Last week I introduced the Prep School Party Mini-Series: How to Host an Ombré Sunset First Birthday Party. And now we begin with Chapter 1: The Ombré Party Event Suite.
When I *finally* decided on the ombré party theme, I still agonized how to bring it all together and then it hit me one (late) night. You see, my all-time EVER favorite movie is Sleeping Beauty. I used to fall asleep to it every night when I was young (I’m not even going to say how old I was when I stopped). Sometimes when I can’t fall asleep, I recite it in my head (yes, I might know every word) and that’s where I got the idea for the quote at the bottom in the design: for she filled their lives with sunshine.
I had a lot of fun designing this suite and love how the colors lend themselves to being feminine and cheerful without being too cutesy. Included in the event suite are:
These Paper Source envelopes in (you guessed it) Sunshine match the suite perfectly.
And what’s a first birthday party without a

Here are all the items in action at the party. The banners, invite, menu, and welcome sign were printed on a matte textured cardstock and turned out so nice!
In my next post, I will cover the party supplies like paper plates, napkins, etc. that I used to coordinate with the whole look.
What do you think? Could you see yourself using a similar color scheme for an upcoming party?
