The PARTY!!

We had a fun party to Celebrate Oliver turning ONE and Kreg graduationg, the Latter may have been a side note :) I planned and with the help of my sister and good friend Kami executed a pretty cute party! I have always LOVED the color combo Red and Aqua, I wanted to do Oliver's room in those colors when he was born but I couldnt find the perfect fabric so what better than to do his first birthday bash in the color scheme! It really turned out just the way I had imagined it in my head. There were a few mishaps(rained out causing us to reschedule, another party happening at the park at the same time We made it work! and A Drink dispenser that kept loosing its nozzle causing aqua punch to spray everywhere), but what party doesnt have those! We had pizza, Chips, Fruit, Potato Salad (made by our good friends the Cardons), Cupcakes, licorice, mints, and aqua colored sixlets. The weather was gorgeous and the kids had fun playing on the grass and at the park! Oliver had so much fun exploring and doing his own thing and ofcourse being sung to and eating mass amounts of his very own smash cake!

Here are some shots of the party. They are a bit out of order.

The pretty but crazy drink dispenser. The whole nozzle would come out resulting in juice spilling all over.
