Oli’s Shabby Chic Little Turtle Themed Party – 1st Birthday

Dainty Turtle Theme Party Ideas


The turtle has always been matched to powerful traits of determination, endurance and deep wisdom. Never in a haste, the turtle paces through life with small and simple steps of joy and acceptance. But beyond these seemingly tender temperament, is a resilient survivor ready to protect itself.

Combine these mystical nature of the turtle with a dainty synthesis of chic pastel and vintage perspective, you will have nothing less of a perfect theme for Oli’s first birthday and christening. Props to Event Stylist Dianne Khu Designs for putting together a very beautiful shebang. Read and re-live all the wonderful details of this party through the lenses of Playlight.

The signage at the entrance of Arcadia Clubhouse is pretty and straight forward; adorned by cottage-like elements below and soft shades of blue and yellow pompoms, enough to catch your attention.


The ceiling is a cumulus-like smorgasbord of charming party elements: pastel globes, dangling paper twists and patterned banderitas.
