My Party: Beatrice

Los Angeles, CA

Summer thinks her baby daughter is numero uno and we think the first birthday party she threw for her is a sure winner: Since Beatrice is turning one, and we think she's a prize-winning baby, I decided to use a #1, first-prize theme. I combined that with polka dots and the colors blue and green to make something fun and summery for the backyard.

I made B her own first prize lapel ribbon, a larger one for the wall, and miniature lapel pin ribbons for all the guests. The cupcakes had #1 flags, and I made blue and green polka dot streamers. The party favors were baby food jars painted blue and green and filled with jelly beans.

My favorite part of the party was the #1 photo backdrop. We hope to repeat it in years to come with numbers 2, 3, etc. as a way to record who came to her party each year. And we printed out each family's photo for their thank you note.

Thanks Summer!

We love a good party! We just put together a new "My Party" Submission Form. If you'd like to share the good ideas and photos from your child's celebration with the Ohdeedoh community please submit through the form found right here.
