Aubrey's Sweet Shoppe Birthday Party! (Part Two)

The Decor!

After changing the theme TWICE, I decided to go for a sweet shoppe meets ice cream parlor themed birthday party.  I fell in love fast with all the endless ideas you could do with a theme like this--& decided I would try my best to make everything PINK!  

I picked up this old wooden high chair from an antique store for $12.00 & spray painted it white.  I sanded it a little to give it a vintage-y look.  The high chair "tutu" was sent c/o Chic Baby Rose.  I think it gave it the perfect, girly touch!

These cute pink & white polka dot balloons are from amazon--couldn't pass 'em up!

Adorable hat from A to Zebra Celebrations.

I put some framed photos of Aubrey from now & then on the tables.. along with some fresh flowers..

The tissue garland was sent by the ever so talented Carmen from PomFlair--love how festive it looks!

I had previously owned the mason jars, & decided to use them as lemonade glasses with some cutesy striped pink & white straws.

Personalized water bottle labels from Chickabug.

I made a little timeline banner of Aubrey's "monthly" pictures.  

The food was delicious, & all made by my amazing mama.  I didn't get any pictures, probably because I was busy stuffing my face :)

"Jumbo" lollipops lined the grass & walkway, made by spray painting wooden poles, attaching balloons wrapped in cellophane paper & tied with a ribbon. 

Poms = PAIN to make!  

But totally worth it, no?

 The sweet shoppe table was filled with all sorts of pink & white treats.. & fabulous labels by Chickabug.

 My mom & I made these cupcake centerpieces--almost looks edible!

 Cupcake toppers also by Chickabug.

 Cupcakes, sugar cookies, & ice cream cone cake pops, were all made by Royal Sweets & Treats!  Thanks Roya!

 Aubrey's smash cake was made by my mom, cake bunting made by me. 

The "Ice Cream Parlor" fixins'..

Invites & favor tags also by Chickabug.

Steve & I with our very happy one year old girl!
