first birthday party inspiration

January 29, 2012

It’s nearly the end of January which means the last day of March will arrive and greet us in the blink of an eye. What’s the last day of March, you ask? Why, it’s my sweet Emery Lynn’s birthday and 2012 marks her FIRST. My once tiny little baby is practically a toddler and is turning one in a mere two months. I realize I’ve got to get my act together and plan a birthday celebration fit for a princess a cool kid.

I’m not really one for smocked dresses, enormous bows, cartoon characters or monograms on every possible surface, so I’d like to keep this party relaxed, laid-back, coordinated (read: not matchy-matchy) and certainly not cheesy. Sorry Dora and Disney, you’re simply not invited this year. As much as I was against pink in the beginning of this “We’re having a girl!” journey, I’ve come to accept it and even appreciate the ultimate girly color when it’s accompanied by pops of turquoise, bold graphics and even vibrant floral patterns. With this in mind, along with my beloved gray and white chevron pattern, I’ve pinned several bits of inspiration for the party-to-be.
