This weekend we celebrated my baby girl turning one! I chose The Very Hungry Caterpillar as the theme. I had hoped to be able to do lots of fun things with the food to coordinate with the book, but I got really busy, and wasn't able to do it. There are so many cute ideas to do with this birthday party theme. I think my favorite thing about the party was my girlie's outfit. I ordered the fabric on ebay and had a friend applique a "1" on the onesie. I made a colorful tutu and also made her hat, which she didn't really want to keep on, but I did manage a picture! We served hamburgers and hot dogs with red potato salad and homemade salsa and chips (recipes are on the blog.). We also had watermelon, strawberries, and colorful goldfish. We had chocolate and vanilla cupcakes and the smash cake was a banana cake (recipe to come) served with ice cream. The party favors were little boxes (from the dollar tree) with mini m&ms inside labeled as "caterpillar food." We had planned to make caterpillar bookmarks, but didn't get around to it. It was just a family party, so all the kids just ran around and played. But, I do have a picture of what we were going to do. I also placed pictures of her throughout the year on the tables with extra circles from the invitation. This theme was so much fun. You can do as much or as little as you want and it still turns out great!
