Confession: There's a lot of pressure in party-blogger-land to do features, to show every last detail…

For her daughter Londyn’s first birthday party, crafty mama (and very sweet customer!) Kacie went with a Pretty in Pink theme. Kacie used her enviable papercrafting skills to create the most beautiful bunting banner, and of course filled the party with pink from top to bottom!
Kacie says, “I got the most of the ideas from the the party you showed on your blog. We even created the exact cake stand from an old light fixture! I threw in a few of my own ideas along way that I got from Pinterest.”
Isn’t this the most amazing bunting banner? To make it, Kacie used a printable banner, paper rosettes, and a variety of scrapbooking papers. Kacie says, “I added lots of little details to kind of make the banner look shabby chic-ish.”
The dessert table was decorated with lollipop topiaries. Guests chose from a variety of candy, including Sixlets, Mike & Ikes, strawberry Whoppers, Airheads, rock candy, M&M’s, and licorice twists.
Kacie added rhinestones to her printable buffet cards for an extra-special touch.
Small bags of cotton candy were decorated with personalized stickers. The flower cookies on sticks were homemade. Kacie says, “My wonderful mother-in-law Jane LeBlanc made the flower cookies. Isn’t she talented? She also made hot pink number one cookies and light pink L cookies. They all tasted as good as they looked!”
Kacie served nine small cakes on a vintage chandelier that she turned into a cake stand. The rose swirled frosting was done in ombré tones, and so were the cake layers inside!
Londyn’s high chair had a special significance. Kacie says, “The high chair she is in was actually my husband’s when he was little! I painted it white and then roughed it up to make it look shabby chic.”
Thank you so much for sharing your party, Kacie! Happy 1st birthday to Londyn! : )
