My sweet Lexi turned ONE last week! She was such a doll at her birthday party... smiling while we sang to her and digging into her Funfetti cake. We kept the celebration small at home and it turned out perfectly.
I've had a few people ask me about her high chair that we got when she was around 6 months... it's from Ikea and only $20. A friend suggested it and I also saw it on Pink Peonies and took note. It would be a really good option for a summer house, grandparents, etc. not only because of the price tag but you can remove the legs and easily store it. There is also a pillow insert that goes along with it.
I originally wanted to do a pink rose theme (this party was my inspiration) .... but after finding a colorful Kate Spade table runner at Home Goods I decided to work around it and everything just came together. The napkins are from Target.
Sandwiches - Pimento Cheese/Chicken salad/Salmon, Cucumber, Cream Cheese
Pasta Salad - Orzo, Cucumber, Roasted Red Peppers, Kalamata Olives, Artichokes, Sundried Tomatoes, Feta, Red Onion, Lemon, Parsley
Sangria - Pinot Grigio, Polar Tart Cherry Lime Seltzer, Orange Juice, Strawberries, Blueberries, Lime
Funfetti Cake, Chocolate Truffles and Vanilla Ice Cream
I got the ideas for the sandwiches from this list.
Miraculously there was no cake on her dress!
One of her favorite gifts was this Fisher Price Purse. She loves taking everything out and putting it back (along with other random things)... just like me.
She came crashing down from that sugar high. We timed her celebration perfectly between naps, ha.
Happy Birthday, Lexi! xx
