This beautiful and whimsical San Antonio garden party is truly what all little girls’ dreams are made of! In celebration of her daughter’s first birthday, Nicola Bathie created a wonderland in her backyard complete with hundreds of loosely arranged colorful blooms, an afternoon picnic fare, melodies from a string quartet, as well as the most adorable candy cart and tot-sized hot air balloon both decked out in an array of pastel-hued balloons.
As an established Interior and Jewelry Designer, Nicola has a natural eye for the design elements that went into planning this birthday celebration. Inspiration for her garden party theme sprung from our Garden Tales Collection that features watercolor artwork by the talented hand of Dixie artist Gina Langford. You can shop the invitation that Nicola chose for the party here. We love how Nicola incorporated the invitation’s design into part of the party’s decor!
There are so many stunning elements of this celebration that are noteworthy! Nicola had the beautiful paper mache hot air balloons that suspended from the trees made on site just hours before the party began! Also, be sure not to miss the party favor table, displaying individual watering cans with little seed packets of poppy seeds for all of the party guests to take home with them. We invite you to scroll through the following images of this precious afternoon and dare you not to be inspired by all of the beauty!
