check out this sweet banner I found in the millalove Etsy shop!
That little baby in the photo to the right is about to celebrate her very first birthday. First birthdays are always so fun but also sort of difficult to plan because although the party is for a 1 year old, it's really for the adult guests. I think I've come up with a fun theme that bridges the gap... it's a photo/picture themed party.
I already have quite a few ideas in the works, but I need your help with a couple things!
#1) Planning the food is always my absolute least favorite part of party planning! We'll have people in and out between 2pm and 7pm. I really don't want to cook the day of the party, but it does need to look good and keep people from starving... any ideas for easy to serve pretty party foods?
#2) We've hired a professional photographer to do mini photo sessions with the guests. Any ideas for fun props I could put out for people to play with? I also need to come up with a way to make a backdrop or some sort of "stage" area for guests to take pictures themselves.
The two things above are my biggest challenges, but I'm excited to hear any party ideas you might have. I'd love it if you'd link any party ideas (your own or anything you've found around the web) that incorporate photos. Thanks!
