“One” Upon a Time… A True Fairy Tale Birthday Party!

If you are looking for a unique and adorable first birthday party theme, look no further! This “One Upon a Time” party from my friend Crystal is too adorable! Crystal did nearly everything herself and created the sweetest little party for her daughter, Claire.

“For our sweet Claire’s first birthday we wanted something fun and girly, but not the typical princess theme and pink ruffles. After much brainstorming, we decided on the theme “One Upon A Time.” We loved the clever play on words and thought it was perfect for our book loving adventurer. We went with an “antique/shabby chic/woodland” feel, complete with lace, mason drinking jars, books galore, a paper tree accompanied by a clothes “storyline,” and a storybook themed menu.”

Thank you for sharing, Crystal!
