Best Kids Parties: A Simply Sweet First

My Party

Name: Veda Jane (1)
Location: Birmingham, AL

I had so much fun putting this party together for Veda Jane. I was itching to entertain (and lets be honest, needed an excuse to craft), and seeing how this has been the most eventful year of my life, a proper party celebrating the one who changed it only seemed fitting.

I wanted to keep it simple though, so I threw a little snack gathering for her playgroup buddies at the park and featured her favorite dishes dishes: goldfish, watermelon, strawberries, blueberries, cookies, and cake! The "tablecloth" is wrapping paper that triggered my coral and navy theme for the whole thing, and I ordered the paper bags for invitation envelopes and paper straws off of Etsy. The cake was simple, made from a box, polka dotted with candy melts and topped with a paper "V". I pre-canned peach strawberry juice in jars, set out a few picnic blankets, and enjoyed the afternoon with friends!

I know she's only 1, and she won't remember it until she goes back and reads her diary entry all about it one day, but I like to think that she she felt the love last Thursday while she splashed in the baby pool and downed 14 pieces of watermelon.

Thanks Laura, we're sure she did! Readers, find Laura at Twirl.
