Lucy's Birthday Party

Today we celebrated Lucy's first birthday with lots of friends and family....and cookies. For the past few months I have been planning a milk and cookies themed birthday party for Lucy. I was so happy with the final outcome today. We went big for this party. I was telling my Mom and Alex's Mom last night that i felt giving birth to her last year was easier then preparing for the birthday party BUT it was a labor of love and we all had a wonderful time, definitely worth the effort for my little Lula Bell.

Happy Birthday to you......

Party People!

Food Time! When we moved into our house the old owners had left a milk crate with four bottles from a local dairy. It worked perfectly as a utensil holder for this milk and cookies themed party! 

Our menu was a gourmet hot dog bar, broccoli salad, chicken salad on croissants, mac and cheese (Lucy's Favorite), pumpkin dip. apple cider and sweet tea. For dessert we have cookies and cream cupcakes and a cookie buffet for favors. 

We used "If You Give a Mouse a Cookie" as a guest book for everyone to leave Lucy a little note on her first birthday! I am so excited for her to have such a special book :-) 

Present time, lucky lucky lady!

Some of these cake pictures just looked adorable in black and white so i thought i'd share them with you all too. 

Thank you to everyone who came today to make Lucy's party so special. Thank you for all of your generous gifts and out pour of love to our little girl. Thank you to my Mom for all of your help with watching the kiddos so i could get stuff done and making a few runs to the grocery store for last minute items. Thank you to my mother in law and grandmother in law for baking some cookies for me and also helping with last minute items. I couldn't have done it without you all.
