a first birthday party | sweet bunny love

my cousin, megan, and her family were just here visiting from colorado. like i mentioned yesterday, we truly enjoyed their visit and parks is missing his buddy, stella mae, lots today. from the moment i saw photos of stella's first birthday garden party in may, i knew i wanted to share with you all. it's just too cute for words... they celebrated in their backyard with a bunny themed party for the birthday girl. i hope you all enjoy this extraordinary birthday gathering.
''bunny food' treats! 
she also had some cute food for kids sitting out ~ annie's bunnies and peter rabbit pouches

she looks so excited! a nothing bundt cake is the perfect size for this occasion.
it was springtime and easter- so target was full of bunny goodness. (like this garland!)
she took clay pots and painted them with chalk paint for the labels + paper crate holders for the veggies. such a festive look
the one-year-old birthday photo shoot was also simply beautiful 

i love pink + peach + white florals
there was a station of 'notes for stella' to be placed in a time capsule for when she is older 
megan placed vintage quilts throughout the yard 
to make the lavander lemonade: a gallon of lemonade + 1/4 cup of this syrup
the straws and bunnies are from target and if you are in the denver area and have a small gathering coming up... please feel free to contact megan (meganlshreve@gmail.com) for floral arrangements. she is so talented and creates the most beautiful blooms
the colors of the balloons ~ pure perfection
her sister, ally, did the most incredible job with the balloons!! she owns her own business in columbus and travels throughout the state of ohio doing events. if you are interested, here is her page: cooks balloonery (i was blown away by the balloons!) 
isn't she just precious? 
 i love the print on the bunny ears (i used this print for my sister's baby shower) 
the sweetest cookies 
the area where she enjoyed her cake 

thank you so much, shreve family, for allowing me to share this special day 
it was so inspirational and simply gorgeous 
let me all tell you, not only is stella adorable but she has the best personality and is so sweet
(we just loved having them in charlotte) 

i also can't wait to share my sister's baby shower with you all soon 
enjoy your weekend
