Ombre has taken the wedding + event (and fashion, and interiors..) trends by STORM! It’s a fabulous color fading that is quite fun for parties, especially pink girl’s birthday parties like this chic party by Ashley Ramirez of Eighteenth Avenue Events. As Ashley described, “Instead of going with a young kid themed party, this ombre pink variety mixed with gold accents made this one year birthday look classy. The overall theme of the party was pink ombre with lots of balloons. The invitations were printed on balloons that the guests had to inflate to read (while their little one got to play with the balloon at home). The extra balloon invitations were blown up all over the floor inside the house of the party, as well as a variety of balloons all throughout the house in the many shades of pink.”
We are smitten with the balloons and have loved seeing them used more and more in parties lately! Just look at that sweet girl’s smile above? Happiness! Celebrating with darling parties is all about making memories and this party is certainly going to be a cherished memory. Ashley shared more party details below…
“As you entered the party, you were greeted with a bar that held hanging decor of monthly photos of the past year of Brooke’s life, gold framed photos from her one year photo session, as well as a three foot handmade Number 1 cut out with pink ombre tissue paper covering the entire number. As you began to walk through the house, you noticed the balloon invitations blown up all over the floor leading you to where the party was. The party mainly took place outside, thank goodness for GREAT weather that day. It is not a birthday party without a cake and dessert bar…The entire a dessert bar was set up outside with gold linens, a photo of the birthday girl from her smash cake photoshoot, and framed with pink ombre balloons. All the desserts were pink, including the large ombre cake, mini ombre cakes, pink cherry pretzels, pink dipped rice crispy treat pops, number 1 ombre lollipops, pink waffers, pink sixlets, strawberry brownies, pink lemonade, and fruit cups with strawberry watermelon and raspberries.
For the activities we had bubble machine set up, outside playground, a trampoline, as well as a coloring station inside therefore all ages of kids could enjoy. The favors reflected our activities were small boxes of crayons and bubbles tied together with a metallic slap bracelet.
