The inspiration for my youngest daughter’s first birthday party came from a pack of balloons my sister gave me. She had her daughter’s first birthday and when it was over, she handed me a pack of mixed color balloons that were left over. I laughed and said they looked like polka dots. The rest is history!

For Francesca’s (Franki) party I wanted to keep it simple but fun! The dollar store was my best friend when planning this party. I used different color dessert plates to create a polka dotted wall. The best part was that when the party was over, I was able to keep the plates and use them for a different event!

I found the plastic table clothes at the dollar store. They were perfect and went great with the theme! For the center piece, I used a small, solid colored metal bucket and put tissue paper and a polka dot hat in the center. Simple and easy.
