{Real Party} Aqua and Orange Chevron Giraffe First Birthday Party

We recently had the pleasure of working with Marie on designing a set in chevron and polka dots for her little girl Lauren’s 1st birthday party. Lauren is a big fan of her Vulli Sophie La Giraffe, so that had to be in there as well! We supplied a few items to her and she was able to use them all in many different ways to achieve a truly custom look to her party. Talk about a crafty mamma! This party was originally posted at my good friend Lili’s blog at swanky::chic::fete…you can go there to see the complete set of pictures from this stunner of an event.


I love how she used the custom circles to personalize her cups, party hats and boxes, and even used them for cupcake toppers, too! And I’m also a huge fan of all the coordinating fabric she was able to find–she used for the fun chevron prints! Be sure to see the rest of the photos at swanky::chic::fete.

I have always loved the chevron theme, especially for children's parties. Good choice of colors too.
