OK, so I finally got around to posting pics from Penelope's first birthday from June.
Her Birthday outfit was a gift from a very dear friend. It's from Gymboree.
The Party Table
The party was at 3pm, so we just had fruit, veggies, spinach dip with bagel chips, and cookies. Then of course we also had wonderful cake and ice cream.
I didn't really get a close up on it, but the paper plates, napkins, a couple platters & buckets were from Target. I think most of it was out around Easter time. I just loved all the pretty bright colors & built my party around that color scheme.
I loved using balloons as a banner accross our dining area.
I was super excited that you could see them reflected in the mirror above the food table. Does that make me a huge dork that I was so happy about that?
We had some pink sparkling punch that was super good. I put out lemons, raspberries, and pretty pink stripe straws for the guests to make their drinks extra pretty. This is the first time I used jars for drinking glasses & I loved it.

This is how my little Princess greeted her guests. LOL.
They came in and she fell down on the floor smiling and kicking her feet. She is so silly.
Chewing on her presents. :) Wearing her flower crown I made for her. I found one at Lori Marie's that I liked, but couldn't swallow the cost, so I just DIYed it myself. It took me hours to make, so I totally understand why they are so expensive. It's not nearly as beautiful as the ones she makes, but it was free for me to make because I already had all the felt on hand. But seriously check out her shop because EVERYTHING is to die for beautiful.
Our entry table. The little poster had a quote from the Princess and the Pea on it.
Wish I would have made that much bigger.
Just swishing her skirt
Let me know if you have any questions. I a lot more ideas and things I wanted to do, but ran out of time and money. You can check out my Inspiration Board I made for her birthday on Pinterest.
