We just fell in love with the vintage kite inspired party collection offered by Minted and knew immediately where we would style it....in my good friend's garden doorway :).
The inspiration for the handmade fabric kites came directly from the party's invitation. We used the same blocking pattern and coloring, but added texture and dimension to the color scheme by choosing complementary fabrics for the kite patterns. For additional texture, we utilized both this textured burlap table skirt and the white floral petal table runner.
Our simple cloud cake was topped with a handmade kite, also inspired by Minted's invitation design. We found this great vintage copper pot and decided to flip it upside down to use as a cake stand. Simple cupcakes were topped with coral paper heart toppers and displayed on a custom made wooden cloud cupcake stand.
Cloud sugar cookies were stacked on a royal blue stand with a custom sign stating, "Come Fly with Me". And for added tabletop decor, we designed this blue kite print, personalized with the birthday boy's details as a keepsake.
The courtyard was decorated with the coordinating "Happy Birthday" banner from the Minted collection.
Overall, we just loved the setting, the simple, yet pulled together look and the general whimsical feeling of a kite themed 1st birthday party!
