It’s Isla’s birthday week! I am busy getting everything ready for it but didn’t want to forget about you all. Today’s post will be a sneak peek at what I’m cooking up (get it?) for it. If you read this previous post, you know that the theme is loosely inspired by ombré and a sunset/sunrise. First up, the menu:
Normally I don’t include the color palette in menu planning posts, but it was a strong influence on what I decided to serve, so I included it. I wanted to keep the fare light as it’s a casual, afternoon event – can’t be stuffy with a 1-year old birthday girl crawling around. There will be fruit kabobs, the birthday girl’s smash cake, cupcakes, some delicious cheeses and fruity, spirited drinks: Champagne Sunrise cocktails and Strawberry Agua Fresca (non-alcoholic). We’ll see if I get inspired to add anything else. .
Ahh!! I can’t believe our little lady is one year old! For live pics from the party, follow me on Instagram.
Have you planned a sunrise/sunset inspired party? Anything you think that I can’t pass up that I could still add last-minute? Thursday’s post will be a preview of the decor. Talk to you then – or before if you leave me love in the comments 🙂
