AVA NOELLE’S 1ST BIRTHDAY // JAN 2 2014

Happy New Year! Our sweet mooshberry turned 1 on December 26th (poor girl- doomed to a lifetime of Christmas-themed birthday parties!). I decided to throw her a mini-brunch-bash to mark the occasion. I handed the camera off to my photographer friend, Tali, knowing she would masterfully capture all the small details. Enjoy!

That cute crown was inspired by one I had seen on Etsy a few weeks back. Super simple sewing DIY project that ended up being my favorite detail of the whole party!

I had extra special help from a few friends and my sister to put the party all together. We made a little vanilla sheet cake with homemade cream cheese frosting topped with berries for her own personal cake. We were hoping she would dive in, but apparently she is more of a doughnut girl.

We covered our buffet with fresh apple cider doughnuts, fresh orange juice, and egg nog (’tis the season) in little personalized milk cartons. For a pop of color, I did a few last minute flower arrangements with some flowers I found at Trader Joe’s.Finally, we covered our dining table in craft paper and created a yogurt parfait bar, mimosa bar, bagels & cream cheese area, and various other brunch-y snacks for people to enjoy as they hung out and celebrated with us. The awesome thing about covering your table with craft paper is that you can write directly on it!
Hope this simple brunch party get’s your inspiration juices flowing for your next get together!
