We believe in unicorns

We have a three year old! It still feels surreal this is us and our family. I love planning and this year I came across cute unicorn decor items months prior to starting to plan this party and thats how I decided on the theme. I always try to keep decor a mixture of kids + adult friendly, with simple white linen and hints of gold but still having pops of colour in the napkins to tie in with the balloon garland and kids table kept my theme together. 
My new found love; a super simple DIY balloon garland added a whimsical feel to our greenery backdrop how did i not try this before. I looked at so many tutorials and it seemed much more difficult then it actually was, i didn't end up using a tutorial i created it as i went. 
We we're able to get the four of us in a family photo as baby b was sleeping but miss v felt special and she had our full attention. 
Do you believe in Unicorns?

Desert Love

The love for travel and the desert brought together this overall theme for Miss V's Second Birthday.  While traveling in Florida I found the cutest cactus table cloth which I knew I had to use for the party and would be the focal point to the kids table. Which then lead to the custom invitations; keeping them simple yet eye catching had the guests wondering what was in store for the overall party. 

Our 40 foot guest table isn't a standard to an outdoor party, with square white dinner plates and cactus centerpiece which guests were able to take home.  I always try to have everyone seated together as it doesn't happen everyday where you can get all family together for meal if its not a set occasion. 

The desserts table is my favourite to plan and decorate.  We wanted to continue our theme of cactus with our DIY hexagone shelves acting as our statement backdrop piece, paired with our white bar table topped with a ton of delicious themed desserts. And the cake; oh my. I found this cake designer a few years ago and knew her attention to details would not disappoint!

A mini's tablescape paired with matching white resin chairs, square white plates which acted as our chargers paired with super cute square cactus plates, and matching green cups; the children definitely felt so special.
