Both Burke and Piper Jane adore our friend from church, Miss Hazel (they tell me a hundred times a day, “Baby Hazel so cu-ute!”). And I love Hazel’s mama, Liz (of retro garden baby shower fame- she was the mama-to-be). So helping Liz put together Hazel’s bicycle birthday party was a super fun joint venture!
As an added bonus, Jord was (unexpectedly) in town for this party. Between Jord taking pictures beforehand and Liz’s uber-talented photographer (Kara Pearson (Gwinn)), I didn’t take a single picture of this bike party, and you still get some serious party eye candy today.
Rounded out with a tower of sprinkle donuts and a pyramid of oh-so-scrumptious Duffeyrolls (if you’re ever in Denver, be sure to stop by this institution of breakfast deliciousness), there was a whole lineup of cereal and milk.
I’m still dreaming about the pink cake (made by our whoa-amazing-baker friend Katie). So good.
Vintage bikes (one grown up sized and two little Radio Flyer bikes) were the stars of the décor. The bunch of red balloons tied to the back of one of the Radio Flyers was quite the hit with the teeny guests. And the bike basket on the vintage bike served as a favor basket as well.
The mantel was full of blue, pink, and red. There was a vintage-y bike, a framed Curious George Rides a Bike print (in a wrapping paper covered mat), a “Hazel is 1!” sign, and the screen printed bunting.
We made the cupcake toppers, the food labels, the favor labels, the milk bottle labels, and the rest of the signage (a “How To Make Party Printables” blog series is in the works- look for Part 1 as soon as later this week!).
…screen printed onesies and t-shirts for the little kids (we heard from several grown up guests that we should’ve made grown up sized versions as well), screen printed notebooks for the bigger kids, and trail mix (in little screen printed bike bags) for the ‘really big kids’ (aka grown ups, who we really should’ve made shirts for).
The bike print is by Naptime Diaries (it was our birthday gift to Miss Hazel).
The vintage bike and vintage Radio Flyer bike were borrowed from Jinji Cycles in Denver.
The blue bike fabric is from the line Lucy’s Crab Shack (I ordered it from my lovely sponsor, Southern Fabric).
Happy first birthday Miss Hazel- fingers crossed that this party is the first of many Liz-and-Kirstin collaborations!
