This adorable Vegetable Patch themed first birthday party was inspired by the birthday boy Milo's favorite food and nickname: Sweet Potato! His mom, Brittany Hackett of BB Jean Events, designed and crafted the event herself, tackling everything from the paper goods and decor to the yummy treats. The invitation she made mimicked a vintage farmer's market poster they loved -- so cute! Joe & Patience captured all of the details, and you can find all of the photos submitted over in the full gallery. Brittany shared all of the party planning details with us, so read on for more.
”We kept the food kid friendly, but also included a rustic crudite' platter, bowls of whole berries, sweet potato fries and herb infused simple syrup for sweetening iced tea."
"Working with browns, oranges, blues and greens, we added pops of colors with paper lanterns and striped table overlays. Vegetables took center stage in the decor and we used them for the buffet and decorating guest tables."
”Guests mingled while children had a craft table set up where they could decorate their own plant pot and take home dirt and seeds to start their own garden.”
"For dessert, there were sweet potato cupcakes topped with homemade fondant veggies, seed packet sugar cookies and pudding dirt cups in pots."
”Milo's smash cake was a homemade sweet potato naked cake topped with a fondant sweet potato. For cake time, one of Milo's playmates decided to get in on the action. :)”
