I am so in love! Jenna Marfori Lang of  Eat Drink Pretty celebrated her daughter Juliet’s first birthday in style with a Sweet {Baby Love} Pink & Gold First Birthday Party! I just can’t get over the simple and sweet gold heart garland, gold “LOVE” letters, {build your own mimosa} adult drink station and so many more lovely DIY details!

PARTY HIGHLIGHTS to look out for:

  • Pink smash cake with adorable plush yarn heart cake toppers
  • Pancake Bar with mini heart stacks, berries, whipped cream & syrup
  • Yarn wreath, chalkboard sign and heart wishes for the birthday girl!
  • Pink heart cookies, macarons, pink rock candy and gold heart topped cupcakes

PARTY DETAILS, as told by Jenna

I came up with the idea to do a “baby love” party, because I wanted a theme that conveyed the sweetness that is my baby girl and my enormous love for her. So “baby love” it became. Also, since her birthday is so close to Valentine’s Day, I thought it was fitting. I chose a pretty color scheme of light pink and sparkly gold and went crazy with different sized paper cut-out hearts.

The “LOVE” table that greeted guests when they arrived.  I asked everyone to write a “love letter” to Juliet using a pink paper heart.  I’ll keep these in her baby box and we can read them when she’s older.

This chalkboard sign was one of my favorite details of the day, made by my sister-in-law, Nikki of Lovely Scribbles.  We featured Juliet’s “loves” on the sign and have since repurposed it as decor in her playroom.

We had a drink table set up in the dining room and above it I strung a ribbon with monthly photos of Juliet.  Each photo had a little pink heart in the upper corner with her age.  We served build-your-own mimoas with pretty pink and white straws each with a mini gold heart.

Juliet’s party was a brunch (my favorite… and Juliet loves it too!). The heart pancakes were adorable and a huge hit with all the little kiddos.


  • Ham and cheese quiche
  • Quiche Lorraine
  • Three cheese quiche
  • Spinach and cheese quiche
  • Roasted red breakfast potatoes
  • Build-your-own-fruit-and-yogurt-parfaits (vanilla yogurt in individual cups with strawberries and granola mix-ins)
  • Donuts
  • Heart-shaped pancakes

We set up a simple and lovely little dessert table.  We displayed Juliet’s smash cake along with cupcakes, macarons, cookies, cake pops and candy.  We also had two rossette-frosting cakes that were displayed on the brunch buffet. I loved the heart backdrop on the dessert table which was very easy to make using cut out hearts and a piece of white foam core.

Juliet’s party was such a wonderful celebration.  Every heart displayed at this party was a HUGE symbol of our love for our sweet one year old girl.

    Wow, this is so inspiring. Everything looks so perfect. Not just the beautiful baby. I mean, even the layered heart-shaped pancakes look great. This must have taken so much time. Did you have help setting it all up?
