Pink and Green Cupcake 1st Birthday

Katelyn Joy turned 1 on 9/20/2011! We held her party on 9/17/2011 with family and friends. It was pink and green cupcake themed party. We chose pink and green because that is her nursery colors and cupcakes because that is her nickname. Here are a few pictures of that special day courtesy of Mitzy Little. I must say that it was wonderful having a photographer at the party. I didn't have to think about taking one picture! Here are just a few of the wonderful pictures from her special day!

We had a 3 and under play area.
And a 4 and up activity table.
We attached these balloons to the crayon bucket.
Decorations and Table Displays:
 This table held the favors, guest book, photo timeline of each month of her 1st year and the newborn canvas print that hangs in her nursery.
 The favors were made out of the baby food jars we collected the past few months and filled with one of Katelyn's snacks-Fruity Cheerios.
 Guest book was a copy of If You Give a Cat a Cupcake by Laura Numeroff
Food Table
Fruit Kabobs and Veggie Cups
 Animal Crackers, Whales and M&M's
So proud! I made these cupcake toppers and wrappers. Also, I baked the chocolate and strawberry cupcakes...I wanted to be "that" kind of momma.
 The Cupcake's Throne
(just taped up tulle around the tray of her booster seat)
We served water and punch.
 The Happy Birthday Banner 
(Again, I was proud of this. I did it without the use of a Cricut Machine! Although I wished I would have shortened the ribbon holding her name to the top of the banner. Tutorial Here)
Momma's Lil Helper
Made these tissue poms as well. (Tutorial Here)
Our Little Hostess
Greeting a few of her guests!
Time to open gifts!
Let's Blow out the Candle and Eat Cake!
(I had this plan that Kevin and I would help blow her candle out together. It was a little difficult standing behind her.)

And that wraps it up! We had such a good time with family and friends, but what made it so wonderful was that Katelyn had a great time. She was just walking around, laughing, talking and playing with her friends and family. What a wonderful way to celebrate. We are so thankful to all who came and all who helped with her party. Just being there meant the world to us! We love you all!
