‘Seth turns one!’ is a warm and fuzzy woodlands themed party starring the cutest little creature of all, baby Seth!

As Seth’s birthday falls in the middle of December, mother and event planner, Christine was determined to give him a day of his own, free from any interference from the crazy Christmas season.


So new, it’s not even open to the public yet, this earthy Toronto event space acted as the perfect blank slate for Christine’s vision. Natural tones and styling elements transformed the space into a woodland wonderland. The bright colours of fresh fruits and forest-themed treats on the grazing table shone through on a bed of linens, pinecones and tree stumps.


From feature wall to grazing table, lush moss and vines became a motif throughout. Skipping traditional floral arrangements, the blooms featured magnolia tree branches and ferns in both wall installations and table pieces. Guests were immersed into the woodland environment as cascading vines fell from the centrepieces, flowing onto the dining table


What would a first birthday be without a cake smash? A special cake for a special birthday boy, Seth got messy with his own miniature cake that he could eat and destroy to his heart’s content, with all the pictures to prove it!

Seth was the little man of the hour (as if he wasn’t already!) as musician and family friend, Mike, led the party in the ‘Happy Birthday’ song on his guitar. Such a special moment!

For anyone with a celebration coming up, Christine recommends just doing “something that you’re comfortable with. Your thing might be a cosy pyjama party with doughnuts at home – big parties aren’t for everyone and don’t need to be!” We couldn’t agree more.

Happy birthday Seth! Check out the photos from this super-cute event (including those cake smash pics!) below.HOORAY!_Seth's_First_Birthday09HOORAY!_Seth's_First_Birthday07HOORAY!_Seth's_First_Birthday01 HOORAY!_Seth's_First_Birthday03
