1st Birthday

Shabby Chic First Birthday - Part 1

12:00:00 AM

I know what you are thinking...this post is LONG over due! I know! October birthday April post...what can I say! Life has been crazy! BUT here are pictures from little Miss Ava Faith's 1st Birthday! I made 75% of everything you see in the pictures! It was so much fun!

This was the cake table! As you can see my kids decorated the bird houses for her! It was a very sweet addition to the decor! I bought cardboard letters at Joanne Fabrics and covered them with scrapbook paper. My dear friend Brittanie of Cupcakes Kisses & Crumbs made the cupcake sticks for me!

The tutorial for the cupcake stands can be found here and a closer look at the framed 1 can be found here!

Didn't the cupcakes turn out adorable?! Not to shabby?! (Ooooh...I am such a comedian!)

The regular birthday cake sat on an adorable cake stand that I made! Tutorial is here!

Ava Faith had a smashing good time! I think her favorite part was hearing everyone sing to her! That girl sure does LOVE to be sung to! And like a lady she ate her cake every so daintily!

The room was filled with family and friends and lots of laughter! It was her special day! My baby turned 1!!

The counter was decorated with love! These mason jars were ones that my grandma brought to me and sit on my mantel! One was filled with scraps of fabric and another was filled with elastic. Flowers freshly picked from my garden. Candy dish tutorial is here.

I made tea sandwiches. One is the farmhouse chicken salad that can be found here. And the other was white bread, sliced cucumbers and then I mixed dill dip and cream cheese together to have cucumber dill sandwiches! Oh my they were delish!

I would give you the sugar cookie recipe but my mom would kill me! Its a secret family recipe! But do know they are melt in your mouth good!

I served fruit salad, lemon tea cookies, pumpkin bread (recipe found here). Melt away mints, pink lemonade and pumpkin dip with sliced apples (recipe is found here).

This party will be a two parter as I have uploaded my limit of pictures for this post! Be sure to check back tomorrow for more!
