Arden’s Fuchsia First Birthday Party

The inspiration for this sweet little first birthday party for Arden all began with a fuchsia dress discovered on Gilt. Arden’s mom Reichel Broussard of Copy Cat Chic chose a theme of “tiny” and paired it with a hot pink and white palette to coordinate with the adorable dress. The “tiny” theme inspiration can be found everywhere, from the food to the decor, and it was all captured beautifully by Sandra Fazzino Photography.

The main menu was comprised of mini food items (which just so happened to be the perfect size for babies), and beverages for the adults included mini pink champagne bottles. The wee love continued at the dessert table, which featured mini donuts from Trish’s Mini Donuts, as well as mini cupcakes. And we love that Reichel used hot pink trellis wrapping paper from Target as the table covering. Money-saving and eye-catching!

For the tiny-inspired decor, mini balloons decorated the space, while tiny hot pink paint cans were used as vases for the strawberry plant centerpieces. The play area was stocked with mini pink and white beach balls and hot pink ball pit balls for the party guests to enjoy. Such a cute idea! The birthday girl got to dig into a banana strawberry cake with coconut strawberry frosting from Green Heart Bakery. To see more from this party, stop by the full gallery.
