Pure perfection, right? Well, our only wish is that this were an actual shower. Turns out this oh-so-creative Momma created all these marvelous details for her sons first birthday party (We know -- a birthday party)! Our heads are still spinning. But, honestly, if we hadn't shared our dirty little secret with you would you have even noticed? We know we were too busy falling into love and taking notes to even care. Which brings us to Christi's sweet note we include below ...
From Christi... The color scheme came from our Christmas tree and other seasonal decor around the house...gold, copper & ivory.
We often call Conrad, "C", so when we were designing the invitation, I wanted to use the initial instead of his full monogram. The "C" was present throughout many party elements. I was very tempted to have my favorite florist make a "C" wreath that matched the exact font, but instead of paying $300, I decided to give it a shot myself. It turned out okay ... I [also] set out gift centerpieces instead of using vases because inevitably, they would be knocked down by one of the little ones [at the party] (probably my
2 year old!).
Jingle bell wreath ornaments served as favors which helped tie in the theme of the party.
We had a make-your-own parfait station along with other breakfast goodies.
