Please Note:

From 2011-2016, we had an inspiration blog featuring nurseries, baby showers, parties, and portraits that were submitted to us by photographers, designers, and parents. We no longer accept submissions or post new blog content, but we have left the archive here for those who have saved this content, or for new readers looking for inspiration.

Hannah's Bird Themed First Birthday Party

Birds are always a popular theme, and we love to see how different people interpret and style it. This party comes to us all the way from South Africa! Vanessa de Villiers planned and photographed this darling first birthday party for little Hannah, who loves birds, making it the perfect theme for her. There are many sweet little details throughout, all hand crafted and unique. We really love the invitation from Growing Paper, made of paper with seeds embedded inside! You can actually plant the invitation when you are finished with it. So cool! See more lovely photos in the gallery with the link at the bottom of this post.
