^^^ I literally start freaking out when I think about it. Not only did the time go blazing by, but it is a rude awakening of the happenings that are just around the corner: walking, potty training, time outs and then more baby making (we'll see about that last one).
Before all of those things, I am going to try and master throwing an amazing birthday bash! Because her special day is smack dab in the middle of winter, the obvious easy bbq is a no go. Our families always gather on Sundays so having a Sunday birthday party just seemed right. After much deliberation, I am finally going to live out my own fantasy and throw a killer MAD HATTERS TEA PARTY!
|This is the "save the date" I sent out through e-mail to my family. We want everyone to be there so I wanted everyone to pencil it in their calendars...especially family that lives far away!|
I am so excited...not only for the party and celebrations but all the crafting thats going to be involved since I plan on making most everything myself.
For feasting I am thinking brunchy items, tea sandwiches, chilled soup, cupcakes, scones and cookies.
Drinks will include a tea bar, cucumber water, and mimosa's.
For decorations I am thinking tons of fresh flowers, mix&match tea cups and tea pots, doilies, and I am thinking I am going to go with purples, gray and pinks for the colors! (Goodwill will be my new weekly hangout).
I know this seems far away but I feel like if I am going to have handmade invitations and favors, I better get a move on! I will keep you up to date on all the crafts and ideas I have ;)
What did YOU do for your child's first birthday?? Do you have any ideas for the tea party?!
HAVE A BLESSED SUNDAY!
