Our Guide to A Perfect Birthday!

We have a birthday coming up!
Yes, it’s a little bit away, but we thought it would be fun to plan the perfect birthday party– you know, the kind of party that feels like you’re in an episode of “Sex in the City.” The kind of party you would invite your closest girlfriends over to celebrate in a classy way.  The kind of party we’re going to be throwing for Three Pretty Bean’s 1st Birthday!

Where is the best place to start?


The invitation is the first thing we chose.  We headed over to Paperless Post to pick out the perfect invitation.  We narrowed our selections down to a few based on what type of party we wanted to throw.  We landed on a Brunch party (because we really LOVE brunch). So, we settled on the Heather and Lace card by Rifle Paper Co.  Once the invitation was in the bag, we were ready for the next step:  The Color Palette.

The color palette for our party is going to be:   MINT & GOLD


Gold Brushed Balloons – DIY – Pottery Barn Kids

Metallic “1” Balloon – Amazon


Floral arrangements can make or break the look of a party. For our birthday, we decided we want to go with something classic. We are going to rock slender gold painted vases with a single flower inside.

The Three Pretty Beans ladies love our mimosas!  We created a signature cocktail for our 1st birthday party. I mean, at how many 1st birthday parties can you drink?!


Three Pretty Beans Mimosa
2 oz. Champagne
1 oz. Passion Fruit Puree
Splash of fresh pineapple juice
Garnish with a mint sprig


 We will be cooking homemade waffles with assorted berries.  It’s the PERFECT brunch: little bit of cheating with some healthy fresh fruit! Of course, you can’t leave out the caffeine! We will be heading to our favorite kitchen accessory, our Keurig Rivo, and making lattes as for our guests!

We are so excited to celebrate our first birthday and we can’t wait to share it all with you! Thank you so much for following along for the past year.  Cheers to many years to come!

Wishing you  Health, Wealth &  Happiness,

Ashley Sutton
