It's hard to choose a theme for a first birthday - most of the time the party is more for the parents. For my daughters birthday I decided to Pinwheels as the theme; something fresh and whimsical!! She looks fantastic in purple so I paired that with green and voila the party basics were formed.
I ordered custom pinwheels from Pinwhirls, using damask and polka dots.
The idea for a banner came from This Mommy Loves!
Izzy B and I made her pinwheel headband out of fun foam. I ordered purple and green lollipops from Oriental Trading.
There were tons of kids at the party; lots of 2 1/2 year olds and their craft project was to decorate a fun foam visor hat and their favor was a large lollipop. Favors for the babies were little bags filled with a book, sunglasses, pinwheel headband and a pinwheel clothespin.
Vanessa really loved her party, she was so good with all the people around. Here's to many more successful parties!
