We didn't do a "theme" more of a color scheme. Everything was Hot pink, lime green, and purple. We had TONS of food, Mickey shaped chicken nuggets, ham biscuits, pigs in a blanket, fruit & veggie trays, chips & dip, pretzels, tex mex dip, addictive corn dip, m&m's, hershey kisses, & cupcakes. We had green sherbert punch, pink lemonaide, tea, soda, and water. Brynnleigh had her own #1 smash cake, and everyone else had cupcakes & extra cupcakes ( we had 66 total!)
Her invitations, were AWESOME. My friend made this for me, and they were perfect. Many of you probably already follow Jenni's blog but did you know she had an etsy site? All I had to do was tell her my theme, colors, and send the pictures and it was done!
Decorations were pretty simple - I had some pink & green flower thingys, crepe paper, and balloons. I also did a photo timeline above the Family room entrance from newborn to 11 months.

See how cute my cupcakes are with the matching cupcake liners? You can order those through The Bakers Confections and they have pretty much every design/color you could want. I also ordered coordinating straws which were a big hit.
We got a bounce house, since most of the younger guests were older than Brynnleigh....it was well worth the money...at least for us...Owen was in it from 10:30 am until 7pm and only came out to eat and open Brynnleigh's presents!
Now...onto the important things...the birthday girl. You can't have a 1st birthday without a special birthday outfit now can you? I ordered Brynnleigh's outfit from ChristiCreations and it was perfect...exactly what I wanted. She has TONS of cute things...it was hard to pick, and she does custom outfits as well. I will definately order again. Everyone LOVED B's outfit...I did have to add some leggings...I wasn't expecting the tutu to be so short (total misconception on my part...had I looked at the pictures, I would have known) but it was cold anyways, so she needed pants. I actually liked the look of her leggings and I think it helped "Make" the outfit. I didn't get a GOOD pic of both the outfit & B, but here are some! She's worn the total outfit three times now, her party, church the next day, and on her actual birthday!!
Brynnleigh could have cared less that there was a cake sitting in front of her. By this time, she was tired, and well, she wasn't big on eating food, so no crazy cake shots. O wanted some cake, not cupcake....so that is why there is a chunk missing...since she wasn't eating it, I didn't see why he couldn't!
|It's my party & I'll cry if I want to!|
Brynnleigh wanted to thank everyone for helping to celebrate her 1st birthday and making it so special. She is also thankful for all the wonderful gifts she received and cannot wait to play with and wear everything!!
