It’s been a few weeks since Alice and my first birthday together and so I’m way overdue for a post about it. My mom took most of these photos. It was such a great day–no, week–with our friends and family and parties and getting so many lovely cards in the mail. There were a few aspects I really loved from our big first birthday bash.
Me and Alice’s matching skirt and dress (made by my assistants) â™¥ Custom bottles of Jones Soda â™¥ Pretty paper straws â™¥ Tiny muffin cups of french toast sticks with syrup, fruit, and nut toppings â™¥ Tiny triangles of grilled cheese â™¥ Vintage Dixie cups â™¥ Our “sunglasses and hats” theme (Alice’s favorite) â™¥ Tiny ballet dancers on a big two-layer vegan chocolate cake â™¥ Big prize ribbons with “A” and “1″ on them â™¥ Felt party hats for each guest â™¥ Make your own snack mix â™¥ Children scribbling on our chalkboard door â™¥ Bubble machine â™¥ The insane amount of sweet friends and family who were able to stop by â™¥ Our pretty handmade invitations â™¥
Also, I had some technical problems for the last few weeks and the blog wasn’t publishing new posts for about half of my readers. If you are finally coming back after missing so many posts, I recommend that you start with our Annual Reader Survey. I’m extending it for another week so everyone gets a chance to respond and enter the big giveaway of all of my favorite things. So start there!
Happy birthday to us.
p.s. If you leave a comment on this one, leave it for Alice for her birthday. I will show her when she is older.
