Since I get a little intense when it comes to first birthdays, I thought it might be interesting to create a “La Fête” series where I blog about the process of party planning. I opt to have pretty parties, but I want to debunk that it reflects a high budget! The first part of the series will cover choosing a theme.
What’s a theme?
People tend to get confused with the word theme. A theme doesn’t always have to be something concrete like animals or cars, but if you like a combination of colors or patterns, that too can be a theme; it’s simply a little more abstract. A theme is what you want it to be. You can find inspiration from the littlest thing and make it great.
When I started thinking about Sienna’s first birthday, I knew I wanted a specific color – emerald. Being the design geek that I am, when emerald was announced to be the Pantone color of the year for 2013, I knew it was perfect since it is May’s birthstone. Then I went into brainstorming overload — that’s the most important part.
