Emilia’s first birthday party was a magical day filled with pastels, balloons, sprinkles, love and laughter. It was inspired by all things summer (think ice creams, fruit, flamingoes and sunglasses) and pulled together by event styling company, Ruffles and Bells.
The creative team turned the venue into pastel heaven with sorbet coloured chairs, napkins and handmade paper flowers in soft summery colours. Blow up pool toys filled the indoor venue along party decorations like balloons, honeycomb balls, pineapples painted pink and ice cream cones stuffed with fresh florals.
While the parents mingled, bubs enjoyed a dip in the miniature inflatable ball pit and bigger guests had a go at the giant popsicle piñata. Each child was even gifted a mini pair of sunglasses to wear throughout the summer season – adorable!
‘First birthdays are a day no one forgets, so it’s important to make a magical memory of it!’ says Ally, Stylist at Ruffles and Bells.
We couldn’t agree more! Take a look at this lovable summery celebration below.
