audrey’s first birthday {the party}

We hosted a birthday brunch for our baby girl this weekend.

I went with blues, gray, white and lots of flowers – just like her nursery and apparently my favorite combination of colors right now.  Her invitations set the tone and it was fun to carry out the peony and striped papers into other parts of the decorations.

We had our family and a few friends for a nice little party to celebrate the big girl.

Yummy brunch food: a few of my favorite pastries {granny horns, cranberry orange scones, Top Pot doughnuts}, lots of fresh fruit and a fancy egg dish made by Audrey’s adoring papa.

For the kids, I made simple favor bags filled with yogurt covered pretzels.

And the grown-ups received monogram note cards.

Audrey’s big brothers wanted to help out with decorations, so they made this sign which I just love.

She wasn’t too sure what to do with this big pile of sugar, but after her biggest brother gave her a taste, she was hooked.

What a fun day for our special girl.

    The invitations are just beautiful and creative. I love the hats, too and the photo collage. Beautiful! She will feel loved when she looks back at all those memories.
