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.
Invitation from Penelope and Lala.
I set up a simple buffet table and added little gold flags and bunting. The rag garland was also a beautiful touch and stayed hung in my living room for weeks after the party. Rag garland and flags also from Penelope and Lala.
We served a variety of muffins, pigs in a blanket, bacon and broccoli quiche, apricot and cheese crescent bites, and a salad topped with barley and roasted sweet potatoes (elin’s favorite).
We served caramel cake with salted caramel icing along with a mini smash cake for Miss Elin.
The birthday girl looked adorable in her party outfit! (Shirt from B. Swanky and bloomers from Bloomin Bloomers)
Everyone had a blast and Elin especially loved her first taste of cake.
Happy Birthday Sweet Elin! We love you so much!
