Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star First Birthday Party Theme

I went bold, gold and glittery for my daughter, Genevieve’s, first birthday party. We chose a Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star theme and made sure it was evident in each party element.

I added gold sparkle stars to the cake…11986459_10207622476901212_5887433222058256061_n

…And also used the stars to accent the food.10994459_10207622486541453_6497901864622618463_n

We kept centerpieces simple using adorable .99 cent vases from Ikea and adding baby’s breath, sprinkled in gold glitter. As as accent, we threw in hand-painted pink wooden stars that are now keepsakes.

For favors, kids got gold sparkly wands from Oriental Trading and adults were treated to chocolate-dipped pretzel rods adorned with–you guessed it– gold stars!11988622_10207622483581379_5897518827420903477_n

We had a table of fun for the kids. I pulled together clip art from the Internet and made coloring book pages in Photoshop.
