No California winter birthday party is complete without surfboards and snowmen with sunnies on! If you’re looking for cute winter birthday party ideas for a 1 year old, look no further (we also love this winter onederland party!)! Creative Amme threw the most adorable winter themed birthday for her little Emery complete with the cutest table for the kiddos and a decked out Bloody Mary bar for the adults in attendance. It is full of boho California vibes and wintery charm. And when celebrating in January, what better colors to party with than shades of blue from indigo to icy!
I wanted to work around Harlow and Gray’s Malibu collection; it was dreamy, whimsical, and cool at the same time. The girls from Golden Arrow Events and Design came up with the amazing ‘California dreamin’ theme. With their mood board, I decided to have California ornaments as part of the favors for each family, because “California dreamin'”. Emery’s birthday happened to fall the same week of the Malibu fires. So, I teamed up with our sponsor and close friends One Social Design to make these ornaments, and 100% of the proceeds went to the families who were victims of the fire!
The design all came together with such an amazing group of vendors from the mudcloth stockings by Labour of Love Crafts, to the mudcoth cake by Amriels Cakes, and watercolor surfboard cookies by Sugar Crush Sweets . Plus, the amazing wave backdrop by Rocky Mountain Decals! The little details in the invitations also gave us all the heart eyes!! Another detail was the fringe install behind the sweets table by Michelle Rogers Styling, which tied in the mudcloth and blues to the dessert table. And the ombre balloon install by the window by Best Creationz made all our dreams come true.
Everyone of course enjoyed some photobooth fun by Strike The Pose, some mimosas and bloody Mary’s by Bottles and Blooms, and the crepes by LA Paris Creperie were to die for!! Lastly, we added all the signage, and made custom California dreamin’ stir sticks out of frosted blue acrylic and snowmans with 3D sunglasses that I hand glued myself.
Cute, right?! And who ever said California doesn’t have winter?! 😉
