Happy Monday! I will not be posting any Not Me's today because there is something much more important I need to blog about - a little princess I know had a birthday party!
Don't ya just love it when everything goes as planned? That is exactly how I would describe Avery's party. IT WAS GREAT. And even though she probably won't remember it, we will always have the memories and always tell her about how much fun her first princess party was! I had my moments where I felt like in some way Avery's party wouldn't be as fun as other 1 year old's since it would just be a small party at our house (RSV rules, remember?). Bubble girl said at least 8 times, "She's having a birthday party, with NO kids!!!" And we did. And it was fabulous! Avery was good for the most part. Around present time she was a little tired so da-da and I helped her out, but for the most part she was a perfect princess. I had a blast decorating and planning and watching it all turn out exactly as I hoped. And guess what? The DVD I worked so hard on finally worked! After a very long, sincere prayer I popped it in the DVD player and there it was! Annnndd, I had just enough time to burn all of the guests a DVD and wrap it with curling ribbon for a perfect little keepsake favor. They loved it! Avery enjoyed Chick fil A chicken nuggets & fries for lunch and of course....CAKE for dessert. Her daddy even let her drink sweet tea! And the pictures will tell the rest of the story...Enjoy! And, once again I need to apologize b/c there are like 50 of them. Thanks to my mom - she did a mini photo shoot before the party with Avery and they turned out great! For the record, she took 138 pictures, plus the ones I took, so here is the 'condensed' version of Avery's 1st Birthday Party in PICTURES!
The cake turned out PERFECT!
I think the theme was very clear, don't you? :)
No party is complete without a customized banner!
The gifts...before the guests arrived! :)
Thanks to nonna for making the streamer look so cute!
