Pinwheel 1st Birthday Party + {Giveaway}

I was {so} excited when I found out I was getting to help plan a first birthday party with this adorable theme: Pinwheels!! Our inspiration started with this precious pink and aqua pinwheel invitation from Carli at DimplePrints, which she turned into an entire printable party package for us!
Guests were greeted with a sweet little favor table where all the kids received a "Thanks for spinning by" pinwheel and candy bag. I  made lots of mini pinwheels to use throughout the party - you can see them here as a banner strung across the favor basket.
The main food table is usually the most enjoyable part for me to plan because I love engulfing myself in all the tiny details and clean rows! We used lots more mini pinwheels on this table, including as food clips for our bags of pretzels and as cupcake toppers. I also made partially edible pinwheels by attaching a paper pinwheel to pink candy sticks! Finally, I made two over-sized pinwheels and put them in vases as the flanks for this table display.

We added custom pink and aqua pinwheel cakepops by April's Cake Pops to our table, which are always a yummy, adorable addition! I also embellished aqua lollipops with a simple pink "P" and ribbon for another cute and easy dessert.

I'm always looking for that "special touch" piece to pull my main food table together. That's why I was so excited when I stumbled across these adorable pom pom garlands by ThreadingMarigolds. They are well-made and were the perfect finishing touch draped across the front of our table. {SO CUTE!}  And you can enter to win one of your own today! Details below.

As always, the printables paved the way for coordinated decor throughout the party space! I made a sweet "Presley Kate is One" highchair banner, in addition to the "Favors" and "Gifts" banners for their respective tables.

Threading Marigolds is giving away this adorable spring pom pom garland to one lucky reader - great for parties, nurseries, photo props and more! Easy entry below and be sure to share with your friends!
