These 5 Easy DIY party decorations are the cutest way to add charm to your little girl’s 1st birthday party but can easily be adapted to a little boy’s party theme as well with just a few modifications. Heck, you could use these ideas for bridal and baby showers, a graduation party, just about any celebration you might have!
For this post, I clearly had a little girl in mind. I had so much fun making these decorations for my great niece, Amelia. As if you couldn’t tell, it was her first birthday party; it’s been a LONG time since I’ve had a little girl to fuss over and make pretty, super girly things so I may have gone overboard-but I loved every minute of it! And, she is definitely worth it!
Just look at this adorable tutu for her high chair. I mean, this is some serious froo froo right here! Amelia looked so stinkin’ cute in her little tutu outfit her mom ordered from Etsy, coupled with the tutu on her high chair loaded with pink flowers, it was picture perfect!

I created this backdrop which was used behind the precious highchair, I don’t know about you but I think it was equally adorable. I adore the shades of pink, white and gold color theme that Ali, Amelia’s mom decided to use for her party. It truly could not have been more adorable!
To add even more charm, as if the first two weren’t enough, I made this banner to display pictures of her at each milestone month throughout her first year. Does anyone actually print pictures anymore? Well, I did for several of these projects and I’m glad I did, they are so sweet!
(Sigh) I’m on cuteness overload! This 1 filled with pictures taken throughout Amelia’s first year is a perfect accent for any party. I actually did similar collages for my kids through their teenage years, although they probably thought it was silly at the time, there’s nothing silly about this one 🙂
To top off the pink & gold theme, we used an “A” for Amelia that is full of sparkle! This glittered A served as a centerpiece for her gift table and could easily be hung on the wall or displayed on a cake or dessert table too. Another great thing about this one is it will look great in her room after the party, win win!!
Well, with all this glitter & frills, pink & gold, I think I have my froo-froo girly fix out of my system for a while. At least until the next little one celebrates and Aunt Lesa will be at it again!
I hope you are inspired to make one or all of these projects for a little princess (or prince) in your life. Don’t forget to pin these for later and like/share on Facebook and Instagram too! Leave me a message letting me know how your projects go, I’d love to hear from you!
Until next time,
