Lace and Pearls Themed Party

By the time my daughter turned 1, I had thrown 6 boy themed birthday parties. I was super excited to finally get to plan an elegant 1st birthday. I chose to throw a lace and pearls themed party. 

This party was a huge success. It was fun, elegant, and super easy to put together. Being me, or anyone normal these days, I use Pinterest for inspiration. I want a cake made with clean ingredients, easy and inexpensive decorations, plus fun finger foods.  

This girlie theme is just one of the fun kids’ parties ideas. Check out this collection of party themes to get your imagination going. If I was throwing this party for an older girl, I might add a fun princess castle too.

Tips for a fantastic kids party

Kids parties are all about creating memories. Sure, you may be tempted to go crazy with decorations and perfectly curated dessert tables. But what’s important is that people are happy and having fun. There are several key areas that I like to focus on when planning a kids party.

  • Party food. For an elegant 1st birthday party I want simple foods that kids and adults will enjoy. 
  • Simple decorations. Adding a few wall decorations and some table decor will really bring the party together.
  • Party Activity. The main event at a first birthday party is the smash cake. For a lot of kids, this is their first time eating cake, so it’s usually fun to watch.
  • The extra details. For our lace and pearl themed party, this extra detail was a cute lace outfit for V to wear.

Finger sandwiches for kids’ birthday party

Finger sandwiches are perfect for an elegant party. They are super easy to make but can be time-consuming, so make sure to give yourself plenty of time to put them together. I chose to make 6 different tea sandwiches.

  • Cream Cheese with Cucumbers and Dill
  • Walnut Honey Cream Cheese with Pear
  • Hummus with Tomato and Cucumber
  • Smoked Salmon with Cream Cheese and Dill
  • Ham with Apricot Preserves and Cream Cheese
  • Peanut Butter with Bacon and BananaFinger sandwiches are great for a peal and lace birthday party. #twitchetts

Even though the sandwiches seemed extra fancy, the kids loved them!

Elegant First Birthday Party Decorations

The decorations need to be elegant. But we love simple too. For this party, there are 2 main areas to decorate. The wall behind where V will eat her smash cake, and the food table.This lace and pearls themed party is perfect for a 1st birthday.

This “ONE” sign is super simple. Just purchase some paper doilies and paint an “O”, “N”, and an “E” onto each one. Then tape them to the wall.

After this party was over, I used the leftover doilies to create fun doily roses. I could have used these at the actual party!

To create the V, I cut a large letter out of the side of a cardboard box that I had been saving. I painted it pink and Modge Podged on doilies.This lace and pearls themed party is perfect for a 1st birthday.

For the food table, I used bits and pieces of the supplies that I used on the wall.

I used the scraps from the big flowers to make some smaller paper flowers here and there.  Some more of the cheap pearls on the table.  The lace I had from a few scarves my grandmother used to wear. I’m sure you can get small pieces at a fabric store.  It definitely spruced up the cheap plastic tablecloths underneath.This lace and pearls themed party is perfect for a 1st birthday.

Add a lemonade station to the party for a fun touch. Check out how we create a mix-your-own pink lemonade station.Refreshing pink lemonade station. Summer party drink station. Let your guests pick their flavor of lemonade.

1st Birthday party activity

When it comes to a first birthday party, the main event is usually the smash cake. Pink is hard to get without using red food dye, so I had to think outside the box.

I made her cake using all organic ingredients. I also made the frosting from scratch using dehydrated strawberry powder to color the frosting pale pink. The color wasn’t as vibrant as I had hoped, but the flavor was Amazing!!

 Lace outfit for a 1st Birthday

Sometimes it takes one little detail to bring the whole party together. For me, it was an adorable outfit that I saw on Etsy. I contacted the seller at SweetChubbyCheeks and she worked with my colors to make this perfect 1st birthday outfit! I added some pearls and V was ready to Party!This lace and pearls themed party is perfect for a 1st birthday.
