This precious GENDER NEUTRAL SPRING SOIREE FIRST BIRTHDAY PARTY was submitted by Belinda Blackwood of Littlechair.

I love the simplicity and all of the delicate components of this party! It has so many sweet ideas that would be perfect for both boy and girl parties, as well as baby and bridal showers. A few of my favorite elements of this gender neutral spring soiree are:
  • The mini ribbon banner cake topper
  • The painted wooden spoon and water balloon activity
  • The butterfly cupcake toppers
  • and MORE!

This is what Belinda said about planning the party- “When we shared our news of a new baby due to arrive in September with our 2 children aged 6 and 3, there was much discussion about what ‘Season’ this baby would be born in! It was decided that we should put flowers into the garden to welcome our baby in spring…and so in April we lovingly placed Freesia bulbs deep into the ground around our home. During the weeks that led to Baby’s arrival we noticed with much excitement one by one the freesias start to appear randomly in our garden beds. Each Beautiful Freesia seemed to take us another step closer to our baby’s arrival and we all welcomed the distraction while we waited.

Our Baby Boy arrived on a beautiful spring day in September last year, and as I walked to the car on the way to the hospital I could smell freesias in the air, and see the cheerful dots of color throughout our garden beds. Of course our 2 excited children greeted us in hospital after baby’s arrival bearing a beautiful bunch of hand-picked Freesias which sat in a vase beside our bed for our stay.

I did not remove the bulbs from the garden after they had flowered as ‘they’ say you are supposed to do….and to our surprise, one by one our Freesias have flowered again this spring…just in time for our Baby Boys first birthday.

We decided on a “Spring theme” for Ned’s 1st Birthday Celebration using bright yellow and orange to complement the freesia’s we had in our garden. We set up the party table in our nearby “parklands” and enjoyed a morning of fun with close family and friends.”
