The Birthday Celebration

Sunday, March 22, 2009

On Saturday we hosted an open house party in honor of Cayman's 1st birthday! We enjoyed having our home filled with friends and family joining us to celebrate her precious life!

The picture in my last post was not my dining room.

This was my dining room decorated for the party. We constructed tissue paper pom-poms balls, compliments of Martha Stewart, and strung them above the round banquet table. I gift wrapped the china cabinet doors and finished them off with a bow.

We decorated in yellow and pink flowers.

Grandma Cindy baked dozens and dozens of mini cupcakes with a homemade marshmallow frosting.

There was lots of delicious food.

The vegetable arrangement was a garden theme.

The fireplace mantle was brightened with a collage of Cayman's one year photos {which I will post soon. I have not forgotten}.

Scrapbooks of Cayman's first year were passed around.

Cayman was dressed in her party best. {We gave her a nice break from her helmet for the afternoon. Isn't her hair just beautiful?}. Cayman...



had her picture taken over 200 times,

ate cake,

and partied til she dropped.
It was a fun day had by all!!

I can't believe how long Cayman's hair is getting. It is so adorable:) I can't wait to see her pictures.

So sorry I missed it. We have a little boy with bronchitis, and have been a little miserable all weekend. He's not fond of doctors visits right now, and we had several for this, so he's been a grump. I didn't want to expose anyone else to sickness, so I'll have to make it up to you.

Nicole said...

Lisa said...

Oh my goodness!!! It looks perfect! How I wish I could have been there. I hope that Cayman had a wonderful time.

I loved all the pink and yellow flowers! And those big pom poms! Fabulous!

Tell Cayman that Elisabeth has that same toy with the mirror! It's her favorite. She sits and stares at that orange button :)
