A beautiful fall foliage was the perfect background to this outdoor first birthday. This event was crafted with both adults and kids in mind and we made sure there was something for everyone to do. Along with classic outdoor games such as large chess, Connect Four, and badminton kids were fully engaged with wildlife face paint while adults socialized and enjoyed music from Drew Angus playing all country-pop favorites.
To create a family moment that was more than instagrammable, we used an old existing tire swing and had out florist work her magic in creating a beautiful backdrop for first birthday photos. To match the ambiance, the freshest seasonal ingreredients were used throughout the event. From passed bites, roasted onsite chickens, and more, the buffet that was created was seamlessly aligned with the rustic and enchanted theme that embodied the tablescape of both the adults table and kid table. This was completed with vintage blue plates mixed with stunning and bright florals that was ultimately breathtaking at dusk white the wicker basket lanterns floating above.
