{real parties} lemonade & sunshine FIRST birthday - Stephanie Toole

Party Girl: Stephanie

Celebration Type: 1st Birthday Party
Theme: Lemonade & Sunshine
Inspiration: this party
Color Palette: Pink & Yellow

Stephanie is one of my sweetest readers...
always taking time to reach out and comment on my posts - oftentimes inspiring me.
I was SO thrilled when she sent me photos of her daughter's first birthday party - thanking me for the inspiration from the party I hosted for my two older daughters.

The sugar-sweet details are REALLY making me long for the warm sunshine during these chilly days of winter...
I already want to swap out my cup of hot chocolate for a cool refreshing glass of Lemonade...

LOVE the idea of a "Lemonade Bar"...

Lemon slices, fresh mint leaves and pink sugar for dipping the rim of your glass...
not only is the presentation beautiful, it looks so YUMMY!

I love how the lemonade takes center stage on the table...
(notice the pink lemonade off to the side too?)

love the "french market" bottle peeking from
behind this refreshing glass of lemonade...
the "candy" lemon wedge is SO adorable!

Lemon & Strawberry Cake Pops with cupcakes in the background...

Stephanie even created little "lemon" tags for the plasticware...
("L" and a lemon slice graphic - SO cute!!)

I LOVE how she displayed a variety of photos from her daughter's 1st year...

a great "make shift" photo booth created by using lemon-clad fabric as the backdrop
provides the perfect photo ops with guests.

PARTY IDEA:
Mail the "personalized" photo of the birthday girl and guest
with the thank you cards you send out after the party...


Stephanie did a beautiful job keeping things sugar-sweet for her daughter's FIRST birthday.
Thanks for sending in the photos...
