This past Saturday we had L's 1st birthday party. We had so much fun and although it was on Memorial Day weekend so many of our friends were out of town those that came made the day extra special for little L!
|His birthday banner created by ME. This is still hanging in our dining room because I love to see how he has changed over the past year.|
Entry way, sign in table, this was taken at the end of the party, but there was a little Happy Birthday book that all our guests signed in on.
For the food we had Chicken Salad on Phylo dough cups, Ham and cheese pinwheels, watermelon, fruit salad, Funfetti cake batter dip and graham crackers for dipping, a cheese tray and little goldfish. Water, coke and lemonade to drink
The adorable water bottles
The smash cake that never was smashed because L was not a fan of cake. I left his pop pop to decorating it and since he is a big Cincinnati Reds fan he took the liberty to write all over the cake!
Cute table runners made by my mom, the fabric matched the other accessories of the party
Silly Uncle Jay
I was so surprised and excited that my dad was able to make in to town for the party!
L and his friend chattin it up
The hubby and his parents
He was more interested in the candle than the cake...of course, typical boy
me and my dad and brother
with his grandpa Lopez
We had such a great time, Sarah at Life Sweet Life designed all the paper goods such as invitation, water bottle labels, gift tags and food tents. She was a dream to work with and I would definitely use her again for future parties!!
I used delicious cookies from Jolie Delights as the party favor, they are so cute and delicious!! They were big round baseballs!
I thought for sure L would be fussy and overwhelmed but he proved me wrong! He took a nap from about 10-1230 and woke up in a great mood, he sucked up all the attention and was quite the ham! We did have a professional photographer but I really wanted to get this post up and we don't have his pictures yet so I may just do a follow up post later when I get his photos.
