My daughter has been an absolute angel since she arrived a year ago so this was my immediate choice for the theme of her first birthday party!
I initially thought this would be a common theme as all parents see their kids as angels but when I went searching I found only one party (on this website!) as inspiration and I did take a lot of tips from it! In the end, my theme ended up being more 'angel wings' than an actual angel figurine. I also reisted the urge to incorporate pink into the colour scheme and insisted instead that everything was white or as close to white as possible - off-white / cream / beige / sand. I wanted it to be very tasteful and classic and clean. I made the huge angel wings out of coffee filters (idea from this website!) and used them to surround a photo of our daughter above the food table. I also used them on a welcome board I made out of an old frame and I made my own bubble mix in reusable jars which I twinned with a white pipe cleaner wand which was meant to look like a halo! I incorporated feathers into my table in several ways - on the place cards, wrapped round the champagne glasses, fixing the straws to my ginger ale bottles and as a tie for the favour bags. An angel party for my little angel :)
