I started dreaming of Olivia’s first birthday party as soon as she was born! Since I had been taking monthly pictures of her with floral numbers (see previous post), I decided to keep it cohesive and go with a floral/garden theme for her party. My style has always been simple, classy, and clean. So my vision for Olivia’s party was just that – with a touch of whimsical and pretty.
Despite the rain that afternoon, our venue, Jolane’s in Glenview, IL provided the perfect amount of light in their glass-surrounded atrium. The amazing florist, Sara from Vale of Enna, truly made my vision come to life with her beautiful floral arrangements on the head table and cakes as well as her lush bayleaf garlands on the ivory white chiffon backdrop and large, round balloons. Urban Icing made the two-tiered ruffled cake, gold leafed semi-naked cake, and smash cake. Our dear friend and incredibly talented photographer, Chris Kim, captured all of the special moments and details of our baby girl’s big day.
The dohljabi guessing jars display, monthly picture frame, wishing tree, decorating, and all of the calligraphy on the signs were done by me.
