Miriam's Birthday Party

The planning for this party began sometime in mid October. After designing the invitation and and transitioning from a pink and black color scheme to more of a monochromatic pink scheme I started scouring the internet for ideas.  All I have to say is that there are some amazingly talented women and moms out there!  WOW!!   We were having the party at 2pm and decided to just have a dessert table and not offer other snacks or food items. Since I knew I would be throwing this party on a pretty limited budget I knew it was going to have to be a lot of DIY!  I  decided that I was going to do all of the baking, something that I always love attempting (though not always without frustrations) and all of the decorations! Enjoy some of the pictures from the day!

 Dessert Table...lots of Pink! Inspired by Amy Atlas Event and Pizzazzerie, I don't think that there are enough words to describe how amazingly talented these women are and the beautiful work that they do!
I covered boxes that we had around the house with wrapping paper, scrapbook paper and ribbon.  Found some great dishes on clearance at Target and used a plexiglass box frame turned upside down, trimmed with ribbon for a tray for the cupcakes, turned out great!

 French Macarons, 4 colors, 3 fillings...not to shabby for my first attempt

Pink Candied Popcorn Favor Bags with tags I designed

We had 35 of our wonderful family and friends there to help celebrate with us!
Total party cost including all food and decorations were just under $114....not too bad!

  1. Miriam's Birthday Party theme is really enchanting to me. The exciting color scheme is just eye catching. All the pink colored food is just so tempting. Would love to have all of these things. Keep sharing such posts. At the local event venue NYC we also threw a great birthday bash with rainbow theme! The birthday girl was so excited to have a colorful party.
