Lucia's Birthday Party!

We celebrated Lucia's first birthday in a BIG way! We had an open house (at my in-laws because it was supposed to rain-which it did) and I think we had at least 40 people come throughout the day! The birthday girl was a wee bit grumpy but it's her party and she can cry if she wants to! And she did. Every time we put her down. We had a rainbow theme so here's a bunch of projects that had something to do with rainbows. (Get ready for onslaught of photos here:)

Invites I made in My Digital Studio
Rainbow Twizzlers packaged cute using Stampin' Up! cello bags, the labels framelits and a retired hostess stamp set.

Retired DSP pennant banner. The letters were cut using the Cricut.

Fun! That cute photo ferris wheel is from Mexico and has pictures from when Lucia was a newborn.

Skittles. Taste the Rainbow.
The main food table.
Pinterest inspired craft.
Cake from Costco I couldn't resist getting.

Fruit Rainbow and yummy dip (mix cool whip with flavored yogurt = YUM!)

Rainbow veggies with mushroom clouds (not lethal ones)

Lucia is handing out invites.

The fam on Lucia's actual birthday (June 27th). The cake didn't turn out very well (it didn't come out of the pan in one piece) so it became a trifle! She's heading to bed here.

It was a great day! I need a vacation to recuperate from all the planning and prep! Thanks to all who came out! She's such a special girl and I was so happy to celebrate such a big day!



  1. Wow! You really outdid yourself! All those rainbows! Who could have thought of all of those different kinds? You're amazing! Wish we could have been there.

  2. Hahaha, mushroom clouds! Everything looks amazing! I wish I could have been there to help celebrate!

  3. We missed you all too but are so happy for the birth of Kesten! He looks amazing Kris! And a boy cousin for Parker to grow up and be best friends with :) :) God is so good!!
