Darling just got taken to an entirely new level with this “Sweet as a Peach”–themed first birthday party. I mean, come on. A custom-built hideaway made by dear ol’ Dad just for the occasion? I just melted into a pile of mush. Trust me, it only takes one little peek at all the pretty captured by the auntie behind the camera (Tabitha of Kindled Photography) and you’ll be melting right alongside me. It’s one cute as can be party. Keep scrolling to check it out!
”When it was time to start planning my niece Gwyneth June’s first birthday party, my sister and I began brainstorming party themes,” says Tabitha Brawley of Kindled Photography. “Kinsley, my sister, suggested incorporating the colors peach and silver. Gwyn loves to eat peaches, and because one of Gwyn’s many nicknames is ‘peach girl,’ we decided a peach-themed party would be perfect!”
“The lunch menu included all things peachy: a basil, bacon, and peach baked brie; peach and walnut chicken salad on croissants; a blueberry and peach salad; and Carolina peach sangria for the adults,” says Brawley. “We bought a digital watercolor peach from Etsy seller CornerCroft, and we customized it in Photoshop to make our own paper products. The paper peach for the peach sugar scrub favors said, ‘You’re a peach, thank you!’ and the one wrapped around the utensils and napkins read, ‘Everything is peachy!’”
“While Kinsley and I were busy with the details of the party, Gwyn’s daddy had something even better up his sleeve,” Brawley says. “Chad enjoys woodworking, and by using plans from The Handmade Home, he built a custom hideaway as a birthday gift to Gwyn. The hideaway was such a great space for the children at the party to play. Even the adults discussed wanting to curl up with a good book and relax in the space. When it was time for the smash cake, Chad and Kinsley joined Gwyn on the deck of the hideaway, which gave the guests a great view of the birthday girl devouring her cake!”
