Gracie’s TuTu Cute 1st Birthday Party

I was so excited to plan a girl themed birthday party so I went with pink tutus because nothing is more girly.

I think I bought all the tulle I could find at hobby lobby and made a wreath, cake stand and high chair decoration. I even wrapped the silverware in tulle.

I made her a name banner with doilies and rhinestone letters. I had a canvas made from the smash cake photo shoot and made pink play dough as a party favor. I put it in Masson jars and tied tulle with cord on the lid. For the girl guests I also tied a princess wand that I found at the target dollar spot. I think it came out pretty cute. Also for a dollar at Hobby lobby were these huge pin wheels in pink so I put those out front.

For food I did a pasta bar with 3 different types of noodles and 3 different sauces. I made some homemade breads and bought Caesar salad kits. It was so easy. Desserts were strawberry cookies, strawberry cupcakes, cheesecake and Gracie had her own little cake. I made it myself using different sized Pyrex and corningware dishes. I thought it was so cute. Clearly it was not professionally made but definitely made with love.

I had the kids paint canvases with the first letter of their name on it in tape. It was a crazy mess but we had a bag of wipes handy.

She was all about her presents. She kept just hanging around them like she knew they were for her.
