We invited over all his friends from mothers' group along with family and friends. There were about 25 adults and 10 kids.
The some of the food we had included:
* fruit bowl
* hot spinach and artichoke dip w. turkish bread
* white chocolate fountain with strawberries
* rice krispy treats
* chocolate truffles
* fabulous birthday cake
The cake was not made by us (as you can tell, because it's beautiful). It was an incredibly moist orange cake.
We did a ton of crafting for the party (many hours to be exact). My favourite was the monthly banner.
We set up a little candy station for our "thank you for coming" treat
We also had a birthday wishes station, where people could leave Hudson a birthday message.
The chocolate fountain was a fun little something special. It looked prettier after the sliced strawberries were put out, but I didn't snap a picture.
I helped a bit with blowing out the candle, but Hudson managed to inhale the cake himself (especially going after the frosting)
We set out a ball pit and tent with toys for the babies to explore. And the adults cracked open beers and sparkling wine. It was a perfect day. Hudson had a ton of fun, and it was so nice to have everyone over. I'm already starting to think about his 2nd birthday (I kid, well kinda).
Off to be productive,
