Lilly's Garden Party

My daughter had her first birthday and so of course it was an excuse for me to go all out and have a fun bash! 
The theme was Lilly's Garden Party

For the table....
-I used astro turf as a tablecloth
-Lattice for the backdrop to hold pictures of Lilly for each month to see her growth throughout the year
-lanterns hung above the table
-pots held cake pops, ice cream, and the dirt pudding
-the banner in front you can find more info about here

This picture is a perfect representation of my son and how excited he was about the food on the table! He watched me all week get ready for the party and I kept saying "Not until Sunday" he was super happy that Sunday had finally arrived!


Dirt pudding in terra cotta pots. 
I attached flowers to the top to make flower spoons!

Fun Flower Cake pops!

The cake had real pansies on it! 

Lilly LOVED her cake! I'm glad it was such a big hit!

Fun for the Children-

 When the children arrived at the door they received headbands (either flower headbands or butterfly headbands whichever they decided) or bug hats for the boys. 
My son decided to take his off for the picture!  Darn!

The children planted seeds of their choosing.

They painted birdhouses

All in all, it was such a fun party! The birthday girl had a BLAST and that is most important!

Maybe a little too much fun? This party girl is pooped!

Food- Jaihart

Thanks for stopping by!
Have a LOVELY day!
