keenan's first birthday

Wednesday, April 20, 2011

my good friend shelly, emailed me her son's first birthday party pictures and i was thrilled to receive them in my inbox. it was a pleasant surprise as not too long ago we were both pregnant with our first borns and now her second baby boy just turned 1! 

the easter/spring-themed party is so cute, i just have to share. getting cue from the anders ruff printables, shelly decided on a fresh light blue and orange party colors. she did most of the party decor and i simply love some of her great finds!
she found these bunnies on sticks at a local gift shop and planted them on terracotta pots, covered with moss and adorned them with ribbons. they are perfect party decor but then they will be transformed as home easter decor that can be displayed year after year! 

shelly served french macarons, bunny-shaped sandwiches and she even tackled on making cakepops with a resounding success - kudos to you, shelly! the bunny decorated cake was baked by a local baker.

they planned on an egg hunting activity for the guests but due to unfavorable weather, the kids get to play pinning the bunny tail indoors that i'm sure they all enjoyed!

thanks for sharing these priceless photos, shelly! it was surely memorable and fantastic!
