Caleigh’s Pink and Orange Lollipop Birthday!

This weekend we hosted my daughter’s first birthday party. It was so much fun to plan all of the decorations and get everything ready for the big day. I tried to make all of the decorations myself to save on money…buuuuut, let’s be honest. The cost gets pretty out of control super fast, even with 100% trying to be budget conscious!!

She is too young to be “into” anything, so we decided to go with colors rather than a theme…although I did work in the concept of lollipops a bit!

The colors for her party were pink and orange (as you will see) and it looked so fun and festive…and totally girly!

I’ll let the pictures do most of the talking today…

wrapping paper as a table runner, chinese lanterns as centerpiece and BALLOONS (my favorite, and the easiest, decorations!)

I made a quiz with questions about the birthday girl…lift the flap to find the answer!

She had a blast the whole day!

It was an incredible day filled with great friends. I can’t believe my baby girl is over a year old now!

What a year it has been!

  7. Just found this post through Pinterest and I have to say, what a great job you did on her party! I might be a little biased since my favorite color combo is pink and orange. 🙂 In fact, they were my wedding colors! Anyway, love every detail of this Birthday.. Off to check out the rest of your blog. 🙂

  8. Gorgeous! Lots of great ideas. Thanks for posting:)

  9. When I initially commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now each time a comment is
    added I get several e-mails with the same comment.

    Is there any way you can remove people from that service?

    Thank you!

      I have no idea! I am sorry! Where did you comment? Maybe if I delete your comment? I don’t really blog very much so I am not sure how to do that stuff!

    Where did you find the orange polka dot wrapping paper? I want to do the same for my daughter’s 1st birthday and use it as a table runner but can’t find it anywhere (all I can find is black and white). Thanks!! 🙂

    Thanks for the wrapping paper/table runner idea! I have used it now a few times, and it adds so much to my tables.
