Mindy put so much heart and thought into celebrating her daughter’s first birthday; she crafted a special {Pink & Yellow} Polka Dots and Pinwheels Party! My favorite part? How all of these decorations are 100% doable- tassel garlands, punch cupcake toppers, simple flowers and festive details like stripey straws!

PARTY HIGHLIGHTS to look out for:

  • Window pane dessert table backdrop embellished with a pink, yellow & white tissue tassel garland
  • Pink frosted cupcakes with DIY circle punch and pinwheel toppers
  • Pinwheel hair clip, ‘1’ birthday pin, grey polka dot sweater and a happy smile on the birthday girl!

PARTY DETAILS, as told by Mindy…

As I am sure any mom can relate to, I cannot believe how fast time goes! I have a ONE year old… I cannot believe it. My daughter turned one on March 13, 2013, and we had a party for her on March 9, 2013 at our home. She is truly the light of my life, so I knew I wanted to celebrate the day that changed my husband and my lives in ways we could have never imagined. I didn’t want to have too big of a party because I wanted her to be comfortable and enjoy the day.

We decided on a polka dot and pinwheel theme, and invited around 20 of our closest friends and family. I handmade every single detail of party decor, and loved every second of it. The first component was the boxed invitations that each contained two handmade pinwheels, and then the ideas flowed from there. Food signs, cupcake & cake toppers, tissue paper garland, month banner, favor bags, cake smash stool, and a chalkboard all came to life. I could not be happier with the final outcome, but the best part of the day was Reese had a ball! She greeted everyone with a huge smile, and LOVED when everyone sang her happy birthday. I would do anything to make my lil’ girl smile… because when she smiles everything is right in my world! Happy birthday to my Reesey Pie!
