Lula’s First Birthday Party!

one_3

A couple weekends ago we celebrated Lula’s first birthday. If you’ve seen her party invitation you already know that the theme was “Fete Foraine” inspired by Le Parc de la Tete d’Or a gorgeous park in my hometown. We couldn’t have hoped for a better weather and were so glad almost all of our friends could be here with us to celebrate and my parents too!

I had fun making the paper decors: swan, ferris wheel, cotton candy machine,pinwheels, garlands, little train and ice-cream stand. The napkins, glasses, tablecloths, plates were from Meri Meri and the party hats from Oh Joy for Target collection. Our friend Thibault made 30 delicious belgian waffles (thank you again so so much, they were a hit!) and my mum brought from France a lot of sweets: cherry lollipops, dragés, biscuit rose de reims, roudoudou…. we also had pop corn, Sugar & Spun cotton candy, cupcakes from Mission MinisDynamo donuts and Anthony’s cookies (thank you Maria and Jason! my favorite cookies in SF). Ouahh so much food and I didn’t even find the time to eat, I was so busy running everywhere…but I caught up the day after with the left overs!

I hope you enjoy looking at these beautiful photos taken by amazing photographer Priscilla Gragg! Merci Priscilla!

Sorry for the amount of photos, I couldn’t choose! (and even more to come)

Lula wore 2 different outfits! She started with a super fun tutu from Australian company Rock your baby. And then she wore a Jacadi dress and Freshly Picked moccasins. Her pom pom felt crown is from Hiho batik.

  1. So very cute! These photos are very sweet and it looks like everyone had a beautiful time! Happy 1st Birthday little Lula! You sure are one adorable baby girl! This is not too many photos Chloe, haha. I cannot wait to see more…. 🙂

  2. Wow!! Just loved everything, and Lula is such an adorable and cute baby!! Congratulations for her 1st birthday!

    Could you tell where did you find that cute pink swing and the red fishing rods? Thanks!

  3. Magique! En plus le thème est assez original, et bien sûr de très bon goût. Tout est si joli. Je suis déjà en train de penser aux préparatifs des anniversaires de mes 2 filles qui n’auront lieu que fin décembre, mais on ne s’y prend jamais assez tôt! Le problème c’est que pour mon ainée qui fêtera ses 5 ans, je n’ai déjà plus trop le choix dans le thème qui sera forcément “princesse-rose”! Je me rattraperai pour celui de ma petite, à 2 ans, on est plus malléable! Félicitations pour ce fantastique travail!
