I have been looking forward to my daughter’s first birthday party since the day she was born. And let me tell you…I spent WAY too much money and time on it! Hah! But I can also say it was totally worth it. I LOVE planning dessert tables so Avery’s party was my excuse to go ALL. OUT. But first…a theme. Omg the freaking theme. I cannot tell you how many Pinterest boards and Google pages I searched for the PERFECT theme. Ya know, the one that someone hadn’t already done 50,000 times. Yeah…not finding it. Barbie, Paris, owls, hearts, rainbows, ladybugs, cupcakes…done, done and SO done. I was really wanting something unique but in the end I settled on Sprinkles and Confetti! Rainbow Sprinkles and Confetti. I figured it would be cute and fairly simple.
Ok, would have been simple if I hadn’t made it super complicated. I’m talented like that. In the end we had somewhere around 100 confetti filled balloons, seven different sprinkle coated desserts and one very happy birthday girl!
We had so much stuff dipped in white chocolate and sprinkles…Oreos, strawberry wafers, pretzel rods, strawberries, donut hole “cake” pops. And of course we had gumballs, homemade marshmallows and a gorgeous cake with a balloon on the top! It was fun seeing everyone enjoy all the treats but especially fun to see Avery eat her first homemade marshmallow! She loved it.
She also loved her second smash cake. Think she might have preferred the bad-for-you version a little bit more than my healthy one. Hah!
It was the best birthday party and even though I went totally overboard and she won’t remember one single thing, I’ll treasure it forever and obviously show her all the pictures from her fabulous party! ;)
