For Poppy’s first Birthday party we went with a sunshine and rainbows theme! We wanted to share a little extra love so made sure that there were multiple aspects of her party that gave back. We were sorry not to be able to celebrate with friends and more family but that didn’t mean we weren’t going to make it extra special!

How cute are these little plates and napkins? I layered the plates and napkins to make it look like a little piece of sky with the rainbow and cloud napkins and little sunny plate. I loved this pop of red for the flower sunnies, such a pretty contrast!
As I mentioned earlier, this was a year we wanted to give back in a more intentional way and because it was our daughters first birthday we wanted to set a tone for the way will continue to celebrate her and the rest of our community. I work with vendors whose mission it is to also give back and for her birthday I teamed up with a bunch of wonderful people who helped us create a beautiful party with meaning. These vessels from Black Mountain Ceramics donated a portion of our purchase to SNaP 4 Freedom and The Okra Project. I selected the Solstice planter (larger) and the Rise planters (small tumblers) not just for the color (which Jennifer was able to custom create off of a planter I already had from her) but also because the names of the vessels aligned again with Poppy, her birthday, June 21 is summer solstice.
I had these custom drink stirrers made by Proper Letter Co. for the lemonade and served this sparkling wine from One Hope (one of my favorites) that donates a portion of each purchase to provide healthy meals to children. Every bottle gives back to a different cause and the wine is SO good!
How gorgeous are these cakes from Josephine LA??? This is another one of my favorite vendors, their cakes and desserts are amazing, AND each time you order their desserts, purchase from the marketplace or attend one of their events, you help provide food, education, medical care, and safety for children and teens. LOVE.
Even though we couldn’t celebrate with friends this year we made sure that our small little celebration was extra special. I love the way it all turned out and was so glad to start Poppy’s birthday party years with a mission of love and inclusion for everyone.
Let me know what you think!
Sending lots of love!
