I deem this mood board: sugar, Scandinavian spice, and all things nice. Clever, aren't I? Anyhow, I put this board together for my son's first birthday party. We decided to do something a little different than the typical summer barbeque and opted for an ice cream party. Maybe not the most baby friendly? However, I have quickly learned babies are happy with the simplest things, so we planned the party more for the adults than the kids.
Since Alder is named after a type of tree, I decided to work some a bit of a woodland theme into the party, but wanted to keep things more in line with the simple, Scandinavian look I gravitate towards. I think the clean lines play well with the cool tones of ice cream. The look is modern and graphic, yet is also somewhat reminiscent of a retro ice cream parlor.
I'm excited to share the photos and details of the party, as well as some DIY posts about it, over the next few weeks. I may have gone a wee bit overboard, as usual.
