Once upon a time… just eight years ago our sweet Miss Milla Day was born and she filled our world with sunshine. As we’re celebrating another one of Milla’s love filled trips around the sun, we’re looking back on last year’s celebration with some of our favorite little people.
For Milla’s seventh birthday bash we put together a backyard party that would have the Evil Queen herself asking the “mirror, mirror on the wall, what party was the funnest of all?” We took inspiration from Snow White’s classic dress and created a color palette that consisted of deep shades of red and blue, along with hints of white as crisp as the apples our little ones bobbed for that afternoon.
When it was time to eat, our own Snow White and all her guests sat on red velvet pillows and enjoyed tasty treats on a table that was just the right height and resembled a cottage door from our friends at Folklore Rentals. The table, along with Snow White’s woodland friends, were adorned in gorgeous florals made of eucalyptus, dahlias, ranunculus, and garden roses and were done by mom at Twigg Botanicals and accented with the cutest of lanterns the dwarves themselves would have held in the coal mines. For additonal activities we had the kids search for mini apples hidden within the trees in the yard. We also printed off cards with names of each of the seven dwarves and had the little ones see if they could pair up items that would represent each of them, such as a bag of tissues for sneezy and sleep masks for sleepy. They had so much fun trying to figure out what went with who! We completed the day with a good ol’ fashioned game of chase where our lone huntsman tried to collect the girls hearts by tagging them. Just so much fun hearing all their giggles and seeing their excitement!
In honor of our dear little Milla’s eighth birthday today, we’re inviting you to join us on our jaunt down memory lane and scroll through pictures from from a day that truly was as special as her and may have just ended with her little brother climbing into the apple barrel..because who can resist getting into your birthday suit for a good soak?! Ha! So grateful my sweet talented friend Merrily from Merrily Photo was there to capture it all!
