Michael's first birthday is just two weeks away and I have been in party planning mode. We are having his birthday party at the local country club's pool. With as many people that will be coming, (20, just in my family alone) there just isn't enough room to have it at home. I think a pool party will be a lot of fun.
Here are the invitations I designed and made.
There really isn't a "theme" for the party, more like a color scheme. I am using bright summery beach colors. I am also adding touches of beach/ocean items.
Like the cupcakes for example.
As far as decorations go, I bought several beach balls and swim rings to have floating in the pool. We will also get balloons to tie on the fence that goes around the pool. The balloons will be in the four colors that are on the invitations. And that is it. Not a lot of decorations at all.
One thing I am most excited about making for the party are the favors. I am going to try to make these:
I found a recipe for sugar cookies and a recipe for royal icing. I also found a great tutorial on how to make decorative sugar cookies here:
I am doing a test run this week to see how they turn out.
I am so excited about Michael's birthday party. Everything is coming together great and i think everyone will have a lot of fun. Now we just have to pray for no rain on the day of the party.
