I've decided to have a series of "Parties Past" posts, to catch up the blog on some of my favorite parties I've hosted. I hope you enjoy the series! Let me know what you like!
OCTOBER 2012 - Mary's First Birthday Party
Our Mary Louise turned one last week! She's still best known for her petite frame, so I decided to have a "mini" party for her.
Her itty-bitty invitation
We set up at the park. We're having beautiful evening weather that we wanted to take advantage of, plus Mary has tons of cousins who need room to run around - so it was perfect!
As part of the mini theme, we had all miniature food:
sliders (condiments served with doll spoons & knives)
lil' smokies cooked like hotdogs and served on mini homemade hotdog buns
pasta salad with mini bowtie pasta & tiny pepperonis
deviled quail eggs
a veggie platter of baby carrots, grape tomatoes, mini cucumber slices
small (Kettle Cooked) potato chips
mini dill pickles
baby goldfish crackers
and mini cupcakes
I also served Lil' Hugs drinks and mini 8oz cans of soda.
I also made her a little bunting banner, blew up water balloons, and printed wallet-sized pictures of her that I put in 2-inch frames.
I LOVED this party! Everything about it was SO FUN to plan. I highly recommend it!
