Sloane's 1st Birthday Party

Sloane turned one on February 19th. Even though Sloane had an ear infection, she was in great spirits for her 1st birthday party. It was a "Pinkalicious" party with pink and cupcakes galore! Here some pictures of the decorations and some of my favorites of Sloane.

I made two wreaths for Valentine's Day with some friends, and decided to use two shades of pink instead of any red so I could use them for her party. I hung them from our bookshelves with ribbon decorated with cupcakes. I found the idea and instructions on another blog. You can find the wreath instructions here.

The strawberry cupcake recipe is posted on my blog for my recipe of the week, but below was a popular dish at the party, so I included the recipe here. In the picture above, they are the sandwiches already assembled shown on the right. These are great, because you can make them the night before and bake them before serving. Enjoy!

Party Rolls

* 2 packages "Pepperidge Farm" or "King's Hawaiian" party rolls
Cut off top of rolls and layer with meat and cheese accordingly. Suggested layers: Ham, Swiss cheese, Ham or Turkey, Cheddar cheese, Turkey

1 stick butter, melted
1/2 tsp. Worchestershire sauce
1/2 Tbsp. mustard
1 tsp. poppy seeds
1 Tbs. dried onion flakes

Pour liquid mixture over top of sandwiches. Marinate in fridge for 5 hours or overnight covered. Bake at 350 degrees uncovered for 15 minutes or until cheese is melted or tops are brown.

This is her party hat and bib. They were too precious to get dirty, so Sloane wore them for pictures only!

I couldn't resist taking a picture of her tutu in motion. She looked so cute, but the skirt made it difficult to crawl.

Here is Sloane starting to eat her cupcake. She took dainty pickings at first, but then started to dive in once she realized she liked it so much.
