Rae had a beautiful first birthday on Saturday. I couldn't have imagined a more perfect day, it was warm and sunny with family and friends. I designed and hand made these invitations on my Cameo Silhouette using inspiration from a few different invitations that I found on Etsy. I love the little poem and simplicity of the invitations!
I then set to work on the props for the day including this lemonade stand. I almost didn't make it but then found all the pieces that I needed at Michael's and couldn't resist how easy it all was.
I glued the pieces together with wood glue and painted it yellow using the leftover wall paint from her nursery. I then cut out the lettering and decorations using my Cameo, that machine was so easy to use and crucial for all of my decorations.
I put the lemonade stand at the curb with a few balloons to let people know where the party was. Rae was so adorable in her little lemon shirt from Janie and Jack!
I hung a few pieces of twine and placed all of my favorite photos from the past year. Rae loved looking at all of her pictures.
One of Estevan's coworkers used to be a professional pastry chef and this was her gift to Rae. It was absolutely perfect and was the centerpiece for the day.
Rae didn't get too messy but she did enjoy her taste of cake!
The cake was vanilla with a raspberry filling, so decadent.
She liked the rind more than the actual watermelon; good thing she had her bathing suit on!
