    Awesome ideas! Her first birthday will be two weeks from now. Since it’s a midweek, we have to move it on Saturday. Now, I am thinking of having a little decoration in our home even if it’s just the three of us :)

  2. For our son’s first birthday, we had an "It’s Bubbly Fun to be One!" Party!! We had tons and tons of bubbles for all the kids to play with!! From the ones you blow, soap bubbles, and bubble gum!! We had kiddy pools full of bubble liquid and let the kids use hula hoops and tennis rackets to make bubbles as well!! The cake was a rubber Ducky surrounded by cupcakes that looked like bubbles, it was a "bubble bath!"

    I did a "Tea with the Mad Hatter" party for my daughter and it was awesome! I made things like mome raths and had signs up saying follow the mome raths. Upside down and crooked tea cups and tea pots decorated the tables. We had the walls covered in green with "rose trees" that had white roses with red paint dripping off of them. We played "pin the grin on the cat" instead of using a donkey we had a painting of the Cheshire Cat done and used cardboard grins. We also had a very large white rabbit painted holding a watch and he had a sign that said Your Late! The invitations were scrolls with tea bags attached. Everyone had a great time!
