1st Birthday Garden Party Details:

This is what Brandi said about styling the party- “Our little girl turned one this month and I still can’t believe it! It feels like yesterday I was holding her for the first time in my arms! I decided to do a garden party theme for her First Birthday! Ever since Maddie was a baby she would always smile and laugh whenever she saw a flower, so I thought it was fitting!

Party Location and Set-Up

Madelyn’s garden party was held at Fox Run Park in a large pavilion. I made a lot of the decorations by hand (late at night when the kids were asleep) and found the rest on etsy or small shops! I have gotten a lot of questions about where her decorations are from so I will try to link all of the shops I got them from. If I miss something feel free to message me!

Cake, Signs, and Decor

The cake was made by my sister-in-law’s mom, Linda. She did such an amazing job! I would highly recommend her if you are in the Colorado area! The background floral garland I made by hand. I got all the supplies at Hobby Lobby (one of my favorite stores for parties!). To make the garland I bought clear wire, fake flowers, a needle and some crimp beads. I threaded each of the flowers through the wire and put a crimp bead at the end of each flower. I did a total of six strings. The “Maddie is One” sign is made by Pearl and Jane! She makes gorgeous signs! For the table the beautiful felt flower garland is fro m Honey Crown! The flower holder and copper garden pitcher I got at Hobby Lobby on sale.

More Flowery Details

The plates and napkins I got off of Amazon! It wasn’t the first place I looked, but they have such cute supplies for parties on there! I got Madelyn’s milestone poster from MapleAM on etsy and printed off the file at my local Office Max store.

My husband is really talented in the wood-working department, so he made a potting bench out of cedar based on Ana White’s design to place all the potted favors on! I had a small table set up for the kids to decorate their potted plants with a variety of foam stickers for the craft. They loved it! There was also a bean bag toss and playground near by to run off all the sugar!

Centerpieces and Photography

For the centerpieces I used mason jars and hot glued lace bows around them and placed roses inside. The smash cake topper is by Fancy Free Finery! Madelyn’s floral dress is by Kinder Kouture and her flower headband is by Kiki & Bee Handmade. She also wore a party hat from Little Blue Olive. My mom’s sweet friend wanted to make Maddie a milestone picture banner and it turned out precious. I will always treasure it! All photography is done by my dear friend Rachel Wright! She is amazing!

Madelyn’s birthday was so fun to plan! She was surrounded by sweet family and friends that we are so thankful for! Maddie has brought us more joy than she will ever know and has captivated the hearts of many! She is the funniest little girl you will ever meet with the warmest smile! We are so blessed! Happy first birthday Sunshine! We love you more than you will ever know!”
