Perfect Pink Lemonade Birthday Party

I was so excited for Eve’s first birthday and I knew exactly what the theme would be – Pink Lemonade, for my sweet and sour little girl ūüôā

Well, then there was an out of state family wedding the weekend of her birthday which meant significantly toning down the birthday plans. Which was hard for me, because I just love a good themed party. Side note: do you know what else is hard? Accidentally deleting all the photos in my camera from said party, and then racing to take just a couple to prove my baby had a party. Ugh!

So to plan the un-party, I started with the basics. ¬†One of the things I’ve done for all of my kids is purchase just a few birthday items that we bring out every year, including a pendant banner, centerpieces with photos of them over the years, and a “My special day” seat cover.

We¬†also use this seat cover for all special occasions, from birthdays to the first day of school and other milestones. ¬†It’s a tradition that has become very meaningful to us – when the kids come downstairs in the morning and see their seat cover, they know we’re celebrating them that day.

Next, I added some cute polka-dot napkins, cups and cute paper straws from Target.  I served a basic lemonade some frozen strawberries. Yum!

I made these adorable cupcakes. ¬†I’d scoured the interwebs for the best pink lemonade recipe and landed on this one. ¬†Unfortunately, they were just a bit too tart for us! ¬†No problemo – that just left more room for the homemade ice cream we made (and Mmmm does our family love homemade ice cream!).
