My First Birthday Bash





My family threw me a pretty sweet birthday party this year. While it's true I've got none to compare it to, I did thoroughly enjoy myself and hope my future birthdays are just as nice!

Mom had fun with a vintage theme, using lots of pink because, well, girls like pink. She made these pom pom flowers from tissue paper and hung them from the ceiling above the buffet which showcased some favorite pictures Mom has taken of me this past year.

Here's a close-up picture of the pom pom flowers.

Mom and her mother, my Nana, also made this banner made of vintage fabrics.


There was enough fabric to make matching flags. Mom and Nana also made a couple banners out of paper doilies to go with the vintage theme. Easy and cute!

For food we had several salads, munchies in the pretty white footed bowls, and sandwiches. The kids had cheese or PBJ sandwiches and the adults got to make their own, just the way they liked it.



For dessert we had lemon cupcakes with lemon buttercream frosting. Yum! For the recipe, visit Your Homebased Mom.

I had a great time opening presents...


Reading cards...

and playing with friends.

Thanks to everyone who helped make my first birthday so special!
