Shabby Chic First Birthday Party

My sweet niece turned one and we threw her the sweetest little party. Inspired by her mama’s favorite colors we went for a Shabby Chic theme.

Green-Eyed Girl Productions offers party planning options from weddings to engagement parties, graduation parties, charity fundraisers and even first birthday parties!

The delightful event showcased here is a first birthday party. The only service requested was a dessert display. Birthday parties are so much fun and totally worth it to have so that you can see your baby’s first experience with cake, however, I definitely see the hesitation to hire a coordinator to “plan” a birthday party.

Instead, I offer options for professional displays or decorations. What you get from the coordinator is access to inventory that is themed (blue mason jars, lace backdrop, cake pedestals, etc) that you wouldn’t necessarily have on hand.

The charge for something like this, a single display, either for food, favors, or whatever) costs to party host only $25 per hour for set up time and an Event Styling Kit for inventory use. Grand total for the first birthday shown here to the client: $35!
