! I saw the inspiration piece for Emily’s first birthday party!
It was perfect! It had the turquoise and the pink and green and purple that I like. It had owls which I am lovin’ right now and they bring in the Fall element. But I also thought it was still kind of girly because the one tree looks like a doily so I thought I could bring that into play in the decor for her party! Of course I snagged this piece of art for $9.99 so I can have it to display at her party!
So the planning and searching for fun stuff has begun. I have a pin board on Pinterest that I created a while back for her party inspiration. I’m definitely going to start pinning more stuff to it now that I know what direction I’m going in with this party.
I’m thinking some of these will be good:
