Everyday Is A Gift Birthday Dinner

Our little girl turned ONE this March and I wanted to make sure her whole birthday experience was amazing. I know she doesn’t understand what is going on nor will she remember it but I wanted to make it extra special anyways. This year her birthday fell on a Friday and since we weren’t having her party until Sunday I did something extra for her birthday night dinner. 

I love the look and the concept of the Everyday Is A Gift (EDIAG) pattern from The Beaufort Bonnet Company (TBBC) so that is the theme I went with for her birthday dinner. I made her a Life Logo by pulling elements from the pattern like the gifts and flowers. This helped bridge the party theme from her outfit to the invitations and then to the day of party decorations.

Having the Life Logo also helped me to make sure my decorations that didn’t have the EDIAG print were the same colors and all coordinated together. This included the balloons, plates, ribbons, and party hats. 

Paper Goods

I kept the invitations simple with just her Life Logo on the left and the party information on the right with a pink and white stripe frame around the edges. These also had the EDIAG pattern on the back. I also did a little something more by adding the EDIAG pattern envelope liner to the inside of the euro flap envelope. 

I always try to send out thank you notes after every event, big or small. I think it lets the host or guests know how much we truly appreciate them. I did two different note cards, folded with her Life Logo on the front as well as a flat card version. 

Table Top Decoration

Sometimes I struggle with how to make the table top personalized for parties without going overboard on the decor or the budget. I decided on some paper placemats that had the EDIAG pattern. This helped translate the party theme to the table and go throughout the dinner. 

I had the same thought in mind with the custom cups. Sometimes I find it hard to justify printed personalized party cups when the event is small so I really like using round stickers on clear cups to keep the same level of personalization while staying on budget. To give the cups a little extra touch  I created these monogram acrylic stir sticks. I made them in light pink and light blue. 

To finish off the table top decorations I created an acrylic cake topper with the same crest shape and monogram as the Life Logo. I think pulling simple elements from the Life Logo helped keep everything consistent while not overloading the party with the exact Life Logo. I also added coordinating ribbons to the base of the topper to help elevate the cake decorations.

Party Hat (Created by Simply Stitched by Savannah)

I think my most favorite detail from the party was this custom party hat from Simply Stitched by Savannah. It matched her outfit and party perfectly while also being the best keepsake to remember her first birthday dinner.
