Camille's Bubble-Themed 1st Birthday Party

Camille's bubble-themed first party was so much fun. Here are some snapshots from the day. It is a day I could easily relive over and over ... her joy seeing all of her friends around her was infectious! It did confuse her a little bit when everyone was singing to her, but then she got into it ... and went in for the prize -- the delicious buttercream-frosted smash cake!

We had just over thirty family members and friends in attendance (11 of those being kids) so it was a great crowd. The men enjoyed sitting on the screened porch watching the golf tournament. We had a few things set up for the children to do -- Camille's new water table was a HUGE hit. We'd also asked friends of ours with a two-year old to borrow some toys, so we had a soccer goal, t-ball, and several balls scattered around the back yard. An outdoor blanket in the shade had baby toys on it for the youngest kids. Oh, and a pinata, because every party needs a pinata!

For this 3:00 party, we kept food very simple. Cups of Goldfish and cake! We also had bottled water, juice boxes for children, a beverage tub with some beer and a "bubbly bar" with champagne and orange juice and passion fruit juice as mixers.

The weather ended up being absolutely lovely. It was the perfect, perfect day.







Camille's daycare teacher made the balloon sign below. We love her! She was at the party, but I don't have any photos in this post (I'm sort of strange about never posting any photos of where she goes to daycare ... probably too overprotective of me). But I was so happy she was able to join us for the party and we did get some adorable pictures with her. 

















With her very loving grandmothers, Bunny and Mimi.

    1. Nikki, I seriously love it. There's not one thing I'd change about it. Extremely easy to clean. Pleasing to the eye. And you can disassemble the bottom part of the legs to convert it to a toddler chair down the road. So it's got staying power ... a hard thing to find in baby gear!

  18. That photo of her head down - priceless. It's like she is saying, "enough." I like how you kept it simple and with just the ones who adore her. One year old birthday parties can be so overwhelming and to keep it simple and low key is so much better for baby. Happy birthday to Camille and way to go momma!
