Avery's Vintage Ice Cream Shop First Birthday Party

Anyone who knows me knows that I love to plan a party. This is slightly embarrassing to admit, but I had been planning and thinking about Avery's first birthday party since before she was even born! I saw the cutest vintage ice cream shop birthday party on pinterest and I knew it would be the cutest theme for her party. Of course when I was planning and dreaming of all this I had no idea just how much work it would be to pull this off with a one year old! Thankfully I had a ton of help from my family. Also, I decided to hire a caterer to do the ice cream. A local ice cream shop will bring their ice cream cart and all the toppings to your house which took a lot of the stress away of trying to figure out how to keep the ice cream cold, etc. However, the morning of the party, I was wondering what I had gotten myself into, but it all came off with out a hitch!

Here are some pictures from her very sweet :) birthday party. 


Avery's invitations were purchased from this Etsy Shop, Paper Street Press, and I was so happy with the way that they turned out! 





Kris' dad built this amazing lemonade/ice cream stand for Avery's party! I envision us using it a lot as she gets older. I used it at the party to hold the party favors. I did not have a huge budget, so I bought pink ice cream cups from Pick Your Plum and filled them with mini bags containing ice cream sundae toppers (gummy bears, sprinkles, crushed oreos, etc). I tied them up with some cellophane bags from Michaels and added  a personalized sticker to the front. The sticker came as part of the party suite that matched Avery's invitation. 

 My mom was a HUGE help with the dessert bar! This photo contains the cake pop ice cream cones and cupcake ice cream cones. The ice cream cone cupcakes had pink butter cream icing, melted chocolate, white butter cream and then a red m&m on top.




 Chocolate dipped nutter butters were an easy and cute dessert! 

Rice Krispy Treat pops 

Sugar ice cream and cupcake cookies 

 We also had some non-ice cream options with turkey & cheese sandwiches and pb&j sandwiches.



 I quickly added "Happy Birthday" to our kitchen chalkboard!

 The birthday girl!! She is wearing a Mud Pie dress with leggings underneath. She was NOT a fan of the tulle touching her legs so the leggings saved this outfit! 


 A custom "all about me" sign that I had made for Avery's party. I was so happy with it that I got a mini version to put in her memory box!
