Emma's First Birthday Party

We lucked out with the most beautiful spring weather for Emma's party. I'm not sure how I would have entertained so many children if we were stuck inside. It made the flamingo theme even better!

The cupcakes were from Publix, but I used candy melts and a food coloring marker to make flamingos and some "one"s to top the cupcakes. 

The biggest hit, however, were the marshmallows dipped in leftover candy melts and pressed into gold sprinkles. Straws were from the dollar section of target. The kids thought these were the greatest! 

We had lots of alcohol, obviously. Including kids pink lemonade and adult pink lemonade. Emma spent half her time crying over not being allowed to have wine. And the other half carrying around an empty beer bottle.

My favorite part were the Happy Birthday balloons! And then we printed each of her monthly pictures to hang across the fireplace. 

A yay balloon and her sweet high chair topper. Which fell off one second into the smash cake pictures. 

I'm going to make the girls wear their flamingo shirts again and get a good picture. They were too excited for the party to pose for the camera. 

It was such a fun time, and I love that we had so many people there to celebrate our sweet Emma. Olivia said, "I need to have my friends here, and Emma needs her baby friends." And we had both! Such a wonderful Saturday!
