Down In The Garden

Originally, I was planning a rather low key second birthday for my son. Not quite sure if "low key" is in my vocabulary especially when designing over the top memorable parties! The party turned out amazing and most importantly was filled with love and laughter from family and friends. My mother has an exquisitely lush garden, and since we would be visiting, it was fairly obvious to pick a garden themed birthday party! 

I am a firm believer that the small details are what brings continuity and design together. The theme was carried out through the details, from the one-of-a-kind invitations, garden mushroom cake, handmade table art, and many more garden-inspired ideas.

Theme: Down In The Garden
No need for props when the setting offers it's own garden throne-like chair, flowers at every glance, glorious oak trees, water running fountains, and one unique birdhouse after another. 


The food was perfect for adults and children, simple and delicious. Gourmet chicken salad, crossiants, fresh ham and turkey for mini sandwiches, pasta salad, fruit salad, gourmet toadstool cookies, and birdhouse cake by SugarMamas. Champagne mimosas and belinnis were served since the party is for adults as well!

Toadstool cookies, rock crayons, garden animal branch pencils and handmade ribbon flower mini champagne bottles, and a mini garden basket to take all your goodies home!
