A Ton of Fun Turning One!

I love beautiful party decorations--it just feels so festive!  Last week our little grand-daughter Josey had her first birthday and her mama Meghan outdid herself making sure it was a special occasion--she has even more photos on her blog.  Let me show you!

The theme was "You Are My Sunshine"--quite appropriate because Josey is a little ray of sunshine with her joyful personality.  Meghan made the garland on the stairs by stringing cupcake papers together!
Guests were asked to sign a remembrance book Meghan made using Shutterfly.  It had pictures that highlighted each month of Josey's first year.  Don't you love the pom-pom?  We did a tutorial on how to make your own pom-poms--just click here.
Meghan used her cricut to make this banner.
This was an afternoon party so light snacks were served along with birthday cake.
There was a scrumptious and beautiful cake with buttercream icing and a lemon curd filling made by our local bakery.  Meghan added the little banner.
We used mason jars rimmed with yellow sanding sugar and yellow striped straws which had name tags added.
Josey seemed excited to get her smash cake.  It was her first taste of refined sugar and at first she approached it very daintily.
Let's just say she enjoyed it!
She remembered her manners and offered to share :)
All the families were presented with favor boxes containing treats and a CD with a mix of songs selected to celebrate the party theme!
You are such a blessing--we love you Josey!  Happy Birthday!
