Zalyn’s Rainbow First Birthday Party

I think it’s safe to say that last Sunday was one of my favorite days. (Second, of course, to the day baby girl was born.)

All the planning, all the preparation. All the time put into it…. ALLLLLL worth it. It was perfect.

For food, we did fruit skewers, pasta salad (made my my wonderful mother-in-law), chicken skewers (slaved by my wonderful hubby and in-laws), Rainbow cupcakes (made my me) and cupcake pops (guilty as well.)

We had a “photo booth” complete with a rainbow banner background and tons of goofy props for the guests to dress in for fun, memorable pictures. It was so great to see so many of them get involved.

I set up a spot to display “The Saturday Diaries.” It’s the book I put together of Zalyn’s Saturday pictures and the write-up of what she was doing that week.

We also had a “Birthday Book” in which we asked our guests to draw pictures, tell Z a story, etc. I was totally that hostess that walked around throughout the party, “Did you sign the book?”

And now, without further a due… the photo’s. I believe after this post, I will have reached my limit on the free wordpress account.

sidenote: Zalyn’s dress is from here . My dress is here . My mother got Zalyn’s Birthday hat and bib from here.

I’ll be doing a seperate post about the cupcakes and cake pops soon.
