channing's 1st birthday

we held the bird’s first birthday party in our home with friends and family.  i love to set up a good party but also had to keep it easy and affordable.  i actually bought all of the plates and decorations on sale, at target, after valentine’s day.  i did make her cake from scratch - vanilla grapefruit -and made heart shaped pb&j for the other kiddos in attendance.  i used our kitchen island for the display table and moved it in front of the big kitchen/dining room window (which i hung a vinyl heart table cloth in front of for a back drop).  she particularly loved her balloons and seemed to have a wonderful time!
