real parties: adorable elephant first birthday

6.21.2011
The ladies of Dulce Sobremesa in Spain sent along this handcrafted first birthday party for Mateo, including one of the sweetest little elephants I've ever seen.  I've had a love of elephants since I was given my first babar at 7 month old... so this simple little pachyderm appeals to both my design and emotional sensibilities. Everything you see here was handmade by the dynamic Spanish duo including the garlands, labels, party hat and even the mini cake.  So very cute.

  1. I love this so much. So simple, with awesome pops of color. I think my favorites are the big balloons and the little mini felt balloons coming out of the cake.

  12. The title says it all, adorable. What a beautiful bday party. The colors just look great together.

    Just curious if there were party favors and what you did for the food? anything elephant-themed?
