Hallie's 1st Birthday Inspiration

I have been planning Hallie's 1st Birthday since I found out she was a girl...and that's no April Fools Joke!

I knew I wanted the theme to be a Royal Affair and I knew I wanted the color scheme to be Lavender, Blush and Gold! If you follow me on Facebook, you know that I got started making the garland yesterday! (If you are not following me, why not!? lol)

So without further ado, here is my inspiration board for Hallie's First Birthday:
1. My garland is kind of similar! Though The lavender is the main color with accents of the blushy pink and gold.

2.  I know Hallie will be wearing Freshly Picked Moccs, just unsure which pair yet, because I am between 2 dresses!

3. I will be making all kinds of finger sandwiches in princess shapes. A crown, a castle, a glass slipper!

4.  Hallie will be wearing a crown headband, though I am leaning toward a gold one!

5. This is the cake I had in mind, only in lavender! I just found out my cake lady moved, though thanks to many great friends on Facebook, I have received plenty of advice for back ups and am in the process of getting quotes!

6. I love the idea of putting a tutu around her high chair! *Something I bet many of you didn't know about me- I used to own my own Tutu company! So you know...if you ever find yourself in need of a tutu, you know where to go!

7. I love the idea of giving the boys foam swords as favors! It fits in with the theme without being girly!

8.  My amazing hubby already agreed to help me make signs to go up the walk to the house! I have Hallie's story all ready to be painted on!

9.  Purple Princess invitations of course! Can't wait to get Hallie's picture made to go on these babies!

What were your first birthday themes?!
