My Party: Emory

Maryville, IL

Emory may be little, but her beautiful party was refined enough for ladies (and gents) young and old. Her mother Elise shares: Our daughter Emory Saige has been a 'pretty girl' from day one so we planned a simple garden tea party for her first birthday.

My mother made two small cakes which i decorated with paper butterfly cutouts. The grape chicken salad and rhubarb jam and peanut butter finger sandwiches with lemonade and green tea were the perfect refreshments for a warm June gathering. We wanted the day to be lovely and filled with homemade and vintage details. A picture garland was strung to remind us of all our favorite moments of her first year and vintage linens and glasses graced the tables.

Thanks Elise! Readers, you can find Elise blogging at elise is...content.

We love a good party! If you'd like to share the good ideas and photos from your child's celebration with the Ohdeedoh community please submit through the "My Party" submission form.
