A few weeks ago, I had a Saturday filled with kids birthday parties (three to be exact!). One of these celebrations was for Nora, my friend Danielle’s adorable daughter. Danielle owns Paper Therapy Shop, an Etsy store with the best invitations, cards, birth announcements (see Nora’s here), etc. Given Danielle’s creativity, I knew that the party was going to be perfect – and it was. A party filled with navy, gold and rose pink gold confetti, I was seriously lusting over every single detail. The invitation and ‘stats’ poster (made by Danielle) were gorgeous, as was the cake and ‘one’ script letter (from BHLDN) (although Nora was quite the hesitant eater!).
And then there was that cone backdrop. Let’s talk about that. Because Danielle handmade it (mom of the year award!). I’m pretty sure she could now sell it for $250, because it is so labor intensive. She got the tutorial from Noon Day Collection, and she obviously has more patience than I do! It did turn out great in the background of photos.
Danielle also designed a sign next to gold pipe cleaners that prompted guests to make their own ‘party gear.’ The males definitely won the award for most creativity (slightly shocking – no offense boys!)! You’ll see Nora’s gold pipe cleaner crown in the last set of photos – she was princess for the day!
I cannot believe that Nora is now almost 13 months and that Isla is almost 10. It looks like I need to get serious about planning her birthday party! I’m definitely taking notes from Nora’s colorful confetti celebration, as we had such a good time.
