From Little Miss Party: Colette’s mom wanted the party to feel soft, vintage and feminine and since the party was in the beginning of January (when it usually is cold and snowy), we loved the idea of using muted pink, soft gold, ivory and burlap brown for the color story. Above the food station our source of decor was a really pretty bunting made out of many strips of fabric. We spent an afternoon at Mood in the garment district picking out fabrics that were unique in texture, pattern and color making this banner different and interesting against the large wrought iron windows that fit in so perfectly with the vibe of this party. We also thought it would be fun to spruce up the winter crudite by serving in glass cubes that I covered with burlap fabric and decorated with pretty ribbon. Above the bar we set a string of photos of the birthday gal. Traci loves Coke so I thought it would be really cute to get some of the old school bottles to set out on a wood tray and they were a hit. We also set out vintage looking milk bottles for the kids with C’s and 1′s tied with ribbon around each. We had some fun with the coffee station as well spicing up the design on our cups and serving hot cocoa for what we thought would be a cold winter’s day. Last but certainly not least – dessert. This table was my favorite. So clean and pretty looking. We also took fabric and draped it over the stairs that we used for gifts. This was a perfect way to keep the kids from climbing up to the deck and trying to escape from the 13th floor of this loft…not to mention looked very pretty! The party was timed nicely, the music flowed throughout and the guests truly seemed to enjoy themselves. Most importantly, our guest of honor Colette was happy and looked to have a smashing time at her first birthday party.
