Ryan spray painted these letters with gold glitter (he was thrilled) and I spent entirely too long making the tassel garland. But they’re cute! I set out my two Project Life albums for 2014 which show almost Ellie’s entire first year.
I had the birthday video I made playing on a loop on our computer in the corner. In the middle of the table is Dr. Seuss’ Happy Birthday book with a note taped to the front to ask all of our guests to write a little note to the birthday girl.
We had broccoli cheese soup and a buffet of deli meat, cheeses, a variety of bread and buns, veggie tray, and chips. Of course, we had enough food for about 40 people. :) Ryan spray painted those Ball jars with gold metallic spray paint. I cut the Happy Birthday banner on my Silhouette from gold glitter paper and just taped the streamers to the wall.
After she opened presents, we sang Happy Birthday and gave Ellie her cake. She dove right in (literally…with her face), fed some to Daddy, to me, and to Madison, and then was done and started throwing handfuls on the floor and tried to push the cake off her tray.
I just cannot believe that our tiny girl is one!
