What better to celebrate a milestone than with a party? We had the pleasure of decorating an adorable baby boy’s first birthday party in Mississauga. The theme colours were green, blue and orange. We’ll let the pictures speak for themselves.
Included in the decor were monthly pictures of the birthday boy, a frame placed at each table, alongside a baby-theme quote and a colourful centerpiece. We used blue table cloths for guest tables, and green table cloths for the food tables and gift table. This really helped to colour the room. Alongside colourful balloons, we used paper fans and paper tassels to decorate the wall behind the food tables. Our centerpieces are made up of glass vases filled with plastic balls and fairy lights. We loved how they turned out – playful yet elegant.
We loved the idea of including positive quotes for baby, and using 3″ by 3″ frames, we created these quotes and placed them next to the centerpieces. And no birthday party is complete without balloon bouquets! We used trendy gold foil balloons and picked out these number one balloons which we paired with other balloons of the same colours.
At each place, we placed a “Happy Birthday” napkin to add more decor to the tables, as well as a “prayer” sheet that guests can use to fill out and can be stored for the future when the birthday boy can read them. For fun, we added glow sticks that were used when lights dimmed and music was playing. And in the end, we provided favours to guests which included candy and chocolate inside, with the tag commemorating the event with the birthday boy’s name in English and Arabic, and his birth date.
The cake of this event was a collaboration from two other local entrepreneurs who agreed to share their talents with this event. The cake was done by Madarati Sweets in Mississauga, and the cake topper was done by Lettered It from Ottawa.
We really enjoyed playing with this colour pallet. It was so refreshing and freeing not to use specific cartoon characters. Looking forward to our next planning adventure already!
