Nala's 1st Birthday!

Updated on April 29, 2012

Nala's Abby Cadabby Party

Nala's 1st Birthday Party was hosted by me March 31st, 2012.

Most of the prep work was done on Friday which was done with lots of love and chaos (smile). After all the hours spend with my sleeves rolled up, creative ideas coming together left and right and being up for 48 hours straight (wow!), I must say the party was a huge success. Follow me on the journey of where all the magic began.

We decided on the colors hot pink, lavender and caribbean blue to match the colors used in the Abby Cadabby party decorations. The colors blended perfectly.

I did lots of research on Abby Cadabby centerpieces and did indeed find one to inspire me. As you can see, my styrofoam centerpiece that I airbrushed my self which took 2 days to dry, and assemble was the cutest thing on the table.

The personalized banner from BirthdayExpress.com was a nice touch as well.

Seeing that you can't have a kids party without the key ingredient (sugar!!!!), we decided to incorporated a candy buffet filled with lots of goodies.

Party Time!!!!!

Guests started to arrive by the dozens. We had plenty of fun activities for the kids such as creating art using sidewalk chalk, designing their own fairy wands to match the fairy wings they received upon arrival, and of course.... what's a party without a jumper?????

In the mood for photos? A photo booth was set up for guests to take photos and distributed as a keepsake from the party.
