I feel like I planned this birthday party since the day I found out I was pregnant! Although some things did change, I still planned and worked on this party for a while and I loved every minute of it!! I wanted her first birthday to be more of a color scheme than a theme because we will have PLENTY of birthdays where she picks a theme! I decided on hot pink and orange and I love the way it turned out. I made most of the decorations myself. I got most of my ideas from other blogs.
**Ribbon topiary with the favor bags
Go here to find out how to make the ribbon topiary.
(It was very easy to make but time consuming!)
The table in the kitchen. had a newborn picture and then a 12 month picture.
*There were two wreaths both pink and orange.
Click here for a tutorial on making these wreaths.
*The invitation were done by my friend Peyton at Do It Cute
The stickers were also by Do It cute (I used them on the cups and made a cheap version of cupcake toppers)
The drink station...water, pink lemonade, sweet tea, cokes and juices in the tub for the little ones.
**We had a collage made from the smash cake session.
I love the way it turned out!!
This was with Kim Lawson Photography
I did not make the birthday banner. I did not have the cutouts to do it so I ordered it
from Blooming Babies Boutique.
I did make the hat and decorations on the highchair.
Do it Cute did the monogramming and applique on the hat and I did the rest...super easy and these are so expensive if you buy them!
I made a banner with her pictures from each month and just painted the letters and numbers.
The cupcakes and smash cupcake were made by a
lady in Tuscaloosa made them and they were wonderful!
Mom helped with all the food. We had a lot but we also had a lot of adults here so I wanted adult and kid friendly food.
