The thing that differentiates a wedding/adult event from a kiddy party is all the fun themes you get to work with that make conceptualizing ideas for the event so much more interesting and inspiring, and this party was no different!
Baby Vivi's "bird"-day theme was taken from a bedding collection her mom found at Pottery Barn Kids. The event colors of sky blue, soft pink, and cream, mixed with blue and white polka dots complemented the existing mural throughout the interior of the hotel ballroom and so ideal for carrying out the bird theme. Guests left personal messages for the birthday girl on die-cut birds hanging from a white manzanita tree. Painted bird cages filled with wheat grass and bright gerbera daisies highlighted our tables, mixed with lovely French tulips, wooden birdhouses and mini ceramic bird figurines.
The hotel's pastry team did an amazing job with all our mini sweets, including cute birdie cake pops and mini ice cream sandwiches, accented with more bird-inspired props. And the cake was designed by taking a scene directly from the PBK bedding that started it all.
I can't say I'm a big fan of birds in general, but loved all our themed details for Vivi's party! It was a perfect combination of classiness to fit the formality of the venue, and simultaneously feminine and whimsical to celebrate a very "tweet" baby girl's first birthday!
