celebrate: shabby chic birthday fun

Tuesday, October 15, 2013

Last month, I styled a special little lady's Korean first birthday party. This was such a fun party to work on - the mom wanted a shabby chic soiree and really let me have creative control. A similar banner seen on Pinterest started it all ... and so, I created a customized party.

As part of the festivities, I crafted these candy-filled party favors with different printed paper and a cute faux chalkboard thank you emblem!

As part of the first birthday or Dol, the Toljabee is the main celebration. Skylar was given seven different objects to choose from (a microphone, paint set, stethoscope, money, golf ball, gavel and pencil) to predict her future. I purchased this old window from a store in Sonoma and created a chalkboard to list the potential careers. Guests were asked to write their name on the ticket and invited to vote for whichever object Skylar might choose. 

She chose the microphone (hoping an introduction to Justin Bieber in the future).

For Easter, I created this little gem and it really got the mom's attention. Not really sure what made her decide on letting me make cakes for people to actually eat, but it was a challenge and I had fun frosting on a rainy Saturday afternoon. More so, I had fun creating these shabby chic cake toppers! (Now available on Etsy!) 

And every first birthday party smash cake must have a 'o-n-e' highchair sign! It's my first! (And also available on Etsy!)

This future little musician had a wonderful time and thank you to my new friends for a great opportunity to share in this special day!
