Pastel Ice Cream Picnic Party
This is what Esthefany shared about the party:
“Zariah’s first birthday party is one to remember. I truly enjoyed this set up. From brainstorming & researching, building the furniture used to putting it all together.
The pastel ice cream theme is always a good idea for a first birthday during the summer months. I’m so grateful that my client trusted me with this vision. This set up took me about a full month of planning. I truly wanted to challenge myself by building my own furniture for this set up.
I want to give special thanks to my partner @Anthonyiciano who got very crafty with these DIY tables, candy cart & white wooden frame. Also, a million thanks to @ jaimecostiglio and @anawhitediy for sharing the DIY plans for the kid sized street vendor/candy cart that was super easy to make and follow through. This birthday was definitely one for the books for me.”
