Every sweet little girl deserves an equally sweet birthday party. We’re especially amazed by this whimsical first birthday for Ella, the daughter of the over-the-moon creative mama Rachael. Rachael, who heads the awesome Nothing if Not Intentional blog, was inspired by the childhood innocence and pure, simple fun of pinwheels and incorporated them in totally festive ways throughout this spirited bash. Browse the results below and glean some inspiration for your next DIY party.

To get the party started, Rachael designed her very own fun and festive invites--for only $2.80! To personalize them, she included photos of the birthday girl as a baby and soon-to-be one-year-old. Find out more about the design in Rachael's detailed blog post.
