For some reason a baby's first birthday seems to trump the rest. I have a theory that this is because it's the only one that the parents get to choose everything because by their second, they're old enough to decide for themselves. My husband and I were in Big W the other day (a department store like Target) and the lady in the party section said she has served people that have spent thousands on balloons alone for their child's first birthday. While I definitely won't go that crazy I am excited to plan the first of many parties for my little girl. I have mainly been going to my beloved Pinterest for Inspiration which is awesome for anything and everything. The only real ideas I have are that I'd like it to be baby pink and gold with touches of burlap (if touches of burlap are a thing haha). I want there to be photos all around and I want to DIY as much as I can. I like the idea of using fake flowers and fairy lights to create a whimsical vibe and I like the idea of creating things that I can use in her playroom or bedroom.
There's so many ideas out there and the theme I've chosen is such a popular one at the moment. I've already DIY'ed a baby pink tutu for her which she may wear inspired by Marie from BitsandClips on YouTube. She had a video last year on making a no sew tutu which is so so easy you've got to give it a go! Perfect for those who want to DIY but don't really have the skill ;)
I'll update you if I make anything else and let me know if you've got any ideas of things I could do for her birthday. I've also thought about possibly adding mint green to the mix but we'll see :)
