We had so much fun celebrating Madelyn’s 1st birthday party this weekend. I wanted to go with a pink theme and chose watermelons and flamingos and it turned out so cute. It was fun having one more summer party before kissing it goodbye and welcoming Fall.
If you hadn’t noticed, flamingos seemed to be everywhere this summer. So finding decoration was really fun. We set up activities for the kids outside including a bounce house and a few kiddy pools and we just socialized and enjoyed the day. We had a little bit of rain during the day; but we had told the kids to wear their swimsuits, so it didn’t put a damper on the party at all!
A friend of mine from high school actually took some professional pictures for me; but while I’m waiting on those to come back, I thought I would share what I have.
These cookies are amazing. They are from a company out of Memphis, TN.
I set up a Mimosa bar & served some white wine, rose, and beer.
I also made some Summertime Brew which is made of frozen (pink) lemonade, vodka and beer which is always a hit when it’s hot outside. I always love having a good spa water and to keep with the theme, I added cucumber, mint and watermelon to our water.
How cute is this????
I think I was most proud of my balloon garland of all the decorations. I had seen a picture on pinterest of one and I knew I had to replicate it. It turned out so easy!! I just blew up the balloons by mouth, took a yarn needle with fishing line and threaded all the balloons on the fishing line until I had as many as I wanted. It took me maybe 45minutes while the kids were napping. The hardest part was hiding the balloons so the kids couldn’t get to them before I was ready to hang it!!!
In the pink cups are goldfish and cheerios for the kids and I had some flamingo and watermelon suckers and rock candy for kids to enjoy too!
Madelyn had a ball and totally crushed her smash cake. It was hilarious to watch her. After several mouth fulls of double fisting, she then just stuck her hands in the cake and started kneading it. The girl loves to get messy. It was such a memorable day and I can’t wait to see all the pictures from the photographer!
