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!”

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!”

A few of the highlights to look for in this sweet fairy garden party are:
The desserts wrapped in paper and served in pots to resemble flowers
The layers of ribbon tied around the table
The lovely 2-tiered cake wrapped with a fondant bow
This is what Astir and Alessandra said about the party- “To celebrate the 1st birthday of Maria Antonia mama wanted something delicate and magical, with many flowers! Working with the colors pink, lilac, green and white, we create an enchanted world where fairies roam between flowers and candy! It was a delicate feast full of charm and lots of flowers!”
Here’s what Brandyce said about the party- “We wanted Brooke’s birthday party to be a memorable one. We had been trying for a 2nd child for over 4 years and when we found out we were having a girl (we already had a boy) I started planning her birthday party! I love chevron and pink! Kara’s Party Ideas gave me inspiration and I was able to tweak to fit our party theme and overall look. I bought some of the items from Kara’s Party Ideas Shop, the chalk board labels from Sprinkled Joy. Simply Party did the food labels, straw flags and the favor stickers. My husband and I designed the chalk board print, the photos around the mason jars and printed all the prints and portraits we had taken of her over the year. My husband is a professional photographer with Studio Benton so he took all the detail images and friends took candid photos for us so we could enjoy the party with our 1 year old! It was a celebration of her 1st year and a Thank You to all our family and friends for supporting us!”
Here’s what Lynette said about planning the party- “I always wanted a girly theme for my daughter Georgina’s first birthday. I want something unique but cute at the same time and of course it had to be pink! That’s why I chose the Pink Poodle in Paris theme.
Decorations were made by Gigglebugs Gifts and Parties including the Eiffel towers as centerpieces and the stage backdrop. The pink poodle balloons were all shipped from the US. We set up a mini salon and a photo booth for the guests to enjoy.
The desserts were by Flibby’s Sweets and Treats and Eye Candy Creative Designs helped decorate the dessert table.
Ms. Noreza which is a good friend of my sister made the delicious and very cute poodle cake for our little Georgina.”
