Happy Birthday Lucca!
My good friend Eds sent me these beautiful pictures of her nephews 1st birthday party.
Isn't everything just gorgeous? The attention to detail is utterly inspiring. Eds shared with me that her sister wanted to incorporate a yellow theme into the celebration to show their family's support for Philippine presidential candidate Noynoy Aquino. For those of you who are not familiar with Philippine politics, yellow has been the official color of the Aquino family since the assasination of Benigno Aquino Sr. in 1983. Noynoy's mother, the former President Corazon Aquino always wore yellow and for millions of Filipinos yellow is a symbol of hope, courage and peace.
As always, presentation is paramount. And don't think the perfect backdrop by Arturo Luz goes unnoticed!
The snacks are simple and familiar but everything seems so special when repackaged in an intricate and personal way.
I am absolutely loving the play on the bumble bee stripes and the honeycomb on the paper parts. And, the yellow with gray is a subtle alternative to the traditional bumble bee black and yellow color story.
This table below is just delightful. Inviting and enticing. The "lemon drop" jelly is such a wonderful idea.
Lucca , every year is a gift.
May you have many , many more special celebrations ahead.
