Pretty in Pink party: Elin Paige is 1!


My sweet customer Chrissy recently put together a “Pretty in Pink” party for her daughter Elin Paige’s first birthday. She used a classic and simple color palette of pink, white, and silver, with gorgeous textures and details such as a ruffle cake, pink hydrangeas, and paper rosettes. The party decor was made using my printable “Pretty in Pink” decor kit, plus custom water labels. Other special touches to look for: beautiful custom cookies, a month-by-month photo display, and birthday girl Elin Paige’s fabulously frilly custom party hat!

Pink lemonade is a must! The printable sign is part of my “Pretty in Pink” printable decor collection, as is the month-by-month photo banner:

The banner can be made using horizontal or vertical photos, although Chrissy opted for all vertical photos for a uniform look. The printable circles at the bottom of each banner piece say what age Elin is in each picture.

    I saw these on Kara's party ideas and am sad to see that the photo plates are no longer available. It's too bad because I wanted to do this for my daughter's birthday in December.

      Hi Linda! It is too bad that Hallmark stopped making them. There is an alternative option with Shutterfly you may be able to use. : )

      Hi Steve! I wish I could help but those photo plates came from Hallmark and, sadly, they no longer offer that service. The next best thing would be to make a melamine photo plates at Shutterfly. Hope that helps! : )
