Lulu’s first birthday was last week, and we had her party on Saturday: very low key, dinner with family – Mommy put together a little “I Love Lucy” theme…
Mommy got this super cute outfit from The Tiny Closet Boutique on Etsy. I’m pretty sure Lulu should wear tutus All The Time from now on because she looked insanely adorable. She sent in the heart graphic and they digitized it to add to the shirt. Mommy printed that same graphic on iron on transfer paper to make my shirt.
The color scheme was red, black, white, and turquoise, with fun polka dots. The straws came from Cupcake Social on Etsy.
The cake! Mommy doctored up a Duncan Hines Devil’s Food mix, and made Magnolia Bakery vanilla buttercream frosting. It was delicious.
Birthday banner! Glittery cardstock, magic show for kids, polka dotty scrapbook paper, and stick on letters. Easy peasy.
We tried to stick to a 50s theme with the food: the appetizers were pigs in a blanket and potato chips with onion soup mix dip. The main meal was a nod to a classic tv dinner: meatloaf, mashed potatoes, and a vegetable. We made Ina Garten’s Roasted Broccoli because it’s the yummiest ever. Mommy picked up $1 frames and printed the televisions on cardstock to hot glue on them.
You don’t mind a few more party pics, do you?
