I am very happy to introduce to you our first birthday guide curated by Dovilé Mikeléniené - a designer from Lithuania, a mum of two little girls and a person behind adorable Gera Bloga shop, facebook and website. She was so kind to share with us her ideas and inspirations while preparing a first birthday party for her twin girls. Thank you Dovilé!

Parents want only the best for their children. So when this big celebration comes knocking on your door, well, it is kind of a headache deciding how to astonish them. We want it to be simple yet mind-blowing, stylish yet colorful and vivid. So how you can make this happen without your hair turning gray?

Create your vision. It dictates the whole preparation for the party. Do you want a cozy and nice meeting with closest friends and family in your back yard or an over the top celebration in some fascinating children’s games park? Think about the venue, theme, decorations, menu, what your baby should wear and, of course, prepare some children’s activities.

As I have two girls, I organize a little princess-like tea party in our garden. Here is my vision:

Also, it is very important for mom to look pretty, too :)
