Annie's Birthday Party... take one

Annie turned one on June 28, 2008. Knowing that we would be moving shortly after her birthday, we decided to have two parties-- one in Shreveport, and one in New Jersey. We went with a red, light blue, and navy color scheme and a nautical feel.

I designed the invitations and had them printed by vistaprint:

For decorations in Louisiana, I made a flag bunting with annie's name on it and scattered a few GIANT red and white balloons throughout our living room. I also covered a set of party hats in the same fabric I used for the bunting.

We used red, white, and blue partyware:

For party favors, we gave away Koozies matching the invitations:

I made Annie a white cake with cream cheese frosting. The middle layer was filled with strawberries and blueberries, and I used berries to decorate the top as well. I am no baker, and to be honest, this cake was a minor disaster. The layers fell apart, and I needed to use about two cups of icing to spackle it all together!
