A Modern Ice Cream Social First Birthday Party

Graphic designer Mara Dawn Dockery is one stylish momma, so when it came time to plan her son Alder's first birthday, no typical party would do. "We decided to do something a little different than the typical Summer barbecue and opted for an ice cream party," Mara says. "Since Alder is named after a type of tree, I decided to work a bit of a woodland theme into the party but wanted to keep things more in line with the simple, Scandinavian look I gravitate toward."

"I think the clean lines play well with the cool tones of ice cream. The look is modern and graphic yet is also somewhat reminiscent of a retro ice cream parlor. I deem it sugar, Scandinavian spice, and all things nice." DIY decor, delicious ice cream flavors (cake batter, honey lavender, salted caramel, and strawberry basil), and one cute birthday boy add up to a simple but memorable party that was as much fun for the adults as it was for the babies!
