Awe, I LOVE to look back at my little one’s milestones in life! Isn’t that what parties are all about?! Celebrating the big and small and having a “mark” to remember them by. Plus, it is a great way to gather family and friends to laugh, eat, and love.
Today I am sharing the Peaches and Cream | Sweet as a Peach 1st Birthday Party that I styled for my little peach. Her birthday is in the summer so it was a perfect time for celebrating the ripening, sweet, juicy fruit on the tree and my sweet, juicy girl too! I could just eat her!!
I can’t nail down my favorites from this celebration, but some you should look out for when scrolling through the pics include the following:
- Peach Cookies
- 1st Year Picture Display Frame
- Peach Crate Installations
- Guest Favors
- Delicious Minimalistic Cake
- Farm Fresh Peach Stand
- Peach Candies
- Perfect 1st Birthday Smash Cake
Just like I have always said, I would love to invite ALL of you to every party I style! Too bad we don’t have unlimited time off from work and unlimited frequent flyer miles! Since I can’t invite all of my Kara’s Party Ideas family, I will share this joyous day with you here. So, grab a drink and find somewhere comfortable to sit, then come on into the party! While you do that, let’s take a moment to talk about the vendors I used. These aren’t paid or sponsored vendors….just things I loved and wanted to use.

Peaches and Cream | Sweet as a Peach 1st Birthday Party
Custom sweet as a peach happy birthday chalk letter sign by my sister-in-law, Let’s Letter This! I would highly recommend her! She does amazing work and can customize anything for you!
I cut peach gingham fabric into squares as an underlayment for the table centerpieces. We then painted mason jars white to use as flower vases. The crates are from Ikea and are adorned with a vintage peach label (that I glued on).
Main Dessert Table
Little Cake & Dessert Shop (Lehi, Utah) made the most beautiful peach cake and peach cupcakes that everyone devoured!
I purchased these darling miniature peach pies from Walmart and tied a mini fork onto the boxes with fabric and ribbon.
This darling balloon garland was a sinch to DIY! I used twine, peach balloons and faux leaves.
My dear friend Kelli made the fresh peaches crate for the party! Isn’t it darling?!
I used the same concept for the peach straws as I did for the peach garland.
Let’s Letter This did an incredible job at all the calligraphy and chalk writing!
My FUJIFILM Instax photo printer is my favorite. I printed various photos from Kamryn’s first year and hung them with clothes pins and twine on a cute vintage ladder.
My sweet friend, Lolita’s Craft painted custom peach tags for her party!
Second Dessert Table
I covered individual canned peach jars with gingham fabric and a custom tag.
Kamry’s monthly milestone photos will always hold a special place in my heart. Watching her grow through the year pulled at my heartstrings!
Party Take Home Favors
I recreated a farmers market peach stand using baskets. Guests filled paper bags with fresh peaches at the end of the party to take home.
This heirloom Rocking Horse made me gasp when I found it online. I just had to get it for her. She LOVED it.
