First B-Day Party: Details

We celebrated Adelyn’s 1st birthday on Saturday the 16th, 1 year after my original due date! It was a wonderful day filled with good food, family, friends, and fun! I have almost 500 pictures so I’m going to split them up into a few different posts, so make sure to scroll through the blog to see each one!

I had a vision in my head of what I wanted her invites to look like. I sent a bunch of pictures & directions to Kyle’s sister, Laura, and she came up with just what I wanted! Thanks Aunt Laura! We used pictures from her 9 month photo session for the invite. I printed them at vistaprint.com when they were have a 50% sale. A good friend made her owl hat, her shirt is sheshemade.com, and I made the tutu.

A good friend made her owl hat (used in the pictures), her bow she wore at the party is from this etsy shop, her shirt is sheshemade.com, and I made the tutu.

We decided to have her party at our home, in the garage & the patio. It turned out to be a beautiful day {maybe a little hot}!

I got the fabric pennant banner on clearance for a $1 at Target.

Kyle blew up all the balloons with the air compressor and we strung them on fishing line and hung them in between the house & garage. Unfortunately the popped randomly all throughout the party.

I felt like I had a huge undertaking to turn our garage into a fun, girly 1st birthday. But overall, I’m really happy with how everything turned out!

Her cake was from our favorite local bakery, Laritas. I made the tutu from left over tulle from her tutu.

I made the ribbon wreath a while back for her bedroom door and it worked perfect for added party décor. I printed her monthly pictures and strung them on ribbon to display as well.

I displayed her invite in a frame, along with a few canvases that we have around the house.

The desert table! I had so much fun with this! I made the tissue poms and the chevron fabric is from this etsy shop.

Her smash cake & the cookies are also Laritas, I made the dipped pretzel rods & marshmallows. The pink sixlets are from Hobby Lobby, I got the pink gum balls on amazon, the pink & white M&Ms are from Valentines day clearance (we did the same thing for our wedding 7 years ago…and yes they last that long!), and the pink gummy bears & laffy taffy are from candywarehouse.com. The glassware and serving dishes are all either mine or my sister, Mindi’s.

I use this Pinterest idea for the silverware, napkins were $1 Target clearance, the owl print is from zulily.com and I just had my friend write in her name, and the plates, silverware, table cloths & skirts are all from a local party store.

I displayed another canvas above the food table along with happy birthday banner I made. Her canvases are from easycanvasprints.com. Like them on facebook and you get 50% off canvases & free shipping.

We served sliders, hot dogs, brats, baked beans, pasta salad, potato chips, and frozen fruit cups. For drinks we had an assortment of pop, juice boxes, and water.
