Natasha's 1st birthday party

We sang to a sweet little girl...

I prepared a special table and "memory corner" for her.

Including a moss covered "N". (Used this tutorial. Could not locate moss on a roll though, so I just used it from a sheet and cut it to size. And, my initial isn't wooden; couldn't locate a nice one I liked. Found a suitable light weight "N" at Hobby Lobby for $1.99 and it's perfect.)

My sister picked tulips for the centerpieces...

We had cheesecake...

...and brownies.
Pause.
You are looking at a pile of powdered sugar and sweetened condensed milk goodness.
My sister-in-law made these, and wow.
Oh. So. Good.

I cut up two old sheets and serged the edges for personal napkins.

And basted a doily onto an old flour sack which was covering the thermos with homemade lemonade. Mmmm....

...and lots of smiling, clapping and laughing.

Hooray for the 1st birthday party I've ever planned...by myself!
I had such fun...i think I'll do it again someday.
