Real Party: Sunshine Birthday

With kids heading back to school, it’s starting to feel like summer is over.  I’m not sure if I’m quite ready for that, so I thought we’d revel in summer just a little longer with today’s adorable Real Party.  This Sunshine Party was created by Lindi Haws, owner and designer of lovetheday on Etsy. We’ve featured Lindi’s products before, but this party was created for her own little girl’s first birthday.  First birthdays are just not the same when you have a talented and creative mother!

Lindi designed all of the printed party materials herself, and did quite an impressive job.  I love the bright yellow accented with sunflowers and touches of creamy lace.  Here is a little of what Lindi had to say about this event:

“Guests were welcomed with a “come around back” sign, my rustic fence was surrounded with yellow bunting (made from vintage sheets), around the yard large dowels were painted and draped with fabric and “Ellason is 1″ signs, glass jars were hung from the trees filled with yellow daisies and lemon drops, flowers were stapled to the fence to serve as table backdrop and sun garland hung from the fence as well!”

The handmade lollipops were from Amy Sweet Dream while the panna cotta, banana pudding, mini cheesecakes and chocolate truffles were from City Sweets.  The cupcakes were from Georgetown Cupcakes and the sugar cookies were by Jane Miller.

A very special thank to you Lindi for sharing this cheery first birthday bash with us.  You can see more of Lindi’s creations and purchase the printables to create your own Sunshine Party in the lovetheday Etsy Shop.

    I just love those little glass bottles! They’re so expensive to buy here in Australia though $6 each!
    I love the colour and simplicity of this. Purely stunning!
