Ava's Vintage Carousel {First Birthday} Party

Planning your child's very first birthday party is such a huge milestone.  As an event planner, Ava's first birthday party is no different from planning a wedding.  And because it's such an important event all details should be considered.  From the invitation to location to the food you will serve, you have to consider every detail no matter how large or small.  Ava's birthday took place at the historic Carousel at the Santa Monica Pier!!  It was the perfect venue for adults and kids!

The inspiration for this party was the carousel.  To keep with the vintage theme and to make things colorful, I chose pastel shades of pink and blue (main colors used) and green and yellow (accents).  My hubby, Steve, and I wanted to keep within our budget so we incorporated a lot of DIY projects.  All the hard work certainly paid off!  Not only was the party a success, but our guests had such a fun time!
