As a designer, I relish the chance to create unique printables, to push myself and challenge my abilities. Bird's Party Magazine offers me a chance to do just that. Not only we always have to come up with new and exciting ideas for each issue, but I also get to work with some incredible, talented stylists who's vision and unique events always push me to give it my all and venture out of my comfort zone.
So when the fabulous Linda told me about her inspiration and wish list for her daughter's sweet 16 birthday party, I jumped at the chance to create a set of special printables for the occasion. Something worthy of this special milestone. I loved the challenge, but was also super nervous and eager to please. After all, this was a young girl's real birthday bash, and a really important one at that!
Sweet 16 Birthday Party Ideas: Party Inspiration, Decor, Styling and Party Printables
Linda and I brainstormed a bit, but most of the inspiration came from Linda and her daughter Amanda. I have to say it is one of my fave designs to date, and Linda is one of my favorite stylist to work with. Such an easy-going, mega sweet and super talented professional. Made me feel mega happy, excited and a tad relieved too, when she told me Amanda "shrieked with joy" when she saw the designs of the printables! :)
So I'm beyond excited to shareall the photos from Amanda's special Sweet 16 Birthday Party with you. Amanda looked gorgeous in her party attire, so pretty, happy and so confident!! I totally adore all the details of this beautiful party!
Linda did an amazing job styling, baking it all, and worked with some incredible party vendors and professionals to make her vision come to life. See bottom of the post for all links. Swoon-worthy ♥
