1st Birthday soiree, boho-style, at The Loft of Elements preserved

Having a little time to catch up blogs from events over the past year, we're still in awe of the beautiful 1st birthday party we hosted last April, 2019, for a beautiful baby girl.

Contacted by Planner/Designer Mary, owner of Sweet Jorys, working directly with her client, we hosted this event with inclusion of all of our in-house furniture, farm tables and chairs, vintage buffet/sideboard, and armoire, and baker's rack, all with shelves and display area available. The creativity Mary brought to the event was something else, and no details were missed including the Make Your Own Spa Bar; before guests left, each enjoyed collecting hand-scented bath salts in individual jars with their names labeled on each jar.

The guest of honor enjoyed her smash cake, created by Bon Vivant Cakes, with her high chair decorated with a sweet little garland made by Mary, placed in front of a beautiful kid-sized teepee, also a rental from Sweet Jory's.

Our vintage buffet was styled with numerous pastries, cookies, macarons, and sweets from Beth's Little Bake Shop while a beautiful, colorful balloon garland hung overhead the buffet. Bon Vivant Cakes also provided the beautiful layered cake for all the guests to enjoy!

Grey Boy Shop provided cloth guitars and other items that children could color in the children's play area, while everyone wanting to enjoy photo booth memories took their turn for the Last Photo Booth photo booth.

And, because Maira Ochoa, owner at Maira Ochoa Photography captured all the beauty of the day, we have so many photos to share with you of this special 1st birthday event! Even though it was a snowy day in April, it didn't dampen the joy family shared being together to celebrate this little girl's 1st birthday! We were happy for the opportunity to host this beautiful event.

Knowing that one of our marketing opportunities with The Celebration Society would be thrilled with photos and an event recap of this birthday for their Chicago Parties magazine, I submitted photos, following permission from the client and the photographer, and it was chosen as one of the selections for the Spring, June 2019 issue of The Celebration Society Parties Magazine, found here. Take a look at this beautiful spread.

So, when you begin thinking about celebrating baby's 1st birthday, the possibilities are limitless when you book your event at The Loft of Elements Preserved. We'll act as your planner, stylist and coordinator, or we'll simply sit back and enjoy hosting your event with the vendors you've chosen! Let us know how we can help!
