cute as a button [a pink and gray birthday]

Monday, April 18, 2011

joy of cobblestone rue is one amazing creative mom with a very special blog that i'm a big fan of. recently her sweet adorable daughter campbell turned two and celebrated with a very lovely pink and gray cute-as-a-button party that i am drooling over. pink and gray is one of my favorite color palette and the soft hue was translated to most of the party elements. 


the sweetest letterpressed custom invite featured a button accessory perfect for the theme. garlands of pink buttons were a festive touch to the party as well as the pink and gray poms. i also love the use of gray dotted tablecloths. 


the pink and gray cake with pink and white fondant buttons is a new cake design favorite of mine! so darling!


joy also made pink button chocolate pops which were arranged on mason jars. beautiful ranunculus in mason jars and oversized pink balloons were pretty additions to the party decorations. another favorite of mine? the pink burlap used as tablecloths as well! 



another great option to serve for parties : build-your-own burger bar (in this case, veggie burgers), a fruit bar and a juice bar with multiple juice flavor options for drinks! yummy!


to coordinate with the party color palette, joy covered the juice boxes with custom paper labels to match the theme!


as if that's not enough, joy also baked button cookies perfect for the theme! delish!


and what about these super cute party favor packaging? i'm simply in love with this party! 


if you still can't tell from the amazing party pictures, joy and her husband are incredible professional photographers. visit their facebook page here

Absolutely perfect party! Love the colors, love the theme, love that it's certainly cute as a button, but doesn't make adult guests want to puke. This will be great inspiration for my daughter's first birthday!
