“B” is for birthday

August 24, 2009 at 8:23 pm (1 year olds, birthdays, Megan, parties)

We celebrated Megan’s 1st birthday with all our family this past Sunday.  It was a really fun day!

Our theme was “B is for Birthday”.  I was originally  inspired by this Hostess with Mostess spotlight.  Then when I found this dress (think yellow ribbons, not green) by Oh Sew Sweet Boutique on Etsy … I was in love!  And I loved it!  So “B” was for Birthday … it was Megan’s Bee-Themed 1st Birthday Party!!

My sister Staci came through as always with the most awesome cakes!!!

The party started at 1pm, so we served everyone lunch – nothing too fancy, but I wanted to make sure everyone had a seat & could enjoy their meal without having to balance their plate & drink!  So I rented some tables & chairs (it was cheap since we didn’t have a huge number of guests!).  I’m glad I went this route … it was alot of fun to decorate!!

We played a version of “Megan” Bingo while we ate.  The card squares were all about Megan – birth stats, the hospital she was at, names of family members, places she’s been, etc.  Staci won one round … and she took home a bottles of honey!

I hated to see the Beehive destroyed, but it was time to enjoy some cake.  Megan wasn’t that sure about it.  She never really ate too much.  She much preferred just to pat the icing!

After opening alot of gifts … I think I opened them all & Big Brother helped – Megan definitely doesn’t understand that concept yet!  Everyone just stayed around for a while, played & visited.  We had “The Bee Movie” playing for the kids (and some adults enjoyed it as well).  Everyone got to take home one of the centerpiece pictures of Megan & also a goodie bag of treats from the “Candy Buffet” (small, but still “sweet”)!

    Happy birthday, Megan! Looks like a great party!
