I had such a great time planning Harper's 1st. birthday party. I started planning it when she was about 5 months old, so some ideas changed as the planning went on.
The birthday girl, of course!
The birthday girl had her ladybug smash cakes and everyone else had either white or chocolate cupcakes in the flower cupcake wraps. Some cupcakes had a chocolate ladybug on them. We also had M&M's printed with a ladybug or "Harper is 1!" on them. These were set out on the table.
Activities / Games
We had ladybug coloring pages on the tables for the kids to color, and we did the pinata. We also had all the ride on toys out for the kids to play.
I can't tell! Daddy would freak out!
The big "bugs" got a ladybug bucket filled with goodies. The little "bugs" got a bag with spots on it filled with a sippy cup, Gerber Puffs and a small plush ladybug. All the kids got a ladybug bubble wand.
The entire party was awesome!
What People Ate
Daddy cooked hamburgers and hotdogs. We also had chips, cheese dip, ladybug appetizers, chocolate covered pretzels, and strawberries.
What People Drank
We had bug juice (Marriott Punch), sweet tea, peach tea, water, Capri Sun, and soft drinks.
Most Touching Moment
We started a James Avery charm bracelet for her and gave it to her for her birthday with her birthstone charm on it. She was also given 4 other charms to put on it for her birthday. Every year we will add to it. Also, 4 of her great-grandparents were there, so there was 4 generations represented!
We had to change mommy and the birthday girl after the birthday girl had too much bug juice and her diaper leaked all over mommy!
