Party Recap

We had a casual but fun-filled picnic in the backyard for my son's first birthday! There were handmade quilts and teddy bears scattered about the yard. Tons of yummy picnic food like peanut butter-banana sandwiches, pasta salad and of course cupcakes. There was some tasty Papa and Mama Bear Juice for the adults and juice boxes for the kids. I used picnic basket food holders to make it easy for the guests to carry their lunch to the blankets. Each child took home their own pinwheel and bubbles.
