If you know Madelyn, you know she is obsessed with pictures, especially pictures of herself. She could spend hours looking through photos. Keeping this in mind, I searched online for first birthday party ideas and came across "1 Year Old in a Flash". Sold! I designed the invites based on the one I found online and had them printed.

It was going to be a tight fit in our house so I needed to come up with an alternative to a sit down meal. I decided to have buffet style soup, salad and sandwiches ready to go when guests arrived. Everyone loved it! And it was super easy for me because I didn't have to worry about serving a meal. Also, I decided to forgo the birthday cake and instead created a fall desserts table. Again, it eliminated the need to serve everyone at once and guests could just choose what they wanted to eat.
Onto the pictures!
