Sunflower and Pumpkin 1st Birthday!

Josslyn was born the week before Halloween and her older sister called her “Sunny Girl” while I was pregnant with her.  So it only made since to make her 1st birthday party filled with sunflowers and a festive fall theme!   

We made it a costume party and I created photo backdrop outside below the fall leaves.  I created the pallet backdrop from an inspiration found on Pinterest:  I’ve used this design for several events as well as yard décor.  Wooden crates were filled with a variety of pumpkins, seasonal flower arrangements within some  pumpkins and also in re-purposed tin cans wrapped with fabric.  


The fabric patterns are also seen in the garlands throughout the event.  The birthday girl’s darling highchair is a thrift store snag for $10!  It just needed a little color and décor.  I coordinated with an Etsy seller to create Josslyn’s onesie to match the same fabric that I was using in the party:  My mom sewed her tulle skirt and I added the tulle fluff on the shoulders to complete the outfit.


  For the table backdrop, I painted on burlap and added tissue sunflowers made from a Martha Stewart kit.  The sunflower smash cake was made by a local Safeway, but for guests we served a variety of homemade seasonal pies- which everyone agreed was fabulous in lieu of cake!  I did make a few sunflower cupcakes for kiddos with Oreos as centers. 

The little guests also had a crafting corner and festive take home bags with loot such as: fall stickers, necklace kits, colored sunflower seeds and planting seeds.  All ages enjoyed posing for the photo booth and all of the festive decor!
