The Cake: I ordered a chocolate cake with peanut butter icing. The bakery gave us a free “finger cake” for little Grace to dig into. I love how the cakes turned out and so did Grace! She started out picking off the little dots around the edge of the cake. Then she stopped eating and just played with it. I was impressed with how clean she ended up being!
The Decorations: The theme was simply the colors red, yellow, green & blue. I had solid colored paper plates, napkins, cups and silverware in those colors. Plus I had balloons around the house that were tied down with Grace’s plastic nesting cups. It was simple yet classic.
The Guests: We decided to only invite family. We still ended up with a full house! We had 13 adults, 4 kids and 2 babies! It was great to be able to have the room to host all those people! Praise God for our new house!!
The Gifts: Grace was certainly blessed with some great gifts! Nate & I decided to get her some classic ABC blocks. I spent a long time looking for the perfect blocks for her. After the party was all cleaned up we got the blocks out and Grace loved them! Honestly, I got a little teary watching her.
The Girl: She was certainly clingy and seemed to only want Mom or Dad at times, but honestly I think she loved having everyone there. She was as adorable as ever and definitely loved. She was one! And she is our number one!
