Kara's Party Ideas Pink Elephant 1st Birthday Party | Kara's Party Ideas

Peanuts and pink elephants- it can’t get much cuter than this! My next feature goes to this darling PINK ELEPHANT 1ST BIRTHDAY PARTY submitted by Events by Kate. The first thing that stuck out to me was the fun tissue pom backdrop that Kate created with tissue pom flowers. Everything else is just as cute, too!

Party details at bottom of post…

Here is what Katie had to say about the party-

“I made this party as adorable as the little girl it was hosted for! Little miss Eleanor; Sweet little “Ellie” has a wonderful mother who informed me that she would be wanting a pink and grey Elephant themed party! After we decided on an invitation to fit the occasion I started referring to this birthday theme as the “Pink and Grey Modern Ellie-phant Party”.

She had everything a little one year old could want. A sweets buffet filled with Strawberry Shortcake Jellybeans, Yogurt covered peanuts, as well as Pink Swirl Marsh mellows-Yummy! We had a beautiful cake design which was a collaborative effort of myself and created from my wonderful cake vendor “Sweet Spot Cupcakes” along with beautiful pink and grey mini cupcakes! All party printables, and table designs were made by myself: Kate “Events by Kate” as well as the most adorable party favors for the guests to take home “Peanut Favors”! The design and coordination of this event was prepared and designed by “Events by Kate”. I also did animal cracker Chinese takeout box with Ellie’s adorable picture on the front. The Ellie Mason Jars have white + Pink Chocolates, and we even had extra peanuts!

I chose modern pink prints, as well as made an adorable Elephant centerpiece, themed to match the invitations! Photos were made possible by my beautiful sister in law as well as myself; I am still learning how to use a camera! My sister in law is a fantastic local photographer Ashley MacDougall of “Ashley MacDougall Photography.”

    Hi~ I just stumbled across your page as I was searching for 1st birthday ideas for my daughter ELLIE!!! I absolutely love all of these decorations! I was wondering if you might be willing to sell any of the personalized items with the name Ellie on it??? Possibly the name banner or the cupcakes sticks? Love the idea! My Ellie’s birthday is on August 30th and I feel like I am behind on the planning process already. Maybe I can get ahead of the game.

    Very cute, what is the pink behind the sign that at the very top? It looks like some sort of paper, but I can’t make it out.
