We had Casey's first birthday party today.
It was a brunch, shrimp and grits, mimosas, buttermilk lime dressing on bib lettuce, deer cake pops, and a Berry Birthday Cake. A far cry form the events we had planned for Harper's party, but, well, babies don't really do so much. This is to your advantage as parents, I have learned.
She had the time of her life. Her BFF, Sully, came with his awesome family, and so did her G-ma (my mom). Sully's big sister and Harper 'helped' Casey open all her presents. It may have been the most attention she ever got from the big kids, which is all she ever wanted.
Everyone had a long afternoon nap when it was all over, which is the icing on the cake of any day around here.
I made the party hats with this template.
The boxes are from my etsy shop. In the big girls', I put some crafty things for them to play with during the party. Three year olds are not so much for sitting though a leisurely brunch...
The table runner is wrapping paper from Target.
I made the polka dot garland, which was not crafted to the best of my ability by any means, but Casey did not mind one bit.
It was a lovely laid back moring, and I couldn't have imagined a nicer time for such a sweet little baby.
