For my daughter's first birthday we went with an "Ice Cream Shop" theme being that her birthday is in the middle of the summer.
The invitations were customized to include a photo of her on the back! Her outfit for the invites, and her dress for the party both had an ice cream cone design by Mud Pie.
Guests were greeted with directions to join our fun in the backyard and we included some chalk on the driveway for kids to play with. Along with a large popcorn cart so guests could grab a snack!
We incorporated 2 bounce houses, a face painter and balloon designs for the kids! Along with our big dessert table, Cold Stone catered ice cream sundaes in waffle cups for the guests to order and add toppings to.
The cake was made by Paradise Cakes, from West Bloomfield & Every layer was a different Flavor! It turned out beautiful and tasted great! The beautiful cookies were all made by my talented friend Valerie.
For goodie bags, each child took home an ice cream dish, with a coordinating ice cream spoon! I filled them with various candies, bagged, bowed and added personalized tags. I purchased the dishes from OrientalTrading.com! In the next few days lots of our friends sent me photos of their children eating ice cream out of the dishes at home! I love giving out things that the kids can actually use!
