For my daughters 1st birthday I was inspired by classic fairy tales and coined the party a "once upon a time" theme. To stay true to the concept I rented space in a local historic library, which has beautiful architectural details. All the food and treats were all based on a specific fairy tale, such as Cinderella's glass slipper cookies and The Little Mermaid's sea shell pasta salad. The decor focused on a sweet table along with simplistic floral arrangements atop customized hardcover books. Being a graphic designer, I added numerous details such as signage, favor stickers, cupcake flags, a party hat and a customized Madlibs guestbook.
