Eden Jade Turns 1! | Featured on Style Me Pretty Living

Full disclosure (and if you’ve been following me for awhile, you already know) this is a very belated post!

My sweet mini turned one last June. It was probably one of the most surreal days of my life. I could not believe my baby was one year old and that I had been a parent for a full 365 days!  Nearly, since the day she was born, I knew I wanted to throw a big birthday bash for her. I’m so glad I followed through. It was wonderful to surrounded by the tribe of people who love our little girl and helped us through our first year of parenthood.

For her party, I decided to stick with a fun palette of pinks, peaches and corals, and of course include lots beautiful florals. The City Hippy Studio created the invitation based around the monthly photos I took of Eden. Each month I would create the number out of flowers and lay her next to it (you can see each monthly photo here). I loved how the invitation and all the other signage for the party turned out.

Puj baby was gracious enough to use their retail space as our venue. The concrete floors and white walls created a perfect backdrop to the bright colors.

Something Borrowed provided the beautiful furniture for the lounge area. Pink chairs, cream sofa, and fun throw pillows created a cozy area for guests to hang out.

Since the party was late morning, we decided to have brunch! Fresh fruit, cheese, crackers, yogurt bar, mimosa’s and bloody mary’s were all DIY by my family. Little Red’s Bakeshop provided yummy pastries, the smash cake, and the sugar cookies that we gave out as favors. Dessert for the guests were Coco Donuts.

The floral arrangements had a mix of some of my favorite blooms: Peonies, dahlias, garden roses, and cosmos to name a few.

I loved this “stats sign” Jena from The City Hippy Studio made. It makes the perfect keepsake!

Obviously, extremely biased, but she’s just the BEST!

It had been a warm spring, so at the end of June Portland had both locally grown peonies and dahlias! What?!?

My name is Kim, I’m a Portland native and the owner and designer of Swoon Floral Design. Being creative has always been a significant part of my life. From a young age I was always looking for something to design, repurpose, and create. With a background in interior design and horticulture, Swoon allows me to combine my passion for flowers and foliage, color, texture, and fabulous spaces by creating one of a kind arrangements for some of the most beautiful events in Oregon. Whether you are drawn to lush garden style arrangements or simple blooms in eclectic bottles, I will ensure each creation reflects your unique style + aesthetic. I work closely with my clients, making sure their wedding or event is the most cherished of occasions. When not playing with beautiful blooms, you can find me spending time with my family and friends, on a hike, checking out local farmers markets, and exploring the Portland "foodie" scene.
