Sweet Soirees: DIY Sugar Plum 1st Birthday


EDE Sugar Plum Birthday4

December birthdays can be tough and I know, first hand, because I have one- and now, so does my daughter.  I want her birthdays to feel as special as those “lucky” kids who get to have pool party birthdays in the summer.  We celebrated Courtney’s first birthday by embracing the holiday spirit with a theme of Our Sugar Plum is Turning 1!  It was a festive affair that lent itself well for a little girl’s birthday party.  My favorite details included the paper-doll ballerina garland, a tulle tutu for my little one, ballerina cupcake toppers, Amazingly Good Eggnog, and party cracker favors.
