Sweet and Simple Birthday Party

My daughter turned 1 a few months ago. I knew that I wanted to make her first birthday special, but wanted to keep it simple so I could focus on her big day and not be overwhelmed with all of the details.  I ordered a few wonderful decorations on etsy and kept the menu easy with food that both adults and kids would love.
