Boho Chic First Birthday (28 photos)
Ava's first birthday was inspired by her nursery of the same theme. It was a bright and cheery color scheme adding in a few exotic elements and a little hippie vibe to the mix.
I created the yarn pom sticks following this tutorial I found online and the garland using this tutorial from Green Wedding Shoes. I thought they added a homespun bohemian feel to the table.
I couldn't find any placecard holders that fit the style so I asked my husband to create the wooden placecard holders which I thought would bring more of a natural feel to the table. Ava's birthday cake was inspired by the birthday invitations and was a red velvet cake with cream cheese frosting on one tier and a lemon coconut cake on the other. I found the lace scallop paper cups and the cupcake liners that had an exotic look to them from Shop Sweet LuLu.
Paper straws, chevron favor bags and wooden cutlery were from Green Munch. Plates and napkins were found at Superstore, a Canadian grocery store a few months before the party.
I found these free invitations that are customizable and thought they would be perfect for the party and asked the designer, Jayme Marie Designs, if she could create some chevron party flags and food labels for the party and she came up with these adorable ones that coordinated perfectly with the invite!
