I couldn't find any hot air balloon invitations so I decided to make them myself
It was a windy day!
Joe and I made all the decorations
The menu: Curry chicken salad and rolls, chips and dip, strawberry and pineapple salad, raspberry tartlets, a veggie tray, gluten free mac and cheese bites, cupcakes with strawberry frosting, lemonade, soda, and strawberry and lime sangria
Cupcakes and Emilia's "smash cake"
Everyone sang Happy Birthday and we had cake. Emilia liked the candle and tried to use it as a spoon. She only ate a little bit of cake (she isn't a huge sweets lover)
That doesn't mean she doesn't like junk food! I think she has chips in her mouth in half of the pictures I took. She helped herself to the chip bowl all afternoon, which was fine because she was the birthday girl.
Hot air balloon dress from Gymboree
We had a few little guests which was a lot of fun. Emilia loved playing with her neighbor friends and her cousins
Presents! Everyone was so generous and Emilia got so many wonderful things
We sent everyone home with a hot air balloon sucker
Happy birthday, my love!
