I thought I would kick of the "Parties from the Past" with one of my first parties. It was my daughters 1st birthday and it was a Tinkerbell theme. Please excuse the picture quality. The party was held in 2005 before I owned a digital camera. Here is my little Princess sitting in her thrown.
I made my daughter's smash cake. It was modeled after a cookie jar I had seen online.
To make the mushroom shaped cake the right size for my little princess, I used a jumbo muffin pan.
I purchased a plastic tinkerbell from a vendor on ebay since I couldn't find anything in town. I was very proud of the final results.
The rest of the decorations were very simple. A few streamers, balloons, and a birthday banner. We had a make your own sandwich bar with a variety of chips and dips and a cake from a local bakery.
The kids played with a few toys in the living room, while the adults ate dinner. I didn't have any organized game since the kids were so young.
Then the birthday girl got to have her cake and eat it too!
