Lauren's First Birthday Party

Ok...so I am having some difficulties with the posting of Lauren's party, so bear with me. Here are a few random shots that didn't make it in that I thought you needed to see! Sorry they are out of order.

This was the main table. We served candy for favors along with cupcakes, chocolate covered pretzels and marshmallows.

This weekend we had the honor of celebrating Lauren's first birthday with a ladybug bash! Grammie and Big Daddy so graciously let us open their home and helped us celebrate with style! Enjoy the pictures!

These are the signs we hung on the front doors. My mom uses these wreaths normally and they were perfect for the occassion!

I made this name banner and some tissue paper poof balls. The balls are really cute, but kinda a pain to make. I'm not sure that I will be making them for Hannah's party!

My parents have a HUGE island and it is the main reason I wanted to have the party at their house. Here is our display complete with toole and pictures of our sweet Lauren.

We had cupcakes for the guests and a smash cake for Lauren.

Chocolate covered marshmallows! Yum,yum!

What a cheese ball!

Sheis enjoying the frosting...

until Daddy thought it would be a good idea to smash her hand in the cake. Lauren did not agree with that idea. Cake time was OVER.

After some dessert the big kids were checking out the backyard. Too bad it was like 110 degrees because they have an amazing backyard.

What a great way to celebrate little Lauren's first year of life. She is such a joy and blessing to have in our lives. Happy Birthday Lauren Bear!
