This charming ELEPHANT THEMED FIRST BIRTHDAY PARTY was submitted by Juliana Han of Elefante Colorido in Brazil.
This elephant birthday party could easily be customized to suit either a boy or a girl. There are also so many fun ideas that could be used for an elephant baby shower! Some of my favorite elements in this party are:
The elephant silhouette party picks
The assortment of green topiaries displayed in various sizes and styles of white milk glass vases
Here’s what Juliana said about the party- “For the 1st birthday of our kids’ party hall, we gave ourselves the challenge to develop a table that would be easily customizeable (so we can re-create it in different colors, for boys and girls, following our guests´ requests). We wanted it to be tasteful and delicate, and not use any specialty, expensive sweets, desserts or cakes. With this, we want to keep the cost affordable for our clients to be able to have a beautiful, customized table, without having to spend a lot of money.
There are many different and beautiful tables out there, that are based on expensive and artfully created sweets, desserts and candies. We wanted our table to be based on common brazilian party treats, such as brigadeiro, pink brigadeiro, coconut sweets and so on.
I think we met all our goals beautifully, since everybody who came visiting us on that day complimented us and liked our table very much!”

This charming COUNTY FAIR VINTAGE PATRIOTIC PICNIC PARTY was submitted by Heather Dalton of Chickabug and styled by Madeline Lewis .
With its old-fashioned charm and red, white and blue color scheme, this party would be perfect for celebrating any patriotic event, from Memorial Day to July 4th! Some of my favorite ideas in this county fair patriotic picnic party are:
The boxes wrapped in gingham wrapping paper and used to display party elements
The mini fruit pies
The vintage wooden Coca-Cola crates stacked in front of the table and holding the old-fashioned soda pop bottles
The carnival tickets used to adorn the pennants of the banner spelling out “county fair”
The darling vintage inspired printable collection used in this party is available via Chickabug.
About designing the printables, Heather from Chickabug said- “When Everyday Party Magazine approached me about designing a printables collection for use in their upcoming issue, I jumped at the chance! The vision was to create a vintage style picnic, with red gingham checks, blue ticking, and a patriotic feel. Old fashioned soda bottles, paper straws, and wooden utensils were a big inspiration for the theme! After I designed the set, Everyday Party Magazine asked party stylists to use the kit in a photo shoot (with a prize awarded to the favorite shoot). I was so impressed by what the stylists came up with, especially this county fair-inspired picnic and ‘pie bake-off’ that was styled by Stephanie of Madeline Lewis. Her ideas are SO charming, and I love how she incorporated the printables into her party!”
This sweet VINTAGE BIRTHDAY PARADE THEMED PARTY was submitted by Carlota Zambrano of criando-ando.
There are so many things to love about this casual vintage birthday parade party at Central Park in New York. First off, I love how Carlota used and displayed the darling Birthday Parade Themed Party Supplies from Kara’s Party Shop! Everything was adorable. A few of my favorite elements are:
The partially inflated balloons attached to paper straws and used as cake toppers
The toy horse and cart cardboard centerpiece filled with fresh flowers
Lauren said this about planning the party- “This was my daughter’s 1st birthday party! Deciding on a theme for her 1st birthday was harder than I expected. Oh my are there so many cute ideas out there! She has such a happy demeanor and brings us so much joy every day. I knew I wanted her 1st birthday party to be bright and cheerful like her and when I stumbled on a Pink Lemonade theme I saw online I knew that was it. What could be more cheerful than bursts of yellow and pink and everything lemonade reminding us of warm summer days!
I had so much fun looking for ideas online. In the end I made most of the DIY elements on my own and I’m so glad I did because it made it that more special.
My dear friend Alise Davis with Sweet Marie Designs helped me create and manage a Pinterest board to help organize my ideas and ultimately she did all the amazing flowers for the big party!”
