Heart Themed First Birthday (Dohl) Part 1 (28 photos)
We chose our venue because of the wall to ceiling windows that
showcased the stunning views of the NYC skyline. Unfortunately, the
weather that day was horrendous with hail and clouds but thankfully
the pictures still came out beautifully despite not being able to see
the skyline at all by the fog! Since I didn't have the budget to hire
a planner, I wanted the theme to be simple - girly yet elegant.
Guests were welcomed with mimosas which had paper straw flags guiding
them to their respective table numbers. Tables were simply decorated
with mason jars, baby's breath & pink rose petals. The banner that
hung above the candy/dessert table was a collage of my daughter's
growth each month in the same chair. Special details to look out for
are the heart charm raffle tickets, Hello Kitty Dragon tower &
cookies, pink ruffle cakes, kids' personalized goodie bags, Korean
rice cake favors, and the clear balloon backdrop.
The overloaded candy bar was filled with personalized M&Ms, pink rock
candy, strawberry pocky sticks, vanilla & salted caramel macarons,
pink grapefruit gummies, pineapple gummy bears, coconut jelly bellys,
yogurt covered pretzels, white chocolate covered oreos w/fondant
hearts, pink ombre heart cookies pops, & Hello Kitty dragon cookies.
