Sugar & Spice 1st Birthday - The Inspiration & Venue

I had the honor of planning the most fabulous 1st birthday party for a very special little girl named Cydney! The birthday girl's mom came to me with a dress she found at Bloomingdale's that she wanted her daughter to wear at the party. I used the dress as inspiration to design an unforgettable 1st birthday party for Cydney.

We came up with the theme of "Sugar and Spice" after the very popular poem about little girls. Debra with Luxe Expressions took our color scheme of navy and fuchsia and theme to design the invitation and monogram that we were able to use throughout the party.

The venue for the party was the Clara Meer Dock and Visitor Center at Piedmont Park. It was perfect for the party with its indoor and outdoor spaces. With a little imagination and help from my wonderful team of vendors, we were able to transform the space.

How do you fix up a drab park bathroom? Hot pink fabric draped on the bathroom doors instantly dresses up the space.

Wow, how lovely that turned out!

Wow! really really posh! Talk about sophistication. Even the bathroom doors are adorned with pink cloth. I'm definitely borrowing the ideas. My sister's 18th birthday is coming up and we want to give her a grand party. She loves pink and purple so it'll be perfectly fit for her. It's actually fit for royalty!

Congrats for a job well done!
