Malone's birthday was awesome!
After some agonizing about what kind of birthday to throw, I decided on a small(ish) family only party. I didn't want Malone to be overwhelmed and our house is just way too small for a billion people to par-tay it up.
I didn't really have a "theme" per say, just a red and aqua color scheme (with a funky splash of yellow). It turned out just as I had hoped and we all had a blast celebrating this amazing little girls' 1st year! Hope you like the pics...cause there is a lot of 'em!
The birthday spread! Cupcakes, cookies and popcorn.
(Malone had none of the popcorn of course!)
The cupcakes and smash cake were uh-mazing! They were done by a local lady, Babycakes by Angie. The cake was soooo moist and everyone raved about how good they were. Chocolate chip cookies by me! Recognize those goodwill plates. How perfect are they?
Score on that one!
I found these napkins at Party City. I thought the saying was perfect for the day.
"Life is good, Let's make today very good"
I used the red wicker baskets from Malone's room to house the two different flavors of popcorn. One salty, one sweet.
Red/white striped staws from Hey YoYo. A white pitcher held the milk for the chocolate cookies.
Notice the utensil holder? My other goodwill find! Spraypainted a fun aqua!
This chair was given to me by my Mom. It was used to feed all 5 of her grandchildren. She retired it when Malone came along and I decided to spray paint it aqua. Perfect for the party and I may use it or give it to Malone one day for her babies.
The birthday banner and hat is from Joosy Card Co. The banner says, "Lo is 1."
Closer look at the birthday hat. Loved it!
Momma and Malone
Her headband is from Monkey Knots.
Onto her presents! She actually sat in my lap for the whole present business. I couldn't believe it? Malone is an "on the go" kid and usually doesn't have time to sit still. She must have really been excited about those presents!
Malone's t-shirt dress was made by my very talented Mother -in-law. The shirt is from Vintage Lucy's and I just purchased the skirt fabric and she sewed it right on! I gotta learn how to sew!
I made her flower pin on her shirt, just to add a little pizzaz! Tights are from Target and shoes from Wal-Mart. I thought she was adorable and she totally rocked her outfit!
The Hubs Meme made this precious Quiet Book. Malone loves it. I'll have to post more pics soon to show all the pages. Man, I gotta learn how to sew!
Malone got her very own red retro kitchen. She has played with it like crazy. She especially likes the phone. She will put it up to her ear and say "hi!"
Yay for Red Wagons! All of you Dallas area folk will know this is
gonna be a great Canton First Monday wagon!
Family birthday pic. Look at that adorable squinchy smile!
Here is my other goodwill find. I wanted a keepsake for Malone on her 1st birthday. I had everyone right a little wisdom for Malone on this goodwill chalkboard that I spraypainted. It was really sweet and I know Malone will cherish it when she gets older!
"Mom, why is this thing on my head!"
Birthday cake time!
