Show Us Your Life: Kids Parties


Today’s theme for Show Us Your Life is kids parties. For those of you who may be new, I will recap my daughter, Lucy’s first birthday party. Lucy’s BFF is Tigger, so it was a no-brainer to throw her a Tigger party. The upside? Not many people throw Tigger parties, so it was unique. The downside? Not many people throw Tigger parties, so it was hard to find items that didn’t include Pooh.

This was the invitation we sent out. Joe designed it, and I still love it. Since Lucy’s birthday fell on a Sunday, we were able to have her party on her actual birthday, which was fun!

We had the party at my former church. The fellowship hall was the perfect location. My birthday girl wore the “Tigger tutu” I made her.



These were the centerpieces I made. I thought they turned out pretty well!


We had balloons in Tigger’s colors, and I ordered a banner with Lucy’s name off Etsy. In retrospect, I would have ordered one that said “Happy Birthday” as well so the two banners would match, but oh well.



I had a table set up by the door where I displayed two pictures of Lucy — one from the day she was born and a recent picture — and had a signature mat for everyone to sign. I also had a coloring table set up for the bigger kids.



And, of course, there was cake! A coworker made THREE cakes for my sweet girl — a Tigger cake, which was the main event; two smash cakes; and an extra cake. We were expecting many more people than actually came, but a lot had to cancel the day of the party.




I had so much fun planning Lucy’s first birthday party, and I already have ideas rolling around for the big “2”!
