Pittsburgh Event Planner | Sienna's 1st Birthday Luau

If there is one thing {SHE} loves -- it's keeping it in the family! Recently we posted an ultra fab 60th surprise birthday party for Roberta + now we have the pleasure to feature her granddaughter's incredible 1st birthday luau.  The family's backyard provided the perfect setting to create a tropical paradise + it didn't hurt that the weather was literally picture-perfect!  Guests initially learned of this fantastic celebration with a one-of-a-kind invitation -- a gold foil tube containing colorful stationery + a Hawaii lei, which they were asked to wear on the birthday girl's day.  Upon arriving at the party, they were greeted by Polynesian dancers amongst a 15' tall balloon arch with "Aloha" on top.  The family's gazebo was converted to a 4-sided tiki hut bar with the cutest grass skirt stools.  The dessert table was far from simplistic which was comprised of a grass-covered table with not one, not two, but three birthday cakes -- because every fantastic one-year-old, like Sienna, needs 3 cakes! Behind delicately hung coconut cups with florals spilling over + gold painted pineapples.  The kiddos didn't go home empty-handed -- the favors were an array of colorful sand buckets filled to the brim with flip flops, fluorescent zinc sticks, sunglasses, flip-flop straws + a custom cookie. And as if that wasn't enough -- the day was topped off with Polynesian dancers perform with dances and song. Skysight Photography + Post Script Productions did such an unbelievable job, allowing all of us to commemorate the day!
