Evie’s handmade first birthday

We don’t like to preach styling techniques at H&D, we like to get hands on and put our ideas into action… but by far they best thing about what we do is making such lovely friends along the way.

Kylie enlisted our styling services to prepare her little girl Evie’s nursery. We had so much fun decorating Evie’s space and Kylie loved it so much that we transformed her living and dining room too. Before we knew it, little Evie was turning one and we were a part of all the action again.

A Mini Mouse theme for the occasion was chosen by Kylie and we got preparing the sweets table to match – we designed and made everything from paper pompoms to party bags. Evie embodied all the cuteness of the theme perfectly and it was such a special day. Here our highlights:

Well we can’t say we’re responsible for this component, but we sure revelled in the cuteness of this brood!

The food and decor
Evie’s parents put on quite a spread of salads, a delicious BBQ and Kylie even made a centrepiece of Mini Mouse oreo cookie pops.

Kylie also organised the tiered cake from a local cake maker.

They were the perfect accompaniments to the sweet table we put together.

The setting
The surrounds were idilic and both the happy bubs and us big kids had a lovely, relaxed afternoon on the shores of Manly Dam (in Sydney’s Northern beaches). After a big meal and a communal sugar high, there was no better spot to recline and unwind into the sunset. Even with a ginormous goose-monster that decided to raid the leftovers.

Hope you enjoyed our highlights from Evie’s special day and we were able to inspire some handmade party cuteness. Thank you to Evie’s parents Kylie and Jono for letting us be a part of the occasion. We loved adding some of our styling touches and we look forward to sharing many more birthdays with Miss Evie!
