We are leaving you this week with an adorable party that was styled by one of our readers, Courtney Portner, for her daughter’s birthday.

Deanna from Mirabelle Creations created this groovy 70’s inspired disco party for her daughter’s 9th birthday.

We love the clean, graphic elegance of this classic zig zag, especially in Daisy’s orange and navy color palette. The chevron pattern was used to line vessels, printed on the tags and labels used throughout the table, and cleverly applied to cookies. Desserts included a…
