Cowgirl 1st Birthday
I went to my dear friend’s daughters 1st birthday party yesterday and it was so cute! She did a cowgirl theme with bandanas, cowboy hats and boot chocolates and adorable themed color books that she made. She found her free coloring pages at www.cowboycoloringbooks.com and then printed, bound them together with colored construction paper and stickers that each kido got to color at the party and take home.
Her adorable suckers were so tasty and cute from Snootie Suckers which is here locally in Roseville Ca and is super affordable. If she doesn’t have what theme of sucker you want she will find it for you and get them made as well! Find her here at SmootieSuckers@yahoo.com and Smootie Suckers on Facebook!
The cupcakes were super yummy. She cut out cute pictures of cowgirls and put bandana paper on the back attached to sticks and inserted in the cupcakes. Using a organic box cake mix and adding cocoa to make chocolate ones helped her save time with still having a tasty treat for everyone.
Olivia got to have her own little cake to eat up as we sang happy birthday. Mom made her an adorable cowgirl apron to wear while she dug in! She also sewed her a precious cowgirl skirt and had her decked out in a little button up plaid shirt too. She had cowgirl boots but one got lost at wal-mart so we didn’t get to see those on her but she was adorable as it is! Oh the joys of first birthdays. You go all out and do special things to remember the time. It's nice when you can find free printables and neat little things to make it cute and affordable.
An activity that we got to do was make cowboy book marks. I think she found supplies at the dollar store (smart momma). We had foamy stickers, book marks, and then ribbons. All the kid’s put their initials on their book marks with stickers and then filled them up with the cowboy stickers they liked. My little guy of course was picking out the cowboy guns to put on his, hehehe. Once a boy always a boy!
I sewed Olivia a birthday hat that she can wear every year with a number in the front that is attached with Velcro so we can put a different number on it for next year. And then I also made her a tooth fairy monster pillow. It’s so stinking cute, I’m definitely going to make these for all my friends kid’s. We got a few cute pictures of Olivia wearing the hat too:)
