This gorgeous SHABBY CHIC FIRST BIRTHDAY PARTY was submitted by Natalie Zakhem of Events by Nat.
What a beautiful party! I absolutely love all of the darling floral designs used throughout it. I also love how warm and charming it feels; it’s absolutely perfect. This party has SO MANY really cute ideas that you could use for a baby blessing/christening or tea party as well as a birthday party.
The Shabby Chic party ideas and elements that I like best from this beautiful first birthday celebration are:
- The beautiful floral centerpieces surrounded by tea lights
- The cute floral bunting used in the cupcakes, cake pops, and macarons
- The beautiful canopy with white sheer curtains hung over it at the dessert table
- The cute floral pattern used on the serving trays, cake platters, and wooden spoons
- The darling lace ribbon tassel garland
- The darling desserts
- and MORE!
This is what Natalie said about planning/styling the party- “I styled this shabby chic affair for a gorgeous one year old girl, Emma. Emma’s mum came to me with an inspiration board which consisted of the blue floral shabby chic print and buntings.
She wanted me to style the whole event based on these ideas. The colours she chose were blue, pink and a splash of red.
The dessert table had bunting and floral inspired cake, cupcakes and cookies, hand painted floral Macarons and cake pops and pink and blue pannacotta with custom designed spoons.
A canopy was draped over the dessert table with a bunting hanging on the front of the table.
Personalised chocolates were also included for the guests to take home.
We also set up a gorgeous drinks and candy station for the guests. The drinks dispenser featured cranberry, lychee, strawberry and rose juice. All embellishments on jars were custom designed to match the theme.
The centrepieces also had custom designed petit buntings which wrapped around the vase that the flowers were in and had three tea lights surrounding the vase”.
Overall, the event was so dreamy”.
