{Sweet Shoppe 1st Birthday}

It had been a while since I had a reason to plan a big party, so I had such a fun time planning my daughter's first birthday. When I saw Shelley's party for her twin girls on How Does She?, I was head over heels, and knew I had to use her party as inspiration. I am so happy with how everything turned out and can't wait to start planning for next year! 

Living in the freezing tundra of Idaho, I decided to have a Steamer Bar to warm everyone up. Steamed milk was in a nice coffee dispenser, with flavored syrups, chocolate, and caramel available for a DIY steamer!

  1. Okay, so I've been trying to leave a comment for the last 10 minutes...
    I hope this goes through...
    Anyway, what a beautiful looking party. I have a 17-month old girl myself, and I too love parties. I'm looking for unique and fun ideas for her 2nd birthday...

  2. ooohhhh I just noticed, you're daughter's name is Avalynn. My daughter's name is Ava Madilyn. One of her nicknames is Avalyn :).

  3. This party turned out adorable. I found your blog after you followed me on twitter. Would love for you to become a fan on facebook if you haven't already.
    May I share your party on facebook or on my blog?
    So glad to have found you!! (or to have had you find me). *wink*

  4. Eek! I love every last detail! Thank you for letting me know you were inspired by my twins party. It is sooo fun to see some of their party concepts incorporated here. --You live in Idaho?! Where? And WHY wasn't I invited to this party?! I love the steamer idea. XOXO - Shelley :) {}

  5. What a great party. I love all the special details, especially the steamer bar. I can't borrow too many ideas since we have a boy, but I have to ask about those there a balloon inside a balloon?

  6. You did such a great job! I was looking for inspiration for my twins' 1st birthday when I found HowDoesShe, which then lead me to your site. Where did you get Avaynn's outfit? I love the lace leggings!

  7. I never knew about this blog!?!? How did this happen!?


I would love to hear from you, so don't be afraid to leave a comment!
