An Enchanted Forest 1st Birthday

By Thedreamery

Hello Spring! Although, most of us are still bracing the cold and covered in snow, today is the perfect day to finally share this beautiful party I styled at the end of February. A first birthday is a milestone in itself, and even if you aren’t keen on birthdays, the 1st is a mandatory celebration! It of course has to be extra special and extra adorable. On a sun-filled Sunday, a bare space transformed itself for Delia’s 1st birthday, into a beautiful enchanted forest, fit with a secret garden, gorgeous sweet treats and a special area just for playful fairies. Scroll below to see every lovely detail from this special celebration…An Enchanted Forest 1st BirthdayAn Enchanted Forest 1st BirthdayAn Enchanted Forest 1st BirthdayAn Enchanted Forest 1st BirthdayThe centerpieces themselves resembled miniature forests. Beds of lush green moss were topped with rustic tree slices, and terrariums that were filled with a mixture of pink daisies and roses, soft lavender mums, bright green mums and yellow solidago, and delicate Quicksand roses. This is what enchanted floral dreams are made of! Finishing the foresty look, were twinkling moss covered votives and pinecones lightly dusted with gold paint. Of course an enchanted forest isn’t complete without its gilded mountain animals. An Enchanted Forest 1st BirthdayAn Enchanted Forest 1st BirthdayAn Enchanted Forest 1st BirthdayAn enchanted forest 1st birthday wouldn’t be the same without some fairy games and activities, and there was plenty of fun times for all the little fairies and garden creatures attending! Tri-State Kids stopped by, bringing pretty face painting, whimsical balloon animals, cotton candy and even a magic show. There was a bouncy house where kiddos could jump around and release their energy, which got them tired enough for painting.

This was by far the biggest hit amongst the kids. We had personalized coloring books and twig colored pencils for each, and painting stations where they could paint wooden slabs and create unique fairy houses. Kids, young and even old, loved painting these little houses, choosing their own fairy and decorating with the cutest mini mushrooms. The birthday girl loved watching others take part in the fun, but her big sister Olivia is the one who loved it the best. You can tell by her paint filled hands, and dress, she’s a budding artist. Each child’s creation was just so cute!

One of my biggest tips for anyone throwing a birthday with 5 or more children, set up an activity station. The kiddos will be busy, and you will be thankful they’ll have something to do and you can actually enjoy yourself!

An Enchanted Forest 1st Birthday
Prepare to feast your eyes on this gorgeous and enchanting dessert table. The word “enchanting” may have been used way to many times, but I don’t know how else to describe all the beautiful details of this beautiful….If the pretty twinkling lit backdrop draped with fern didn’t make you swoon, then the stunning desserts certainly will. I couldn’t stop staring at the cake pops and mini cakes, made by a family friend, each detailed with edible gilded details and the perfect little roses.

A naked cake is a garden theme’s best friend, it’s the perfect base to create and add whatever pretty florals and forest greens imaginable. Guests were not only ooh-ing and ahh-ing over the lovely desserts, they were getting to know Delia a bit better. With an adorable chalkboard sign detailed with fun facts and a display of adorable photos of her amazing 1st year, you couldn’t help but say awww.”

The final touch…the dreamiest secret garden, because all enchanting forests have that special little place so beautiful, people can’t help but stop by to photograph it. Alongside glowing candles and Delia’s own butterfly cage, the photobooth became the hangout for everyone to gather to snap silly and pretty pictures. Aren’t these sisters the most precious little girls ever! I couldn’t get enough of them…
