So 5 months later I am going to share Bella's party with you...
I wanted a Fruhlings Fest theme... but people here wouldn't really get that so I just had that in the back of my mind with the decorations.
The invites. Oh dear I just LOVE them!
A lovely girl who we met through worship took most of the photos. She is actually in the process of moving to New York so unfortunately I won't be able to continue to take advantage of her expertise. But you can check her out on Facebook here.
The party decorations turned out bright and festive. Just what I was hoping for. And the weather cooperated unlike on Micah's first birthday.
Fest cookies, a necessity for any party.
I DIY'd the glitter letters.
and made a lot of Shot Cotton pennants
The pinata Beehive.... which may have been a little bit too well made....the bees are made of sculpey and painted. We removed them before destroying it. Instead of filling it with candy it was filled with confetti. Each kid received a cotton drawstring bag... which had bubbles, a squirt gun, a ball, and playdough. I tried come up with things that could be used up and purged easily when the parents were over it.
We went easy on the menu and just had Pulled Pork, fruit, baked beans, and cut vegetables.
Someone took the singing and cake much better then Micah. She never has minded attention!
I can't believe Bella is already one let alone almost one and a half now!
