Ties or Tutus Gender Reveal!












Laila's Twinkle Twinkle Little Star First Birthday


My daughter loves the song Twinkle Twinkle Little Star and I have been singing her to sleep with this song since she was a newborn. I knew this would be a fun and beautiful theme for her birthday. I designed a twinkle, twinkle party using gold, light pink, hot pink, and aqua. I scoured sites like etsy and Pinterest for months looking for the perfect decorations. The result was a sparkly and beautiful party, perfect for my little girl. I did a bunch of DIY projects such as wands, a crepe paper backdrop, and hand punched confetti for balloons and the tables, and custom centerpieces.

 I wanted the ceiling to be reminiscent of a night sky so I hung star gold glitter star garlands from the ceiling of my great rooms. 


On the fireplace I had handmade wands in gold glitter bubble vases. A starry chalkboard sign went over the fireplace and a gold glitter twinkle banner hung from the mantle.





I made my own centerpieces using roses and gold planters with gold glitter wands. I used pink crinkled taffeta linens and gold sequin runners. 


Monthly baby pictures of Laila were displayed on bookcases in frames that had gold glitter die cut months
 Hand decorated favor bags filled with star themed cookies, went on another bookcase. 



We served brunch food such as french toast, mac and cheese, fritatas and bagels. My talented friend, Betsy, made star shaped sandwiches, delicious mini muffins, fruit wands and beautiful star themes cupcakes.
