Edith's 1st birthday party

We had Edith's party last Saturday and it was the most perfect day. The weather was in the low 60s and sunny, both kids took well timed naps so they weren't grouch monsters, and it was just a lovely / relatively low key party.

We didn't really have a theme except the colors were pink and gold. We decided to do a chicken nacho bar since that permitted our friends with food allergies / vegetarians options without us having to go all out on alternatives. We bought rotisserie chickens from Costco and shredded them, Jon's mom made rice and beans, and we had tortilla chips, Mexican cheese, lettuce, onions, salsa, black beans, jalapeƱos, and sour cream. We also got a veggie tray from Costco and my mom brought fruit skewers. It was a pretty easy thing to prep and everyone raved about it!
My mom also made Edith's smash cake. However, being the lady that she is, Edith was completely unwilling to do any actual smashing.
The main cake was from our favorite little bakery and was so cute:
As of now, this is the only picture I have of Edith in her party dress, but I'm hoping to steal some pictures from my dad when he posts them:
It was the perfect day and I am so grateful for everyone who came to celebrate our precious girl.
