Real Party: Punk Rock 1st Birthday

My friend Drea’s baby girl just turned 1. (How did this happen so quickly?!) She threw a party in the park, with such a fun and creative theme.

When Drea was brainstorming a theme, she knew it somehow had to acknowledge Lily’s hair. It is legendary and has been from the moment she was born. Here’s some proof…

For the first half of her little life, the hair stuck straight up. Now its long, beautiful little girl hair. But it was truly legendary.

When Eddie & Drea
snapped this picture of her in the bath, Drea knew right away they were going to do a punk rock theme.

This classic bath tub photo became this amazing invitation:

And now, onto the party details!

The party was held in a picnic area at a local park. Kids could run around on the adjacent playground, which was great.  Drea had lunch catered and it was delicious.

Drea covered the tables in the picnic area with plastic tablecloths.

Some punk hair extensions were available to guests as they entered the space.

punk rock party centerpieces

Centerpieces were galvanized buckets painted black stacked on a record with some cute signs stuck in them.  One featured a silhouette drawing showing “the hair” that Drea had done during this year.  So cute, and perfect for the park setting.

I built one of my standard displays with my favorite white shelf for the cupcakes.  Drea added monthly pictures of Lily’s first year in some black frames and hung inflatable guitars overhead.

Party favors were glow sticks.  Love the tags.

Lily was the cutest little cake eater. She dug in and was concentrating very hard. So precious.

There was no official costume contest. But if there had been, the winner would have been…

Happy, Happy Birthday Lily!
