I LOVE the color Mint. Love it. It’s my latest obsession!!! So when my sweet friend Miranda asked me to help her put together a first birthday party for her adorable little princess Eliana, I knew we had to go with the Mint!! Little Eliana was actually born on St. Patrick’s Day so incorporating some St. Paddy’s Day Bling into the design was perfect. We wanted to avoid the typical, cheesy holiday decor and do something simple and elegant. So mint stripes, ruffles, and glittery gold seemed only fitting! Check it out…
I loved the contrast between the soft mint and the glittery gold. The simplicity of the design and the tablescape made a great set-up for a fun party at the park. It was a gorgeous day (although, a little windier than you’d like as a party planner). The weather was perfect and the green grass made for a nice backdrop to the party.
We had homemade chocolate chip cookies, cupcakes, glazed donuts, marshmallow pops, and green fruit skewers for dessert. We also had hot dogs and polish dogs and all the fixings! It was lovely and yummy!
Here’s a close-up of the fruit skewers. A little tip for using apples…to keep them from browning up too fast, soak them in sprite immediately after cutting until you are ready to serve them. It helps soooo much!!
