My Daughters ~ White ~ Birthday Party








all photos and styling by me

Yesterday we celebrated my daughters 4th birthday with a little party at home. I decided to make the theme white. Lanterns from Ebay. White Birds, ribbons and flowers from Factory Direct Craft. Mini glass jars from Ikea. Vintage china plates, tablecloth & shells my own. Here are some photo's before all the kids turned up and turned my "white" party into a chocolate, wet, tomato sauce and spilt soft drink party! What was I thinking?

  24. It looks just beautiful Simone. I love having a colour theme to work with for a party I once did a pink party for my girl, I had so much fun collecting things for it. I hope that the birthday girl had lots of fun!:)

  25. Oh dear! I think you were asking for trouble with the white! It attracts stains like nobody's business! Still, it looks wonderfully serene and beautiful before the hords descended! I love how much effort and thought you put into this! xxx

  32. What a perfect party for your daughter - don't you love that she will look back and say, my mom create magic on my birthday. I bet you do that all year though. My girls party is in two weeks - she'll be two. I'll have to get my mind spinning with ideas!! Your post has started some ideas..
