We had so much fun. It was simple and mostly for adults (read: burrata sandwiches and lunch wine), but you know, I think that’s how most 1st birthdays are.
A few highlights:
(Close up of the invites here.)
Positives: It didn’t rain and everyone was late (so we were ready and I was able to take a few photos).
Needs improvement: It was super windy so all of my cute confetti blew off the table and into the planters before anyone arrived. Also it was super sunny and warm, which was great, but that makes it really hard to take good photos! I didn’t get a great shot of the whole table with all of the honeycomb poofs hanging above, but you can imagine that right?
Almost all of the decor is from Shop Sweet Lulu. Napkins are from Ikea. Confetti tissue paper is from Michaels. I made the little cupcake flags and Dashiell’s birthday crown (which successfully made it to and from Costa Rica intact!). Oh and Dash’s adorable chicken shirt? Consignment store, of course! I love that one.
The menu (does anyone care?):
Burrata, roasted red pepper and arugula sandwiches
Coconut quinoa with tofu and snap peas
Guac, salsa, chips
Crudite with homemade hummus
Carrot cupcakes (muffins) with cream cheese frosting.
I used Sucanat for the cupcakes and 1/2 whole wheat flour to make them slightly more baby friendly. Which made them taste more like muffins than cake, but they turned out fine.
So glad we ended up having a party after all!
