Lily’s Rose is ONE

Hi!! It’s been so long since my last blog, I am so rusty when it comes to blogging these days well actually this past year haha. Becoming a mom sure took most of my energy. But luckily I’m getting back into the swing of it. I wanted to share pictures from Lily’s first birthday party. It was such a fun and happy day. 
 
We held the party up at the camp where we live. There was plenty of room and it didn’t hurt that there is a walk in fridge that I was able to store all of the food and desserts in. 
My vision was shabby chic, and a rosy pink. I pulled some ideas from pinterest and got to work. 
First I reused these coffee filter pom poms that I made for my sister in laws bridal shower a couple years back. These are cheap and easy to make! They add such a festive feeling to an event. 
This is the only picture I got of them.

 Next is the backdrop. I have used this backdrop for so many events but needed to change the color scheme. I went searching through my arsenal of fabric and found most of this soft pink, rosy color. I couldn’t of been happier with it.

We had a baked potato bar with all the fixings.

I saw this cool picture collage on pinterest on a much smaller scale. I have tons of extra fence boards and so my brother in law Todd made a stand for the back and Matt did a great job of putting together the ONE of pictures of Lily’s first year! I haven’t taken it down yet, I love it so much 🙂

I set up games, coloring, toys and face painting out on the deck for the kids.

I think this is my favorite part of the whole party, the cake. I made the cake but I did have some help decorating it. My first attempt was a run through a couple weeks before the party and lets just say it was tragic. So I called my friend Ashley who makes such beautiful cakes and she came and helped me. The buttercream recipe is delicious its Billy’s Buttercream. Side note, I did not add as much powdered sugar as the recipe calls for.

Lily had a different smash cake that was made of whole wheat flour, bananas and applesauce, she hated it 🙁

Lily was such a fun little hostess. We are so proud of the little lady that she is becoming. Having her in my life has forever changed the way I see the world. Words can not express the joy she brings.
