Maci's Party!

Well today was the big day! :) Maci's 1st Birthday Party. It was such a joy to see her smile and clap. She was so happy!
Here's the precious birthday girl...eating her cake.
Some of the decor ~
I had hung all those little BUTterflies (about 100 of them!) on fishing line and taped them to the ceiling light and then out to the ceiling. My niece took this picture just so show the idea of the flying butterflies or whatever they were.
Each child ~ there were 7 ~ got a little pail filled with goodies. There were pixie stick flowers, marshmallow flowers, lollipop flowers, rings, tattoos and candy.
This is the bouquet of marshmallow flowers we made last night.
The table~ The butterfly cake made by Maci's mommy. Isn't is adorable!!
We served flower shaped egg salad and Bologna / cheese sandwiches, fruit, cut out cookies, chips and juice. I had made each of the little girls a tutu ~ using this tutorial (which was super easy to follow!). The girls LOVED their tutus. I had posted before about the flower headbands and how excited I was that my daughter bought some for today's party. Well, she was not able to make it home this weekend flower headbands for me. I improvised and sometimes I think that is when some of my better ideas come about. I had bought these large felt flowers from Hobby Lobby not really knowing what I was going to use them for...but today they got hot glued onto barrettes and became hair decorations for the girls.
We made candy necklaces ~ using gummie lifesavers, fruity cheerios,
and candy from a packaged mix for making necklaces.
So fun!

This is exactly the party every little girl must dream of. And you used my favorite flowers Gerber Daisies too! You are so talented and Maci's mommy made a gorgeous cake as well.

Think I could talk you into traveling to put on a party here in Oregon? ;-)
