I’ve been meaning to post this one for so long. My friend Sandee is super-creative so when her little guy turned one she put together a fabulous party at her gorgeous home. I loved the red, white and turquoise color-theme which is perfect for December parties.
I absolutely loved the cake table. The guys were mesmerized by the chocolate fountain: if they could have put their hands and face in it, they would have been in absolute heaven. The little penguins and bears on the cake were too cute!
And I thought the make your own hot chocolate station was such a great idea. There were even little toppings you could use to customize your cup. I think this would be neat even at a grown-up party.
And I’ve always wanted to get the guys a caricature at the fairs and festivals we’ve seen them at but we’ve actually never done it. So it was so cool that she hired one of these artists to do a ‘photobooth’ at her party. The boys were a little unsure while they sat and posed, but thought the picture was so neat when it was done. What a seriously cool party favor.
But my favorite favor? I actually got a picture with my bestie! One of the saddest things I’ve noticed since becoming a mom is that I always have photos of my kids and my friends’ kids, but I never have photos with me and MY friends. So I’m definitely going to make an effort this year. Thanks Sandee for such a lovely party! (And so glad I have you on speed-dial for when I plan my next event!)
