It is with great pride that I share with you quite possibly the most fabulous birthday party ever!! This past March, Remember This Day planned and coordinated a giraffe-themed 1st birthday party for none other than my son! This was definitely a "labor of love" as I put many hours into the research of supplies, creating of decor and event design...
I try not to blog about my own personal parties, because what I do as a planner/coordinator is in regards to my clients' events rather than my own- but I couldn't pass up this opportunity to share this with you!!
Remember: Remember This Day can help *YOU* plan and coordinate your little one's birthday party, baptism, baby showers, graduation parties and more!! It is soooo nice to be able to relax and enjoy your family's special moments rather than running around getting food on the table, refilling ice trays, ordering supplies and food, setting up the decor and successfully implementing a cohesive theme (and yes, your guests will notice the details!!)
We made the custom linens and most of the stationery (some was purchased from an Etsy seller, as well), the color-coordinating tissue paper poms hung from the ceiling in the main rooms, custom favor tags adorned the orange candy-filled silk organza bags, custom water bottle labels, and "Happy First Birthday" confetti dressed the dessert table along with the smash cake, giraffe shaped cake and cupcakes, which were all courtesy of Carina's sister-in-law (who should totally start her own business!!).
We were lucky enough to have the entirely fabulous and rockstar of a photographer Photography by Laurie come for a few hours to capture all of the details and special moments of this extraordinary First Birthday Party!
I highly recommend hiring a professional photographer for family parties... I know it sounds like an unnecessary expense (can't cousin Joey take pictures instead??), but these pictures will last a lifetime, look GORGEOUS on your mantle or hanging on your wall.... and you won't have to lift a finger to snap any pictures- yet have the best photos to look at afterwards!
Without further adieu...
.... and of COURSE we need one of the "Birthday Boy"!!!
