Here’s what Emily said about planning the party– “Ariella is our little winter baby, with her birthday falling in the first week of January. Even though we live in Los Angeles and it’s not technically freezing over here, I still loved the idea of making a ‘winter wonderland’ themed 1st birthday party for her. I’d seen quite a few winter wonderland parties floating around on the web, but I didn’t want recreate those typical winter parties with penguins, polar bears, and igloos. Instead, I had the idea in my head for a rustic/shabby chic winter wonderland party that still had the winter feel, but was a bit more girly & sophisticated. Just like our little girl! I was drawn to lots of burlap, lace, jute twine, and birch, and I mixed those elements with crocheted snowflakes, snow covered manzanita branches, and blush & cream colored roses.”

    Beautiful party. Could you tell me where you had made the chalkboard and where you purchased the sit cover for the high chair?. Also, do you have contact info for Emily K Paperie (link does not work)?

    Wow!! Just wow!! I looked at a lot of your pictures. They are just beautiful! And the themes the parties carry are amazing. I am doing some decorating for halloween… But I don’t think it will be quite as a COMPLETE look as you accomplished!
    Beautiful job! I hope to see more! ;). Jenn
