What I liked about… Penny’s First Birthday Party


Penny celebrated her first year at the legendary Hotel Del Coronado with her wonderful parents, family and guests. We wanted this to be an affair to remember so we designed an upscale event that would look like a wedding reception and we worked around a cute Minnie Mouse theme (Penny’s favorite Disney character).


The color palette was a combination of baby pink, lavender and deep purple with a splash of turquoise.




The vision came to life in the Ballroom with lavender linens, purple overlays with floral textures, and silver Chiavari chairs by Sweet Ribbon Events, and delicate centerpieces in silver urns and candelabra by Jolie Fleur.




Dolldine Designs created all the paper items from the cute invitation in pink, purple, silver glitter and black, to the escort cards, table numbers and guest book – all matching the Minnie Mouse theme.


Penny’s mother, Leah crafted the beautiful card box – She’s very creative!


Grove Pastry Shop made super cute cookies (with a Minnie Mouse shape, of course!) as favors, and Dolldine Designs provided the tag.





Friends and family were entertained all night long with a photo booth by The Groove, balloon artist and face tattoo artist by Creative Entertainment, and fun mascots – Minnie Mouse, Mickey Mouse, Goofy and Donald Duck. Minnie Mouse came dressed all in pink 🙂


The grand finale was a tiered cake by Grove Pastry Shop decorated with ruffles and a Minnie Mouse silhouette matching the one that was used on the invitation.


Congratulations to the little princess on her first birthday, it was a privilege to be part of Penny’s celebration!

Thanks to David Manning Photographers for the beautiful pictures 🙂
