Bristol’s First Birthday

First off I want to say thank you to everyone who came to Bristol’s 1st Birthday turned out perfect and was a huge success. I am so thankful for everyone of you and for being a part of Bristol’s 1st year!

On to the party.
I went with a Pink and Gold theme with Crowns. A bit princess but not too much.  We had a candy buffet with mostly homemade items and few store bought. I made some circle garland to hang on top of the table, used a pinterest idea to add a little something to the simple table cloth and added an easy gold and pink homemade banner…and Tah Duh!!DSCF4914.jpg ( We still have tons of candy left over so for future reference SLOW DOWN on the candy making!)

Fun with the Photo Booth
 I thought would be fun for the kids and added just a little something to the party. This was pretty simple. I took a 2 table clothes cut them in strips and then twisted them at the top to make a frayed background. Then I added some paper fan pendants to the top and corners to give it that “booth” look! (shout out to Krystan for suggesting this!) Also I spent only $6 at Hobby Lobby for a pack of “pre” done photo booth prop. Saved a ton of time! 

The pictures from our photo booth turned out ADORABLE! So worth it! Check some out below!

On to the Presents
Bristol got a ton of wonderful gifts and even though she was reluctant to open any has been playing with her gifts pretty much non stop these past few days. Thanks again!
I must say though, that my personal favorite was when we opened her new baby doll and she began feeding it with a spoon, hugging and kissing it! ❤

 


Yummy Yummy Cake
We made 3 cakes, a Chocolate, a Vanilla and Bristol’s pink smash cake. I am for sure not a cake decorator but the cakes tasted awesome!

 AND last but definitely not least a big THANK YOU to my wonderful friend Krystan Hann, who did an amazing job helping get everything made, set up, “re” set up and also put up with my 2 am long nights getting ready for this party. I really couldn’t have finished this party without her! THANK YOU KRYS!!! ❤
