Alyssa’s First Birthday

I went to the blog to make this post and saw that it has been 2 months since I have made a post!!  Man - life is just so busy I can't seem to find the time to blog!  Sorry...

I did want to post pictures from Alyssa's first birthday party!  We had so much fun!!  I threw Alyssa her very first tea party!  And rest assured - it will not be her last!  It was just too much fun!  It will be even more fun when she is old enough to really participate in it :-)

First – the party set up.

Here is a close up of the food table.  We used my mother’s china and crystal platters of my mother in law.  The roses are in the glass cups that are part of my mil’s punch bowl.  The roses are from my rose garden!

The box that the napkins are in is a box that my grandmother made me a few years back and filled it with items of my great grandmother.  I thought it made a very pretty napkin box!

Here is a picture of the food table with all the food on it.  We served mini quiches, pinwheels, southwestern egg rolls, and fruit salad with fruit dip.

Here is the tea table.  Instead of serving punch we put rasberry white tea in the punch bowl.  We also served sweet and unsweet iced tea in cute pitchers as well.

The cake table

Alyssa’s cake!

I made “tea” cakes for everyone.  The daisy ones had pineapple cream cheese icing (made with real pineapple).  The tulips had fresh strawberry icing and the butterflies (and Alyssa’s cake) had buttercream icing.  They were arranged on plates from my mother’s china set.


Here is the teddy bear tea party that was set up in the living room.

The little table had one of Alyssa’s baby quilts on it and my mom got her the little plastic tea set that is displayed (also displayed is the tea set she got from my mil for Christmas)


These animals were wearing some of Alyssa’s baby dresses.

This bunny was wearing one of my dresses and my jewelry…sshe went all out! :-)  (and the baby stroller in front is what we got Alyssa for her birthday)

Here are some pics from the party!

Daniel couldn’t handle all the “girlie” stuff and decided she needed a 4-wheeler hay ride!  It was a lot of fun!

Opening her gift – she has the funniest facial exressions!

She LOVED her cake!!!  You can’t see real well in the pic below but I decorated a onesie for her to wear when eating her cake!

It was a super fun party!   I still can’t believe she is one though!!  Where did the time go?
