It's Little Miss A's birthday today! And boy
has she have we been planning and dreaming of this day for months. Gosh, it is so sweet to see such excitement over a birthday. The celebration really began this past week. Little Miss A is practically an expert at blowing out candles as we have been telling the last few restaurants we have been to that it was her birthday. So, of course all desserts came with a candle! Even though her party isn't today I want to share with you a little about her theme and decor. Originally, I wanted to plan for a Hollywood Regency theme. But how do you explain this theme to a 6 year old? So, I translated the theme to a SWAN party! I approached my sweet friend Andrea from The Glam Pad, to help me identify the items that would make this party sparkle. She was so sweet and sent me a list of fabulous ideas. Like for example, gathering inspiration from this Lilly Pulitzer luncheon she suggested I could turn these Lilly Pulitzer shower curtains into tablecloths. I mean, she is brilliant!
The swan float is the main attraction. It has been living in our pool all summer already and I have to tell you it is such a big hit with the kids. I think it has to do with its huge size. Also, we already have the swan pinata which is just stunning and I think we all might cry when she brakes.
I found most of my party supplies at my favorite party supply store Via Blossom. The gold and white plates are my favorite. I had to include some flamingos straws to add that pop of pink in the tablescape. And they will just look so cute in the mason jars filled with pink lemonade.
I hope to share photos of the party next week. So, stay tuned. Have a wonderful Monday.
