real parties | Simply Teal & Red First Birthday Party - Candice Boekweg

I'm in need of simplicity around here...
So when I received these party photos from a reader named Candice...
I knew TODAY would be the perfect day to share this simply fabulous REAL PARTY!

Party girl: Candice
Celebration Type: First Birthday
Color Palette: Teal & Red

As a lover of the ever-popular teal & red color combination...
as well as lover of simple, clean designs...
I couldn't help but adore the simple diy's Candice created to help personalize Greyson's 1st birthday party
• mini cake bunting
• cupcake toppers
• and a simple bunting backdrop.

They add to the simple charm of the simple homemade desserts Candice baked
and then displayed on a simply gorgeous piece of furniture.

This fabulous mom proves you can host a "simply" adorable party...
all on a very simple budget!!!

The birthday boy is SIMPLY adorable too...is he not!!!???
Thanks for sharing your creative talents with us Candice...
I know there will also be LOTS of people appreciative of you keeping it simple!!

In Candice's own words...

I went with an aqua/teal and red theme, complete with paper staws, bunting (the mini cake bunting freebie from the TomKat site), oreo truffles, chocolate fudge cupcakes, and a rasberry filled white cake.  It was really simple and shows that you can still throw a cute little party on a budget. Most of the party decor I made, such as the accordian folded rosette cupcake toppers, bunting over the buffet, oreo truffle pops, cupcakes, milk glasses, etc. I used my own version of the mini cake bunting freebie on the TomKat site.  I also purchased the red and white paper straws and bakers twine from ebay seller twocrazyladies.




I hope this simple inspiration helps to kick start your weekend...
a reminder to all of us to keep things simple and that often less is more!!!
Hugs!!

Hi! Just featured this cake banner as one of my favorites on my blog! It's adorable and I love the color scheme for this party!

Hello, I was wondering if you could post on here where the stamps were purchased for the adorable cake banner on this cake. I have been looking for these stamps all over the place and can't find them anywhere! Thanks so much,

Jaime

Hi Jaime...its' been a busy Summer so I apologize for not responding sooner to your question regarding the cake bunting. The banner was actually a FREE printable from The TomKat Studio. (see the link in the post). If you can't find it for any reason, let me know and I'll contact Kim personally for you.
