A baby elephant theme is so sweet for a first birthday!  Tanya, of Life's Little Celebrations, explained how elephants make her think of memories of the first year, elephant families walking together holding trunks, and little (pink) peanuts!  With all of those elements incorporated into the party, Tanya designed a meaningful and adorable first birthday for her daughter, Rebekah!

I love the sweet cake~

Tanya put together a beautiful sweets display as the focal point~ the details are perfect!

Tanya added a ferris wheel with pink pails filled with veggies as a complement to the delicious sweets~

The pink sugared peanuts are a great idea~

The felt elephants are so charming~ as is the beautiful birthday girl with her family!

I also love how they made a photo canvas to share each stage of Rebekah's first year!

Guests were treated to lovely party favors as a thank you for celebrating with sweet Rebekah~

What a precious party!  Thank you for sharing with us, Tanya!  Find more info on this party and great party ideas from Tanya at Life's Little Celebrations.

Hi Brynn!

The cake topper was made out of fondant and it was made by Cake Avenue. Here is the link to Cake Avenue (she made the cake, too).
I hope that helps! Thank you for stopping by!
