THE PINKALICIOUS DETAILS...
Call me crazy, but I decided I didn't want the mess and craziness of a big party at my house, so we rented one of sport court rooms at Noah's to house the party. We thought the kids would have a lot of fun playing games and running around. I was especially grateful I made that decision, when I ended up with walking pneumonia the week of the party.
A couple weeks before the party Reese and I had a big crafting day and made this fun banner, birthday hats, gift bags and a fun cake topper. Reese helped pick out the theme, the paper and all the cute embellishments. She also helped do all the cutting and gluing.
We also made Pinkalicious cupcakes and a fun little cake, just for Anni. We served pizza and old fashion rootbeer for dinner.
THE BIRTHDAY GIRL...
Was pretty much in awhh the whole night. She especially liked the balloons.
Anni loved her hat!
Reese, of course, had an honorary "sister of the birthday girl" hat.
Reese helped Anni blow out her candle.
Anni is a lucky girl and got some fun gifts from her aunts, uncles, cousins and grandparents.
Her cousin Mycol made her the most beautiful matching necklace and bracelet.
Reese and I made this fun surprise ombre cake. I'm making another one for Anni's one year photo shoot next week. During the photo shoot she'll be able to dive in face first, just like Reese did on her 1st birthday.
In each of their gift bags the kids got glow wands or glow swords. The had a blast turning off the lights and running around in the dark.
The party was a huge success and we had the best time. A big thanks to everyone for coming and helping us celebrate Anni's first year in our family!
