I had so much fun decorating and party-planning for my niece's 1st Birthday Party at a neighborhood park. There were over 90 people that joined us, so it was a big one! We had water balloons, a delicious cake, a mini "smasher cake" just for Natalie, pictures hanging up high, flowers galore (making the centerpieces was my favorite part), a couple of cute banners made by my sister and friend, a chalkboard for an Instagram hashtag (I'm so glad I finally have a chalkboard now), and loads and loads of food! We feasted on tri-tip sandwiches, a corn flakes cheesy potato dish, hot link sausages, fruit, salsas, 7-layer dips, chinese chicken salad, mexican wontons, and chicken wings to name a few. I think she enjoyed herself...we had so much fun! Thanks to Pinterest for inspiring me with a ton of ideas haha.
|I wish this was my life every day....coffee, mason jars, raffia, and flowers!|
|Raffia extensions anyone? Hahaha|
