Little Milton's First Birthday Party

Yesterday was little M's first birthday party. I had been really looking forward to it. I figuered it might be my only chance since I am soon to have two babies under two. We had a wonderful time. Little M was overwhelmed at times but enjoyed playing outside in his new play area and seeing all the lovely people who joined us. Here's a glimpse into the party........




I am going to post a "behind the scenes" look into the party also where I will feature the recipes I used for the cupcakes and where some of the decorations came from. All the hanging rosettes and birthday banner I made.

Happy birthday Milton. Looks like a fabulous party!!

karen ~ lillybelle Custom Designs said...

Gorgeous party and, as always, gorgeous photos! I love the blue/orange combo....the pumpkins fit in perfectly. What type of paper did you use for the rosettes? It looks somewhat heavy, but I would think that it couldn't be with all the folding and fanning. LOVE the balloons on the ceiling, too! Happy 1st Birthday, Milton.....

Dee said...
