When it comes to being a mom, there are a lot of things that we share with our children.  And sometimes that includes birthdays too!

All of my littles have come about a week early.  And with baby no. 4's due date being on May 14th, it wouldn't surprise me at all if his due date ended up being on my May 5th birthday.  And as crazy as I think that would be, I also think it would be a ton of fun!  Especially since I just saw how it could be done when I was asked to host a combined mother and daughter birthday party for my dear friend Roxana Baker.  

So, if you too share a birthday with your own little cutie or have a friend that does and you want to throw them a party, here's how I put together some beautiful combined mother and daughter birthday party ideas for my dear friend and her precious little girl.


Beautiful Combined Mother and Daughter Birthday Party Ideas 


For our first combined mother and daughter birthday party idea, we kept things very feminine and went with modern shades of pink, gold, and cream for our color theme.

When I hosted this party, it was still pretty cold.  So we rented out a local studio space, Studio Wyld, to host our combined mother and daughter birthday party.

The room was decorated with darling gold and cream fans, tassel banners, balloons, white spray painted animals with light pink party hats, and gold geometric shapes to give the party a modern and youthful feel.

Party guests sat at tables that were decorated with gold and cream place settings from Zurchers and simple arrangements of fern leaves and baby's breath that we placed in vintage ice cream glasses.

Along with the pasta and soup dinner bar, there was also a desert table filled with the most divine custom made pink ombre macaroons and hand painted sugar cookies from Plum Cakery along with the perfect buttercream cake with deep raspberry colored interior from Provo Bakery.

A photo booth was also set up for anyone who wanted to take pictures.  And any moms and daughters that used the photo booth were given floral or green leaf crowns from A Golden Garden to wear in their pictures and then have as a keepsake from the night's festivities.

And, to send the guests off on a sweet note, each person was given a party favor bag that they could fill with salt water taffy and take home to enjoy later.

Over the past couple of years, I have thrown quite a few parties (which you can see H E R E).  And though I have loved them all, this combined mother and daughter birthday party was one of my absolute favorites because of its sweetness and simplicity. Two elements that I think being a mom is all about!

Hope you have a wonderful weekend!
