Eva is 1! ("Hooray Baby!" Party in Hot Pink and Orange)
ABOUT THE PARTY: Eva was already showing the signs of becoming a cool, New York City kid at 1, so her mother wanted a 1st birthday theme that was vibrant, fun and cool - just like Eva. However, since the party was being attended mostly by adults, she wanted to find a balance between it being a party for Eva and something nice for adults to attend. The party was planned for a Sunday as an open house with 60 adults and 14 kids ranging from 6 months to 4 years old, and was being held at Eva's grandparent's townhouse on the Upper East Side of Manhattan.
HOW THEY SET TO CELEBRATE: “I looked around for fun, contemporary tableware, but everything was too adult for a 1st birthday. I ended up leaving it to the last minute, and a friend told me about Set To Celebrate. I looked at the website and was thinking about the "Sage Dots" tableware, and called Set To Celebrate to get some advice about what I could put together for the party. Jaclynn suggested I also look at the "Hooray Baby!" design - it was perfect. She also helped me decide on the complimentary colors of hot pink and orange. (Hooray Baby! Lunch Plates - 6 Pkgs of 10; Hooray Baby! Lunch Napkins - 2 Pkgs of 20; Hot Magenta Lunch Napkins - 2 Pkgs of 20; Hot Magenta Beverage Napkins - 1 Pkg of 50) We ordered 1 Fuschia Moire Tablecloth (Moire Tablecloth-$9.50) - We cut a 14" strip as a runner for the buffet table and used the rest over the sideboard for sodas and desserts. We ordered Medium Buffet Basket that Set To Celebrate customized with the party colors for the favors (Medium Buffet Basket-Custom - $25.00) and tied balloons to it. We used hot pink and orange balloon bouquet's throughout the main room and dining room which created big splashes of color (1 Pkg Pearl Magenta Balloons & 1 Pkg Jewel Orange Balloons - $2.95 for Package of 10 Balloons & Ribbon), and of course we had the Tissue Balloon Holder in pink and fuchsia for the buffet table." (Tissue Balloon Holder - $8.50)
"I can't say enough about the photo banner (Custom Photo Banner with 7 characters and 4 pictures-$15.00). It was just beautiful and really fun. Set To Celebrate made the party so easy to put together, and their tips and ideas for setting the buffet table made everything look picture perfect."
Additional Items: 3 Packages of 24 Forks, 2 Package of 24 Spoons, 3 Pkgs 24 Hot Magenta Hot/Cold Cups and 2 packages of Hot Magenta Guest Towels for the Bathroom.
TOTAL SET TO CELEBRATE COST (For 60 Guests): $148.41
“Set to Celebrate was the best solution for my design-discerning taste. The coordination of colors and schemes as well as the quality were unique and completely reasonable. Everything from the table to the balloons looked customized and set.. so all we had to do was celebrate!” Emmanuel, Eva's Mom - New York, NY
