Last week, Kaylin turned the big #1!
We had a pretty large party (about 60 people) and a lot of fun!
One of the best parts of the party was all of the yummy food! I wish I had pictures of everything! We had meatballs (regular marinara & Asian inspired), Chick-fil-A chicken nuggets, baked beans, crackers & cheese, chips & salsa, fruit and fruit dip, vegetables & hummus & veggie dip, nuts & nut mixes (from Trader Joe’s), rolls, strawberry spinach salad, cookies and cupcakes. Luckily, I had family helping out with some of the food (thank you everyone!!)
I made Kaylin’s smash cake using this recipe. The recipe is healthier and has a banana base:
Topped with a lighter cream cheese frosting:
More food pictures- amazing fruit:
Nuts & cheese:
I made a ton of chocolate cupcakes:
The theme was Mickey/Minnie. Kaylin freaked out every time she saw a Mickey or Minnie.
We also had a keg
Its hard to get a one year old to sit still:
Kaylin’s Aunt Jenny did SO much for the party (here with her boyfriend Mike who took all of the pictures):
Jenny put together a bundle of kids activities include noodle necklace making, coloring, bubbles, etc:
She also painted the beer pong table up for the party:
I had high hopes for the smash cake:
but it was much more dainty than expected:
Josh and I helped to make it a little messier! It was a fantastic day !
