CLICK TO SHOP STRAWBERRY TIME CAPSULE POSTERS The thing that’s surprised me most about being a parent is learning just how many people love your children before they’re even born. I used the same white floral picture frame that I used for the milestone poster and added stationery and pens for my guests to write a letter. Round Wooden Baskets : I filled these 75% of the way with paper towels and then added fresh strawberries to the top.
My sister-in-law graciously made our cake and cookies, and the remainder of the decorations were extremely affordable finds from Amazon and Walmart.
Your child will have the best time!Once we settled on strawberry “berry first birthday” theme, I couldn’t resist finding cute invitations. I’m SUCH a sucker for stationery, but it didn’t make sense to spend an arm and a leg on invitations only being sent to a few people.
This adorable watercolor strawberry design is also available in matching stationery thank you favor tags , and enclosure cards if you’re interested. The finishing touches were this pretty gingham first birthday milestone poster DIY template from Etsy ), a cute blue gingham table runner , and a super fun pink and white balloon garland If you’ve always wanted to make a balloon garland but have been intimidated by either the cost of having one professionally made or the technique involved with making one yourself, I shared exactly how to make DIY balloon garlands in this post . You honestly would not believe how easy it is to create fun balloon arches at home, and you can pick up the kits for a STEAL! I used a pink and white balloon garland kit that was literally under $15 for this party, and it took less than an hour to blow up the balloons, assemble the garland, and hang it up on the wall!While Luna was the star of the show at the birthday party, this gorgeous strawberry picnic basket cake from Be Still Bakery was definitely a close second.
You guys know we LOVE Be Still Bakery (previously known as Unique and Chic Creations) and always book her far in advance whenever we’re having a party. You definitely need to check out her Instagram to see all of her amazing creations, but I’m partial to the adorable cakes and cookies she made for Summer’s Sophie La Girafe first birthday party and Peppa Pig second birthday party Her custom cakes and cookies are unparalleled in design, quality, and taste, and her attention to small details and customer service is IMPECCABLE.
Seriously, if you are in the extended Central Florida area and want the best custom cakes and cookies, Megan is your gal! Be Still Bakery also made us these GORGEOUS custom cookies for Luna’s strawberry-themed first birthday party, and they were absolutely perfect and so tasty! These adorable strawberry-themed cookies looked so cute on our dessert table, and they can also double as party favors for your guests to take home!
If you live in Ocala or the central Florida area, I couldn’t recommend Be Still Bakery more highly for custom cookies and cakes.
I previously showcased her amazing cake pop designs in my Lilly Pulitzer Baby Shower post here, and once again, I was blown away by her talent! I highly recommend Littlebits if you’re looking for custom cake pops in Ocala or central Florida!Luna’s first year went by so quickly, and I really wanted to document some of her milestones from the past twelve months.
We literally always have a few bags in our pantry because it tastes great, melts easily, and stays melted for a long time for easy dipping!In addition to sharing our extra cookies, we created cute mini picnic basket favors for all of Luna’s guests. These small wooden baskets were absolutely perfect, and they double as a great toy for babies and toddlers. They would also be darling for flower girls in a wedding.I originally wanted to line the baskets with these pink gingham cloth napkins , but unfortunately, they were just too big. I ended up cutting a few of these pink gingham chair bow sashes into small rectangles, and they were the perfect liners! I love wearing this dress with one of the gorgeous skinny belts from this pack , and these lightweight gold espadrille wedges are my absolute favorite shoe buy of the year.
