Today, we celebrated a certain little girl's first year of life. And what a beautiful life she has!
We tossed around party ideas for our littlest one for a while, but nothing seemed to fit better than The Very Hungry Caterpillar. We love the book, and she loves to eat ;)
I searched and searched for the perfect banner, and I finally found this one at Petite Party Studio on Etsy. I love Etsy!
All of the food came from the book! You'll notice here a chocolate cake, cherry pie, lollipops, cupcakes, apples, pears, plums, strawberries, and oranges...
a sausage, cheese...
...an ice cream cone...
..and a pickle ;)
Nanny Shawn and I had quite a time making these party favors! Late night at Nonnie's and two cartons ff salt later, we had play dough caterpillars! I put a few balls in a mason jar and cut out a caterpillar face. Voila! Play dough caterpillar party favors!
Here's the birthday girl!
What would a birthday party be without cake??
We set up a craft table for the kids, too! We used old egg cartons and finger paint and let them paint their very own caterpillars.
A very special thank you to all those who took the time to come celebrate our sweet little caboose's big day! We love yall!
