Sunshine & Bubbles Birthday Party
I am constantly in awe of the cuteness that hits my inbox on a regular basis. Jaw-dropping, beautiful, amazing parties + ideas! You all inspire me. This birthday party is full of pops of aqua + yellow. Jasmine from IDEA! event + style knew she wanted something DIFFERENT for her daughter Naomi’s 1st birthday party. She also knew she didn’t want any PINK!
“Don’t get me wrong, I’m as girly and pink as the girl next door! But I also have a feeling that as Naomi gets older, she will want her share of the pink princess and fairy tea parties! So I decided to go with the currently trendy color scheme of YELLOW + GRAY, with accents of BRIGHT AQUA to make it fun! AQUA is my favorite accent color – it goes so beautifully with so many colors – pink + aqua, orange + aqua, even just white + aqua…” – Jasmine
“Gray and yellow with aqua ribbon, to set the tone for the party! I added a lace doily overlay for a pretty and delicate look. And rhinestones around the sun for some chic glamour!”
THE DESSERT TABLE:
“A simple setup with a focus on the theme colors and symmetry. I wanted to keep it light and fresh feeling, with just enough desserts for everyone to get a taste of, rather than an overdose of sugar. We served Lemon Bars, Chocolate-Dipped Marshmallows and Vanilla Pudding in mini martini glasses. The vanilla pudding was a big hit with the kids AND adults! We also had cupcakes, powdered sugar donuts, vanilla meringue cookies, sugar cookies and the FABULOUS cake of course, by Euro Style Cakes. It was vanilla with layers of European-style frosting, not too sweet and delicately perfect!”
THE PHOTO BOOTH:
“We planned a simple, chic photo booth with hand-made signs and some funny yellow sunglasses that guests could use to pose and ‘send messages’ to Naomi through their pictures. Kind of like a visual guest-book! It turned into a super-fun and hilarious activity and we got some great pictures out of it! I’m very happy with how it turned out and Naomi has some amazing moments recorded for her by family and friends for when she’s older.”

This party is just beautiful! I particularly love the paper products, especially the “liquid sunshine” tags and the cake topper! I also love the addition of aqua to the sunshiny color palette!
