When it comes to baby’s first birthday party, we tend to think in terms of pink and blue. Not so with the party for Martha Stewart’s granddaughter. She chose a beautiful palette in soft neutrals and white,which was perfect for highlighting the marzipan animals that stole the show. (Click here for party details.) White and clear balloons gave a festive feel while being unobtrusive. Gorgeous (and no doubt, deilcious) animal cookies made just the right party favors.
This beatiful tablescape would not be difficult to do for your little one’s birthday. Just keep the cake neutral (caramel cake, maybe), adorn with sweet animals, either edible or figurines, add soft-hued balloons and animal decor, and bake or purchase animal-shaped cookies. You might even add a touch of very neutral animal print, like our leopard ribbon, to tie around the favors.
