I still am in shock that my baby turned one last weekend. It seems like she was just a baby a couple weeks ago! Now she’s pulling herself up, trying to walk, and chasing the dog all over the house!
I was honestly putting off planning her party because I didn’t want to think that she was getting older so quickly. And it was also challenging because her birthday comes so quickly after Thanksgiving, that I am going to need to start planning for it much earlier next year!
I decided to do a Mad Hatter’s Tea Party as her theme and use pink, black and gold for the colors. Luckily I had some left over decorations from my sister-in-laws bachelorette party!
Since we were having the party right before lunch, I didn’t want to get too much food and be left with a lot of left overs (most of which I can’t eat)! So we did mini bagels, applesauce, a make-your-own yogurt parfait and a hot chocolate bar!
I found really cute tea cups at Card and Party Giant. I had chocolate chips, marshmallows and cookie sticks, along with pink sprinkles as the toppings to the hot chocolate.
Using clear cups, guests were able to make a yogurt parfait by adding yogurt, granola and mixed berries.
For dessert, we had red velvet mini cupcakes and my step-mother-in-law’s famous brownies!
In keeping with the mad hatter theme, I printed out top hats on card stock. I printed out tags to go on the top hats so the guests would know what all of the food was. To make the top hats stand up, I made a tent out of the remaining card stock and taped it to the back.
The best part of the party was the birthday tattoos we got from Love and Lion. They did an amazing job making custom temporary tattoos for every kid at the party!
Everyone seemed to enjoy themselves and Adleigh loved her smash “cake”! Happy birthday my little princess!
