I’ve always enjoyed being able to use beautiful florals to tell a clients’ story so when I was approached by Rebecca to create the florals for her daughter’s 1st birthday, I couldn’t be more excited to work with her to bring the story of their beautiful family to life.
The birthday party was held at Mulvaney’s Building & Loan in Sacramento, CA. Like us, they choose to use locally grown products meaning we understand their ethos perfectly, making this such an enjoyable venue to work at.
Rebecca came up with the theme “Sweet as a peach” which we loved so we decided to use the various colors in a peach as a jumping point for the color scheme.
The industrial style backdrop of the venue paired with the soft tones of the color palette gave a beautiful soft contrast allowing the florals to really stand out.
This hanging door install made for a great place to hang individually tied florals. It really shows that everything can be made into something amazing with a little foliage and a pop of color!
The table centers used locally grown coral charm peonies, ranunculus, roses and cherry blossom branches. Glass vases were used to allow light to pass through the bright airy industrial space making the florals look like they were floating. On alternating tables individual glass bottles were used with single stem flowers to create height and interest.
Our Moon Arch was decorated in a loose whimsical way giving the perfect backdrop for family photos!
A 1st birthday wouldn’t be complete without a cake but Cora was lucky enough to have a whole dessert table! Floral installations adjourned Cora’s name above the table and with sweet treats provided by Freeport Bakery a few decorative floral touches and of course, peaches (!) completed the theme!
Thank you to Rebecca and her family for letting us be a part of such an important milestone for Cora! Happy Birthday young lady!!
