Here are some of the fun and tasty recipes we served at Emily’s first birthday party earlier this month!
My little Emily has turned one year old! Where has the year gone?? It has seemingly flown by, right? While it’s sad to see some of her baby days come to an end, I’m excited to see what the next year has in store for us all 🙂
We celebrated her birthday with a very girly party. I’m not usually one to go so “pink” but I wanted her 1st Birthday party to be all girl and it was! I know she won’t remember any of this, but I had such a fun time planning it all and I hope she and everyone who attended had a great time!
I labored over what to make for what seemed like months, but finally came up with the menu below! I wanted to plan menu items that could all be put out before guests arrived and not have to be put in or taken out of the oven while everyone was arriving. It’s never fun to be stuck in the kitchen for your own party, right? All of these recipes allowed us to mingle with guests without having to fuss over the food once things got started. If you regularly follow along the blog, a lot of these recipes have been featured over the past month, however I thought it’d be nice to have them all listed here in one place. If you’re hosting any sort of event, I hope you try out some of these recipes! Not only did I get a lot of positive comments on everything, but it allowed me to enjoy the party and not fuss over all the food once guests arrived.
