1st Birthday Party – Vintage Carousel Pony Theme

I’m finally getting around to sharing our sweet girl’s 1st birthday.
This was a special one not only because she turned 1, but because her Uncle Ben was getting ready to head out on a mission for our church so it was a huge family affair.
I threw it a month early so he could celebrate with her.

Darling Horse Party ddHere was our entry table. The gold horse was mine growing up. I love having it for our kids to play on, and no it was not gold before the party.
Bailey's picture table ddGoing through these pictures made me realize how fast the year really had flown by.
Cutest Snack Shop ddOur little snack shop outside the pool.
Just in case you don’t know this, cotton candy melts in heat. 🙂
Aqua & Pink Snack Table ddThe kids still loved it, but it was well over 100 degrees on the day of her party.
cute dessert table ddWe had sugar cookies, glitter donut holes, cake pops, cake and macarons.
