We threw Paisley an “Olivia the Pig” birthday party on Saturday and it was a blast! I had so much fun planning this party and love the way everything turned out. I chose to have it at a boutique in our town. They have a party room in the back of the store and it was just perfect for the amount of guests we had. I am so thankful that a lot of family and friends were able to come despite this crazy winter weather in Oklahoma.
 I am so thankful for my dear friend, Becca, who designed a lot of the party decor! She makes our Christmas cards every year and is also the designer of my blog. Check out her business here. :) She was such a huge help and always comes up with the cutest graphics! The invites (above) as well as everything else were exactly what I had in mind.

This little table was right when you walked in. Goodie boxes and a few gifts were here.

The gable boxes were from Birthday Express. My mom and I had fun putting these together. We included a few of Paisley’s favorite things; red heart shaped sunglasses, candy, fruit roll up, bottle of apple juice, chap stick, and hand sanitizer. :)

I love how open the room was. They provided the chair covers and sashes as well as the paper lanterns which I thought was very sweet and added character to the room.

Water bottle labels were made by JJD.

This banner was from Birthday Express. We weaved in jute and secured with tacks.
I will be sharing the punch recipe tomorrow on the blog! My mom and I serve this punch at about every party or shower we host and it is always a hit. :)

Paper straws were from a local store in our town.
The pig snouts were so easy to make! All you need is craft foam, dowel rods, scissors, a sharpie, and hot glue! I made all of these in about 10 minutes.
Everyone seemed to enjoy them for props. :)

Our table centerpieces where pictures of Olivia, Paisley, and Rule of Life signs. 
The picture frames were an IKEA on Amazon steal. I got each for under $2.
All of the chalkboard Rule of Life and Olivia signs were designed by JJD. Please do not steal these images and prints.

The signs in the frames were one of my favorite decorations. :)

 The banner was also designed by JJD. I used a hole punch and attached it all with red glitter tulle.

The cake table set up was so fun! The cake stand is actually my soap holder in my kitchen. You may have seen it here or here on the blog. :)

The plush Olivia pig is from Zulily. I bought the book at Target and had all of the guests sign it and include a birthday wish for Paisley. Keepsakes like that are my favorite and I am sure she will cherish it someday. :)

I was so impressed with the cake. It was perfect and tasted amazing! We had white on top and chocolate on bottom. My mom ordered it from a local bakery (who also made our wedding cake) and they never seem to disappoint. The cake topper my mom had also found off of Amazon.

My mom made the cupcakes and the toppers were from JJD. Napkins, plates, and balloons were bought from Birthday Express.

My Aunt Tammy and Paisley. Pais wasn’t too hip on the party until we blew out candles and opened presents. I am hoping that next year she will enjoy it a little more. :)

    It’s all really cute, but the pig noses were amazing! And including water is great, you don’t really need sugary drinks at birthday parties on top of the birthday cake, it’s kind of like asking for a sugar coma.
