Elin’s First Birthday Party

I have been busy trying to plan Elin’s second birthday party. I unfortunately haven’t decided what the theme will be, but I am hoping to figure that out soon and really get to planning. After I posted a picture from Elin’s first birthday party on my Five for Friday post, I got a few emails asking for more details and pictures. I have lots of pictures, so I am only going to post the basic detail pictures for party inspiration.

Elin’s birthday is on May 16th, so we had her party on that following Sunday. The weather was beautiful and sunny. When I started planning, I had no theme in mind but just wanted the party to be pink and feature the number one. The first main element I picked out was the printable theme. After searching through Etsy, I found the Chickabug shop and picked the “Pretty in Pink” collection. From there, I just tried to match the pink colors. Along the way, I found some awesome vendors and had a wonderful experience with each and every one of them.

Elin had a lovely day and I hope she has a wonderful second birthday in 2.5 months! Here are some detail photos from Elin’s first birthday.

  19. Elin and Ezzy’s bdays are only 3 days apart! (Well, 1 year minus 3 days.) You did such a great job with her first bday party. I’m trying to plan Ezzy’s now and I go back and forth between wanting to go all out and then feeling overwhelmed and wanting to keep it simple. I’ll be happy if it turns out half as nice as Elin’s!
