Madison and Mikayla’s First Birthday Party had a vintage baby bird/ Garden party theme. It was the beginning of Spring, which is perfect for the garden party and baby birds and we decided to get a big white tent for the backyard. We loved the baby bird idea but didn’t want the party to look like a baby shower since that is a common theme for baby showers. We stayed away from any nests and eggs which associate more with being born.
We started off with wanting the party to be light pink and white but as we bought the decorations, we noticed there were some great teal colors we could incorporate as well. From there we just looked for bird cages, bird houses and flowers. Etsy was a great place to look for unique items to really enhance the party. The cake table was where everything started. I wanted the cake to be the show piece and everything play off of that.
[quote]We wanted the children to have some fun activities as well. We brought in a bounce house, a puppet show, bubble wands, and a paint your own birdhouse station. We bought small smocks for the children to wear while they painted. The children also loved the strawberry milk! The twins had a great time and loved the puppet show![/quote]
