Darling Pink Peonies Picnic Birthday Party


Pink peonies are favorite, so I had to share this adorable picnic birthday party of little Mila I spotted on Pinterest.

How cute are the little gold crowns on each chair, fringe streamers and diy pinata letters spelling out the birthday girl’s name?!

Love the little biodegradable  birch wood plates from eco-gecko topped with kumquats. And check out those gorgeous pink peonies in full bloom.

Donuts instead of cake or cupcakes? Why not.

At the end of the table a pair of drink dispensers from Pottery Barn are placed for guests to serve themselves. So simple.

Our Butterfly Themed Fiesta Party

A few weeks back we celebrated a special event for my daughter. She loves burritos and butterflies so we decided to have a butterfly themed fiesta that included pinatas, dancing and a taco truck. As you may know, I don’t blog or post images of my kids, but wanted to share some of the decorations. The custom multi-colored butterfly table runner was the first item selected and set the lively tone for the event. The bright pink peonies, vibrant Mexican pottery and handmade butterfly garland hanging from the chandelier were my favorite decorations.

The pink butterfly party invite was purchased at Minted.

Loved these individual pinata for the kids! Each child pulls the ribbon and goodies drop out. They would be a fun DIY project, but I purchased them on Etsy.

Design Trend: Hot Air Balloons

Although I have never taken a ride in a hot air balloon, I have always been fascinated by them. Perhaps it’s because there is something a little old fashioned, adventurous and romantic about these massive balloons that intrigues me. In the past year, I have also noticed more and more hot air balloons popping up in home décor like this whimsical Schumacher wallpaper, Balloons. For more, see my round-up of home décor featuring hot air balloons in this ideabook on Houzz.
And how darling is the hot air balloon theme for little one’s birthday? This one I love and was featured on Amy Atlas’ blog? The festive table in pastel pinks and purple, with touches of yellow was created by Louisa and Melissa of Little Big Company in Australia.  The hot air balloon cake by 2 Sisters Cakes is simply amazing and the sweet printables were by Ham and Pea Paperie. The photography was by Casamento Photography.
So cute, don’t you think?
