This Golden First Birthday Party is Solid Gold

This party is gold baby, solid gold! Alexis at The Shift Creative took her son’s ‘golden birthday’ literally with a decked out and glittering golden first birthday party. If you recall, she’s the queen of over-the-top (in the best way possible) parties that feature extravagant backdrops, incredible desserts, and awesome themes. Remember this fiesta birthday party, or this magical one full of unicorns?! And this one doesn’t disappoint either. It was her son’s first birthday after all! Scroll on for all the golden fun…

Alexis says, Every year I always tell my friends and family that I am going to keep it simple. Every. Year. This year was my son’s 1st birthday and while it’s more toned down than some of my daughter’s parties – the elements and details make this original and so special. Enter- Sullivan’s Golden birthday party. Thats right, a party just focused on being gold baby, solid gold. I focused on the dessert area and had that phrase hung in balloons over all the gold themed desserts. Sugarcrush Sweets perfectly executed everything from cupcakes in gold cones, golden themed cookies, and a huge cookie cake that spelled out “Golden” that was stunningly beautiful!

Being an installation artist I HAD to do a photo backdrop, so I teamed up with my friends over at Chloe and Mint to create a magical set-up with lots of gold fringe and spray painted florals! Anything spray painted gold is magic in my opinion! They killed it with the florals and it was the perfect touch to the party!

I hope this theme gives a lot of fun inspiration and helps people think outside of the box!


Isn’t it incredible?! We want to relive our golden birthdays and mimic this one exactly…
