R's Pink & Gold First Birthday Party

8.17.2016


On August 6th we celebrated Miss R turning one! As I mentioned in a previous post, I did not originally have a theme planned. I walked around Hobby Lobby grabbing things I thought were cute, and when I came home I realized it was mainly pink and gold stuff. I searched Pinterest for "pink and gold first birthday" and realized that is a theme! I did Pinterest before Pinterest was cool, y'all.

My mom, brother, and sister-in-law came up a day early and helped me set up for the party, and I absolutely love how it turned out! I borrowed some decorations from a friend, made some stuff myself, and used things I already had around the house, so in total I spent maybe $40 on party decorations, which is pretty good!

First, I will share my inspiration from my one-year birthday Pinterest board, and then I'll share some pictures of how my inspiration came to life at the party!
1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5


I love how it all turned out. I feel like everything came to life just how I envisioned it, and it was cute and fun but not involved enough that I felt like there were a crazy amount of decorations to set up. I'm excited to share more about R's party, including cake eating pictures and maybe a video soon! If you have any questions about how I put anything together, feel free to let me know in the comments or shoot me an email.

    1. Ha! Thanks so much :) That cake is funny... I intended for it to be decorated all down the side but it started falling down and was a hot mess so I flattened it out and just did the top. I thought it turned out okay!

  17. Wow! You did a fantastic job -- this looks like a professional did it! It looks like tons of fun, too. I especially love the chart you made with all of R's milestones. You rock! Pink and gold were our wedding colors so I am also a bit biased that that is a great theme.

  21. I read your blog but never commented, always wondered about your daughter's name, I guessed it was Rachel, but thought to let you know her name is on the one photo with the high-chair, just it case you want to remove that photo...

    1. Thank you :) I did see that later but figured it's been a year. I'll go ahead and throw a bone out for all the hard core R fans. Lol! Thanks for reading and for the comment!

  25. That tissue paper covered 1 is so cute, I'm going to have to remember that for future use. Party looked good and R looked happy, so what more can you ask for?

  26. What a sweet party! And I love the color scheme. Can't go wrong with gold AND glitter. :)

  27. I love your pink and gold theme!!!! Everything turned out so well!!!!! Your mantel, with all of the different pictures of her (and that DIY R that you didn't give up on) is my favorite thing. I love the idea of doing that and if I'm honest...It would probably stay up there for a good 6 months if I was keeping your house! ;)

    Happy Birthday to her and Happy BIRTH-Day to you too!!!! What a year it has been. :)

  28. Everything is so lovely! The theme is perfect! I can't believe it's been a whole year...so I can ONLY imagine how you must feel. Time seems to fly these days!!

  29. Wow! You did an awesome job on the decorations! Love the pink and gold, and the frosting on that cake looks *so* good! It's a wonder everyone resisted the urge to sample it before photos were taken (I don't see any fingerprints)! Happy birthday to R!
