First birthday parties are so special and sweet, but they can also be stressful and overwhelming for busy parents. We know the pain!
So, when we found out that our "girl crush" Whitney Port was throwing her son, Sonny (nickname Chickens) a first birthday party, our team immediately reached out. Upon viewing our chic paper tableware collections, the fashion designer and TV personality fell in love with the blush and mint green palette from our Daydream Collection and soon-to-released Desert Rose Collection.
As moms ourselves, we know how daunting the thought of planning a birthday party could be. First birthday parties, in particular, can be quite distressing to sleep-deprived new parents. So, we decided to pack our bags and fly to Los Angeles to help Whitney style her son's party! With less than two weeks to Sonny's party, we had to swiftly come up with a concept that could be simple to execute yet stunning for her guests to enjoy. We wanted Sonny to be impressed since he was the guest of honor! We also wanted the decor to reflect Whitney's effortless sense of style. After all, these memories (and Instagram photos) will be treasured for a lifetime.
With a background in event design, our co-founder and creative director, Gloria, quickly mocked up a simple yet sweet dessert display for the party. We were also able to pull in some AMAZING Los Angeles vendors - Wild Child Party for the spectacular balloon installation, Rooted & Wild for the beautiful floral arrangements, and Sweet & Saucy Shop for the lovely sweet treats - to help make this happen at the last hour!

If you can, try to display a pair of tall and low floral arrangements on the side to add some dimension to the table.
We knew that most of Whitney's guests would hang out in her gorgeous newly renovated backyard, so we dressed that area with simple coordinating decor to tie everything together.
We placed several stacks of our Daydream and Desert Rose tableware across the table to make it easy for guests to grab.
For outdoor events, even when the weather is forecasted to be unbearably hot, we recommend placing weighted objects over our paper tableware to anchor them down against wind. We wouldn't want our plates to fly off the table! In this instance, we painted some wood blocks in our color palette.
And seeing how happy and pleased Whitney and Sonny were with the party, it totally made our day!
