It's Party TIme

Oh my gosh...where have I been? I can not believe it has almost been a month since my last post! Shame on ME! My busy life is no excuse but I have tons to post about with a few Save the Date orders just complete and a new piece of art along with what everyone is waiting on...my niece's 1 year old birthday party. So I will not let you wait any longer....We decorated with candy and of course had the Valentine's Day Theme. The layout is not as fancy as the inspiration board I created but I think me and My sister did good.The menu was fruit, chips and dip, pizza dip, cheese puffs, and lots of cake and candies. We even moved the picture I took of Carlee a few months back and had it as a center piece for the table a long with adding color to the dining room.It turned out FABULOUS!! She was one happy birthday girl! And of course her outfit matched the pink, brown, heart theme. Fashion is important!Don't you just love the hat??? I ordered it from Dainty Couture on Etsy! They make all sorts of cute hats and monogrammed items. You have to check them out!
I made the cake and I am glad I did not decide on a cake decorating career path. But I think Carlee liked it. She even got it in her ears and on her parents (pictured above).Here you will see the chaos! There were so many cute kids and they loved playing with Carlee's new toys. I guess it is good that she is not old enough to get possessive over her things! It was a fun day and one I will never forget. I just love helping plan parties!
Towards the end of the party everyone was outside. Then I realized I was not in any of the pictures so my sister snaped this shot. I would not want Carlee to think I was not at her party would I?!
