Ashley's Pink and Green Polka Dot Cupcake 1st Birthday (Lots of Photos!)


Ashley is the mommy to this little sweetie...and she planned the cutest pink and green 1st birthday party for her this month. Her theme was pink, green, polka dots and cupcakes (can't go wrong with that!).


Ashley framed her dessert table with bunches lime green and pink polka dot balloons that added a big punch of color so her guests could "see her theme" right away:



This custom-made ribbon topiary added more cute-ness to her table. Ashley made it herself (maybe she used our ribbon topiary tutorial?) and I just love how it turned out. The hot pink feathers are my favorite part!


I love this photo of her dining room party set-up. She used balloons, tissue poms and a cute "Happy 1st Birthday Elli" banner around the dessert table. Don't you love her pink with lime polka dot fabric tablecover too?


This is a must-have for first birthday parties, a photo banner with one photo for each of her 12 months. Ashley went over-the-top and made each banner card into the shape of a cupcake (way to stick to your theme, girl!).


A high-chair tutu skirt? Oh yes, she did. And it could not be cuter! So creative - I bet your guests went crazy for your high chair tutu!




One giant cupcake for Ellie (check). Lots of pink and green cupcakes for our guests (check). Pink and green napkins, plates and lanterns to make this corner of the kitchen look pretty...check!



Last, but not least Ashley went for it and created her own balloon wreath in her party colors to welcome her guests. i just love it! (P.S. - I want that front door.)


Ashley, thank you again for sharing Elli's big 1st birthday party photos with all of us. Your creativity will certainly spark an idea in a fellow mom's head that she will use at her next party. So, thank you!

Leave a comment or question below for Ashley and I'm sure she'd be happy to respond. :)
