A Party for Reese

My original plan was to pretty much do nothing for Reese’s birthday. She’s one, who cares was my thinking. Then Saturday morning while sipping my coffee and writing out my grocery list, I was thinking about snacks & beverages for the party. I thought a lemonade stand would be fun and then it all spiraled from there.

The lemonade stand was kind of the center of the party…lemonade, sun tea, frozen fruits to put in the lemonade. Mason jars, paper name tags tied with twine and paper straws were a hit.┬áThere was also a giant tub full of other beverages; soda, beer, etc. ┬áThen I had a “Summer is Sweet” table with different kinds of candy, I had a “Cool off with a Sno-Cone” station (the kids LOVED that), and a “snack stand” with chips & dips, a veggie tray etc.

I ordered cupcakes for the first time ever, {I normally make them} and I’m officially a convert. While she wasn’t so sure about 20-30 people standing around singing at/to her, Reese loved her cupcake.

We ended the party by opening her gifts. For being 1 she seemed pretty into it.



All in all, it was pretty low-key. Just family and our closest friends gathered around to celebrate our sweet Baby Reese. Exactly what I had envisioned.
