Our Little Sunshine turned ONE this past Saturday.
So... we celebrated with a BIG 'ol Party!!!
Sophie and her best little friend Brynn decided that they wanted to have a joint birthday party, since they are only just 10 days apart in age. So, I made the Birthday girls matching Party Dresses.
|Brynn's dress got a little dirty during the cake episode, so I didn't get a picture of both girls in their dresses...|
|After the party, but I had really wanted a head on of the dessert table... I guess you just have to use your imagination.....(and try to ignore the giant new house they are building behind us!)|
(...and they are as good as all the hype.)
White chocolate outside, pink delicious inside all smothered in yellow and pink cocunut! Yummy
|cake pops before being turned pops!|
|Handmade paper cones to hold cheezies! Lots of work, but super cute!|
(and how ironic is it that the cheeses match my colour scheme perfectly?)
|The Birthday Girls' Cake.|
4 little layers of white cake seperated by 4 little layers of lemon pudding, all frosted in whipped cream.
Needless to say, they LOVED them.
|Chocolate covered Oreos|
|Candy Shish Kebobs. These were a MEGA hit!|
(I think the birthday girls even got a taste...)
For supper we had sliders and tatertots, and veggies too. But the mini burgers were quite a hit with the kids.
|The Sunshine of my Life!|
|This cake is going....|
|Almost Gone. |
I cannot believe how much cake my little girl ate!
|Then it was present time!!! Sophie rather enjoyed this, too!|
|The ballons that filled the basement. These are day old pics, so the balloons had began to loose their helium. |
We had the yellow, bright pink, and light pink balloons.
Unfourtunatly, we got NO pictures of the basement. Which, due to the unforeseen weather, turned into a last minute party paradise. Balloons EVERYWHERE, and crepe paper, too. We rented a helium tank, and had around 40 balloons floating around the room.
This is where we put our 12 month photo banners, as well.
(A photo of mom pregnant, then a newborn photo, then one photo a month. These were hung from bakers twine with clothespins, and though super simple to do, looked amazing. Sophie's is still downstairs.)
Hopefully I can get a picture of it up, too.
All in all a whole lot of work! If I ever go party crazy again, I will be sure to get everything set up the DAY BEFORE! Then, I will have lots of time to get the pictures that I want and make any last minute store trips to pick up what I forgot!
