Feel free to grab the button and play along! If you or someone you know has attended or planned a fabulous party, shoot me an email and I’d love to feature you in an upcoming Monday!
You may remember my friend, Mindy, from our family photo shoot last fall. I met Mindy through our mutual friend, Christine. Mindy throws some of the CUTEST parties and comes up with the best ideas! Thanks for playing along, friend!
What type of event did you plan/attend and for who?
I’m a planner and creative at heart, soooo the brainstorming started right after Mia’s first birthday ha! Just kidding, you can’t plan a theme too far in advance for kids because you never know what they might be in to by the time their birthdays come around. The actual shopping and crafting started about 2 months in advance. My design was inspired by paper goods from Social Butterfly Ink’s Spa Party. The theme was set by Mia’s love for her stuffed animals, most importantly Daisy!
My go to party sites are Hostess with the Mostess, the Tomkat Studio, Kara’s Party Ideas and Amy Atlas. I bank my ideas on various pinterest boards and mix and match concepts to keep the styling fresh. I kept the décor very simple by incorporating the same elements throughout (pink, grey, stripes, and balloons).
I loved how the invitation and cake designers did an amazing job re-creating Mia’s stuffed animal friends in paper and fondant forms! Mia knew right away who they were which made for a truly one of a kind party.
I’m a party planner, so there wasn’t one! I love love love details and seeing it all come together.

YAY! I’m so glad Mindy shared this party. It is so beautiful! 🙂
It’s all gorgeous, but I esp. love the balloons–they look so classy like that! Thanks for sharing–am planning my daughter’s 1 yr. and may have to steal some of these ideas!
Oh, this is so cute! I love the cake!
