This was the party that started it all...I've learned a ton since this one but it holds a special place in my party loving heart. My first baby turned one and that was a day to celebrate!
We started out with a color scheme, hot pink & lime green. It ended up evolving into the Fairy Garden Party. The theme was inspired by her room at the time. Her nursery bedding was red, yellow and had flowers and dragonflies all over it. I found this adorable nylon dragonflies at what now has become one of my favorite websites, http://www.hearttoheart.com/ and they still to this day hang from her ceiling.
The party favors were in buckets from the dollar store, and had a set of wings, tutus, bags of fairy dust (sprinkles), bubbles, and candy. The boy buckets had cars, playdoh, candy and bubbles. We had a bounce house and bubble machine for entertainment since most of the guest were around the age of 1. Of course, the birthday girl also had 3 outfit changes. Her polkadot party dress greeted the guests, she then changed into her tutu dress for the remainder of the party. She enjoyed her smash cake in customized bloomers with a cupcake and the #1 and her lime green fairy wings. :)
It was a lot of fun and truly the beginning of my love of all things party.
