To celebrate Mr. Darcy’s first birthday, I decided to be the Hostess with the Mostess. I am usually not very extravagant (except when it comes to my liberal use of glitter), but I do love to spoil my friends and my dogs, so this seemed like the perfect opportunity to throw a great shindig that everyone could enjoy.
For this party, I decided to ignore the fact that both Mr. Darcy and Mr. Bingley are boys and instead just jammed the party full of my favorite things. Old typewriters, shabby chic florals, and shades of pink all made appearances at this party in varying degrees.
That old typewriter from the centerpiece wasn’t originally pink. It was originally a very yellowed eggshell white. I taped off sections of the typewriter and spray painted them pink to add a fun vibe to this typewriter that I got for free from a junk pile at work. The quote pages are available for download at the end of this post.
I also made a delicious No-Bake Cheesecake with a Rice Krispie Treat crust! I’ve decided that it will be my signature dessert dish from now on because it was a big hit at the party.
It was an amazing party! We ate some delicious food, played several rounds of Bananagrams, and had a wonderful time watching Mr. Darcy stuff his face with puppy muffins.
