Y’all, I loved Caroline’s lemonade party so much that I think I’ll do it again for her second birthday.
Okay, not really, but maybe for her third. :)
We kept it small with just family, but I still wanted to make it pretty. A girl only turns one once, right?
I made all the printables myself. I had two banners – one in the dining room by the food and her birthday sign over the fireplace in the den. I also did little tags to tie around the mason jars and use for cupcake toppers. And the cake bunting matched it all too.
I bought the lemonade lids from We Love Citrus, and I was super impressed. They came packaged in cute little bags and shipped quickly. They were adorable. I could have bought half the stuff on their site!
I bought all the flowers at Central Market the day before and arranged them myself. They always have a great selection, and I found just what I wanted.
I bought the over-sized mason jar at the Container Store a few months ago, and it worked out perfectly for my big flower arrangement.
I picked up the paper poofs at the last minute from Target, and I think they added some whimsy to it all.
And I had my favorite Caroline Instagrams printed through Postalpix and hung them on the stairs with twine and clothes pins.
It ended up being a little more work than I had planned, but it was totally worth it. Caroline had great fun with a house full of family, but her favorite part was the cupcake smash. And who can blame her? Cream cheese icing and balloons overhead can’t be beat.
Gosh I love her.
Happy birthday sweet baby girl!
