A colorful first birthday party @ohbotherblog

For Holden’s first birthday party, I wanted to fill the house with color to celebrate the little girl who has brought so much joy (among other things) into our lives this past year. I started with a plan and an idea board. Here’s how it all turned out.

Yes, I actually made those tissue paper pompoms! I totally lucked out by finding those gorgeous rainbow-dyed flower poms (at the grocery store, no less!)

I added fruit of all colors to my beverage dispenser to make “Rainbow Water” (that tasted awesome, btw). Sand buckets made great impromptu wine buckets!

Guests signed a copy of Happy Birthday to You by Dr. Seuss with special messages for Holden.

Of course, the famous rainbow cupcakes made their debut:

While the rainbow cupcakes were a win, my attempts at making Holden’s smash cake were a big ol’ fail. Luckily, my favorite cupcakery saved the day: their huge cupcakes make the perfect-sized smash cake. Holden, it turns out, is a big fan of the sweet stuff:

Overall, I’d say the day was a huge win. It was a lot of work (and a lot of fails in the process) but a lot of fun. Even Sal was pooped out:

Oh, I forgot the cutest part—check out her adorable rainbow romper from IAmDezigns (etsy)!
