With three weeks until Lucy's first birthday I guess I'm a little late in starting to plan her birthday party. Nonetheless, I'm ready to get my butt into gear.
I've gone back and forth as to what sort of 'theme' I want to do. I thought about Yo Gabba theme (her absolute favorite show), bug theme (the girl loves all things bugs), rainbow theme (fun, whimsical), the list goes on. I ultimately decided to wait until she was old enough to understand and really enjoy a themed birthday. So for now I just plan to put together something simple, fun, and of course mostly DIY'd. The party is going to be at my parents' house because our isn't large enough to accomodate the guest list. That being said, I feel the need to make sure that my parents are doing minimal work since they are being so kind to let us use their house.
While we are still tossing around menu ideas, I'm having fun starting on the decor for the party. I've always been a "no pink" gal. It's just not my color, but after having Lucy I have softened my ways a bit. I'm planning pink in our guest room, afterall. Not necessarily pink, but my plan is to do coral, gray, and a few touches of yellow.
At this age our guest list is mostly adults (hence the grownup looking decor scheme), but we do have a few kids in the family so I'd like to get some fun games and activities for them, too.
Lucy and I are venturing out tonight to a few places to start gathering supplies and idea. As always, will keep you posted!!
