Rubber Duck 1st Birthday

I love how Rafaela Scarpati from Tetto Eventos styled this rubber duck theme party. The attention to the details are amazing. Among a lot of bubbles and duckies everything is so delicate and sophisticated. Perfect idea for a birthday party or a baby shower.

Gender Reveal Party : Peach, Mint, and Gold

Fun Gender Reveal Party in Peach, Mint, and Gold
As the owner of 36th Street Events, Beth Walker loves throwing parties for any occasion. When she learned she was pregnant, a gender reveal provided a perfect opportunity to celebrate with a fun event! Beth and her team chose a clean, modern style in a pretty peach and mint palette with accents of white and gold. We love that this party is so festive and lovely without being over-the-top.
"The guests were asked to pin down their decision on the sex upon arriving, with little tassels attached to gold safety pins. We even celebrated with drinks to note the gender of choice, peach bellinis and mint juleps.
When it came to the reveal, I wanted to make sure it was both a surprise for the guests and my husband and I. The 36th Street team (other than myself) knew the sex of our baby and created confetti poppers with cake push pops. Painted gold and filled with the colored confetti, guests just had to push the handle to have the confetti pop out.
The reveal was the amazing. Surrounded by our loved ones, we found out we were having a little baby girl. To say I was surprised was an understatement! I was certain that I was having a boy, but life surprises you and we couldn't be happier!"

Fun Mermaid Themed Birthday Party

Fun Mermaid Themed Birthday Party
The idea for Emilee's first birthday party theme popped up for her mom Ashlee Thomas before Emilee had even been born, thanks to a mermaid invitation design Ashlee's best friend had been working on for a design class. Then, when Emilee arrived with that pretty red hair, the theme seemed like it just couldn't be any more perfect! But rather than go Ariel overload with the party, Ashlee opted to bring out the essence of the character, decorating in such a pretty way with lovely beachy details. From the ocean hued palette accented with bright pink and gold to the festive tissue poms and garland, the party feels so happy and feminine. And this party even came with its own mermaid! Too fun.

"I found the 'garden party' color tassel garland first and set my color palette. It worked out really well because Emilee's nursery is done in the same colors so I was able to hang the garlands and poms in her room after. I'm all about reusing party decor. I think it's a shame to pay for things only to use them once and then throw them away."

"Another budget saver was all the beach decor. Most of my house is a coastal theme so I was able to pull things - picture frames, starfish, coral, shells - from other rooms in the house to really make the party come together. I purchased a few of the grape vines (driftwood looking pieces) wholesale and used some strands of pearls to really bring the "shabby ocean chic" vibe to life."

"My favorite part of the party was the photo collage. The idea popped into my head one day and it turned out just like I imagined it. A few fish nets from our local party store, mini clothespins, and pics of Emilee's first year really turned into a great conversation piece. It was fun looking back at her first year in pictures."

"Since we are in Southern California it is still hot in September so I knew it had to be a swim party. And with it being over 100 degrees the day of the party, all the guests were glad to be in the pool. Luckily for me, my mother-in-law knows a real "mermaid," so imagine my guests surprise when they come outside to get in the pool and find a real mermaid swimming in it! She was the highlight of the party for all the kids there."
