This year has been all about first birthday parties for me so far!  I've been crazy busy with party after party, but it's been so much fun working on new party themes and cute new designs.

Last weekend I styled this Bright and Fun First Birthday Party for Josh, an adorable little blue eyed munchkin.  A few years ago I worked with Josh's mommy, Lisa to create a pretty all pink party for his sister Emily's first birthday.  Emily's party was fabulous, lots of cute details,  and Lisa wanted to go all-out for Josh's birthday as well.  She told me she envisioned bright colors, patterns and baby elephants.  We chose a color scheme of aqua and turquoise blues, sunshine yellow and lime green.

We set-up the dessert table in the breakfast room to take advantage of the great lighting, lots and lots of big windows.  I wanted the colors to really pop so I kept the table cover a basic white with just a chevron aqua blue table runner down the middle.  Tissue poms and big balloons with tassel garland made a perfect backdrop.
