In collaboration with House Of R in Omaha, Nebraska
Hey Beautiful Readers! Brody and I took a Mommy/Daddy trip back to Scottsdale this week! While I was there, I was able to round up Miss Reina Ruby’s First Birthday Party! Let’s just say, the day was truly magical. My vision for her Big Day came to life thanks to House of R in Omaha, Nebraska. In collaboration with them, we were able to throw Miss Reina a Boho birthday party with a twist of citrus. Our sweet Summer Baby was showered with such love and I am so thankful for everyone that came together to celebrate the joy that is Reina. We still cannot believe our little angel baby is ONE.
I definitely am a planner. When Reina was only a couple months old, I already started to have ideas of what I wanted her first birthday bash to be like. She is a July baby, just like her Mama, so the idea of something very citrus and rich in colors was dreamy to me. Her nursery room is filled with soft pinks, blushes, neutrals, oranges, and golds. I wanted to bring those colors to life for her Big Day. I started to be a big fan of more simplistic, earthy tones this year. We renovated a few areas of my home and I found myself always drawing inspiration from dried natural plants like pampas grass. I wanted to incorporate that same style into her party.
I contacted Rachel at House of R in May to see if they would be interested in collaborating with me in some way to celebrate Reina. As soon as I walked into the venue space, I knew I was somewhere special. The space is located in the District 66 area of Omaha with so much to offer. There are various décor pieces, table settings, and unique character corners which leaves the client feeling like any vision can come to life. House of R is a clean and sanitized space that holds not only intimate events, but corporate gatherings, meetings, and team building events. House of R offers all-inclusive packages which saves the client time and money. They also offer venue rental only which is an hourly rate. Experience To-Go Boxes are available and can be pre-made or build your own.
Reina’s Boho Birthday Party
I had an all-inclusive event with House of R and it was amazing! It was so nice to know that Rachel and her team had everything covered for me and really didn’t have to lift a finger. As a busy Mama who runs her own business, I am SO thankful for that. It allowed me to focus on Reina and her day and not what I had to do to set up the party. It took so much weight off our shoulders and allowed us to be present with our close friends and family. Rachel and her staff did an excellent job at preparing and serving drinks and food with the necessary safety precautions. She was always there if I had a question and made us feel so warm and welcome.
Fun Services for Nebraska and Iowa made the most gorgeous balloon arch! They also added pretty balloons all over the event space. I love the colors they chose and how well it complimented the color palette.
Alphalit Omaha brought the “ONE<3” light-up letters to help celebrate Miss Reina. They were the first thing I saw when I walked into the venue and it was beautiful! Rachel hung Reina’s month photos right above the lights which meant a lot to me. Alphalit Omaha is ran by a few sorority sisters of mine (who happen to be actual sisters themselves!). I love supporting Boss Babes in business but especially local Boss Babes that I have a personal connection to. Alphalit Omaha sets up and tears down the letters for any event and allows guests to use them for a minimum of two-hour increments. These letters are perfect for graduation parties, weddings, birthday parties, baby showers, sorority bid-days, anniversaries and so much more! They add the perfect touch to any party.
Rachel used the wall as a dessert station behind the letters. It was the cutest thing!
Blush and Bacarra prepared all of Miss Reina’s floral arrangements. I don’t think I can put into words how beautiful the floral arrangements were. She did an amazing job at implementing my vision and adding her own twist. I loved how she was able to incorporate real fruit into the arrangements. Miss Reina even tried eating the oranges off of them a few times ;). The dried Pampas and palm leave elements were such a perfect touch. I have one of the arrangements sitting in Miss Reina’s room now! I plan to save parts of it for a framed art piece. Photos to come of that!
Live Laugh Scrap made this adorable REINA banner. Amanda, an Omaha native, owns her own business in making fun letters for any event! I had this banner hung in our house for Reina’s birthday. I love how Rachel was able to incorporate them into the party! They fit the theme perfectly!
I had so many compliments on Reina’s smash-cake! It was from Hy-Vee (a local grocery store)! I used to spend major money on going to exclusive cake galleries and bakers and I honestly always left disappointed. I either spent way too much money or the cake just wasn’t that good. I have learned that kids do not care what the cake looks like and most of the time the guests barely eat it! I have gone to Hy-Vee the past couple events I have thrown and am always so impressed by their cakes and the price.

These letters really added such a beautiful touch
This is the arrangement I have in Reina’s room now
These were the place settings for all the kids that came to the party. Rachel did such an incredible job at even making the little things so thought out and beautiful
One of the kid craft stations. This was a dream catcher station. It definitely fit the theme of Reina’s Boho Birthday party. The other station was a boho Tamborine craft. I will save Noelia’s crafts as keepsakes forever!
