Stacey of Design Addict Mom recently threw an absolutely precious carnival-inspired first birthday party for her son, Ian! She used my rainbow theme and a variety of circus-themed decorations to set the tone for the party.
Stacey says, “I wanted Ian’s first birthday party to reflect his personality; happy, fun, and vibrant.”
Stacey labeled her apothecary jars using blue removable chalkboard sheets from AC Moore. She freehand cut the bracket shapes and used chalk to write on them.
The blue paper straws were displayed in an oversized glass container with a sticker on the front.
Stacey created an accent wall using pages taken from a book of inspirational notes and happy illustrations.
Outside, party guests had fun at a photo booth (with printable props from Paper & Cake), and there was also a face painter and balloon maker!
Ian’s cake featured an elephant on top and a monogram on the front. The unique color scheme makes it really special!
Above the goodie bags, Stacie wrote a huge thank-you message using paper plates and decorative tape. She used painter’s tape to temporarily affix each plate to the wall. Then, each child went home with their own mini gumball machine.
Thank you so much for sharing, Stacey! Happy 1st birthday to Ian! : )
