a french inspired brunch~Luc’s 1st birthday party

Luc 1st Birthday party 048

So our little Luc turned one October 1st. Wow, that was a fast year!!! We hosted a little french inspired brunch to celebrate. My inspiration for the party was black & white, all things mini and a nod to celebrate the season.

In lieu of gifts, we asked for a donation to our Atlanta Children’s hospital to give more kids the chance to celebrate birthdays

To keep with the black & white theme, I used black kraft paper on a big roll that I cut to length and found dustless chalk for kids {& adults} to draw with.
Mini black & white stripe bunting. I was able to cut two flags at a time using pinking shears and just fabric glued between seam binding. I think I cut about 100 flags, but it went really fast.

Since I couldn’t rightfully take a picture of 90% empty platters of food after the party, imagine a black kraft paper topped island with all white platters and tiered stands,  piled high with yummyness!
