Happy Tuesday beauties! My weekend was a busy one that I’m still recovering from. It was my cousin’s little girl’s first birthday and they had a big party for her on Saturday! It’s been a while since our whole family had been together so it was especially a good time for all of us. My cousin did an amazing job planning her daughter’s party (she’s quite the party planner!) Everyone really enjoyed the celebration and how much time and effort went into making it special.
She chose pink and gold for the color scheme and lots of sparkles! Her baby girl wore a darling little tutu and pink onesie for the occasion. A pretty strand of pearls was added for photo-ops. A fun addition to her party was the candy bar in the dining area complete with chocolates, rock candy, jelly beans, and lollipops!
There was also the most delicious cookies in the world on the dining table, personalized for baby girl of course! I love watching bakers make these amazing cookies on the Food Network. There’s so much detail that goes into the decorating!
My cousin also had a cake smash for her little girl. It was so funny to watch her very delicately put her fingers in the cake. She was such a lady and didn’t want to make a big mess. Finally, after a while she got her tiny fists in there and started eating her cake.
For the adults, there were beautiful strawberry cupcakes to indulge in! My aunt also made a strawberry spinach salad with crumbled Gorgonzola cheese, crushed bacon pieces, almonds, and a vinaigrette. Delicious chicken salad sandwiches on croissants were served as well! Told you my cousin knew how to throw a party!
It was a fun event for everyone and a great birthday for the birthday girl!
