Our Mary Louise turned one last week! She's still best known for her petite frame, so I decided to have a "mini" party for her.
We set up at the park. We're having beautiful evening weather that we wanted to take advantage of, plus Mary has tons of cousins who need room to run around - so it was perfect!
As part of the mini theme, we had all miniature food: sliders (condiments served with doll spoons & knives), lil' smokies cooked like hotdogs and served on mini homemade hotdog buns, pasta salad with mini bowtie pasta & tiny pepperonis, deviled quail eggs, shrimp, a veggie platter of baby carrots, grape tomatoes, mini cucumber slices, and small (Kettle Cooked) potato chips, mini dill pickles, mini oreos, baby goldfish crackers, mini M&Ms, and mini cupcakes.
I also made her a little bunting banner, blew up water balloons, and printed wallet-sized pictures of her that I put in 2-inch frames.
And per tradition, here is the official 1st birthday cake destroying sequence:
That's a girl that knows what she wants.
Happy Birthday Little Miss Mary!
