Here’s what Camila said about planning the party- “This was my son Lorenzo’s baptism / 1st birthday party. I am Brazilian, my husband American and my son was born in the US. My family is in Brazil so I wanted Lorenzo’s first birthday and baptism to be there. I have decided on this theme because of the multicutural background my son has – me as an Italian decent and my husband being Cuban/Colombian/American just add up for this awesome international ancestry my son has :) I contacted Fabiana Moura Projetos Personalizados with my theme already in mind. After many emails we decided on a color palette and all the details from the kids to the cake tables. The kids table was done by me. I printed the placemats on the internet and made all the details for the kids using washi tape, fun balloon themed tags that I custom ordered from Esty and fun striped straws. I also made the kids goodie bags with paper bags covered with world themed craft paper. It was a very fun project and I loved the way it came out. Inside each bag we gave the kids a kit with a little fun note pad, crayon holder, crayons and fun balloon stickers. For The cake table I brought some vintage items from the US and also used some vintage items from my family. Fabiana came up with the amazing cake table decor. Each adult table had a balloon, custom made by Fabiana and it was very very cute! The party was a hit and each and every detail was to die for! I really appreciate Fabiana’s vision and her Ability to make my dream come true with exchange of emails :). I couldn’t ask for anything better or more beautiful!”

Here’s what Mariana said about planning this party- “This Party was styled for a little boy’s first birthday and Christening. The hot air balloon theme just seemed perfect for both occasions and it looked stunning in the 20th century blue room where the party took place. Pops of coral and yellow really made the table stand out from the blue background. Sweets on this table included the cake, cupcakes, cake pops, cloud bits (aka Marshmallows) and cookie pops.”

Here’s what Rachel said about planning this party- “When we think of traditional birthday parties–balloons and crepe paper are the first thing that comes to mind. Our goal was to take traditional birthday party elements and use them in a fun and modern way! This party was for a very special girl turning TWO! When planning the party, I wanted the house to be filled with something she’d recognize and love–and what little kid doesn’t love balloons?!
I found so many cute types of crepe paper I didn’t know what to do with it all! I loved the impact the ruffled crepe paper had behind the dessert table–so bright! I wove plain crepe paper together for a pop of color on the white table cloth. And the Italian Crepe Paper was a fun alternative to a table cloth–it really brightened the room!
There was no shortage of balloons at the party–we loved the big balloons on either side of our dessert table and filled the ceiling with as many as we could! The balloon wreath was a great way to welcome guests to the party and set the tone for the event. And the crepe fringe was a fun way to string our polka dot balloons around the room!
The kids kept busy playing with small dart balloons and enjoying the balloon animals made by our resident balloon artist (the birthday girl’s dad!).
We had so many delicious and adorable treats for the guests to munch on–chocolate covered popcorn, dipped marshmallows, gorgeous sugar cookies and Pop Rock cupcakes! We tried to keep the food “light” or “POP” related. (A little note on the cupcakes–the Pop Rocks can’t be put on until right before the party or they will all pop and melt!) Our other favorite treats were Pop Tart Pops and Balloon Pops–both were big hits and tied in our party theme and colors well. Guests took home a bag of homemade gumdrops and some bubbles to pop later–plus, as many balloons as they could bear to take!
It was such a fun theme for a kids birthday party–everyone had a blast.”
