Pink Elephant 1st Birthday Party

At the beginning of November, my baby girl turned 1! Can you believe it? It seems like just yesterday I posted this -

But here we are – one year later and more in love with her than ever! The inside scoop is that we call her “peanut!” Because she is our tiny little peanut – so I wanted to do a party that sort of revolved around that! and all I could think of was pink elephants -

cute right?

Disclaimer: This party is the perfect example of why I need a professional photographer to follow me around everywhere – because I did a ton of really cute things – and then either got really crappy pictures or none at all. sad.

I set the whole party up so all the dinner items would be at the kitchen table and the dessert items would be in the front room.

For dinner I served homemade chicken pot pie, rolls, green salad and a raspberry sherbet/sprite drink. Personally – I thought it turned out awesome!

In the front room I set up the candy jars, cupcakes and both cakes -

I used my Silhouette to cut out the “Happy Birthday Tenley” Banner, the cupcake and cake toppers and the little labels for the candy jars -
Then added a bunch of pink and white balloon and Chinese lanterns!

Loved your ideas.. Thought up the same theme for my daughters party next month. Can I ask where you got the elephant stationary and confetti/ did you make them?
Thanks.

I am thinking of doing the same thing for my daughter's birthday party. Where did you get the banner and elephant designs? I have been looking for a certain style of elephant and I love this one!
