For the past two weeks, I have been talking nonstop about the recipes and goodies served at my daughter’s first birthday party. Today I thought I would put them all together in one post with lots of fun pictures from Ava’s big day! I hope you enjoy!
Yes, that is my daughter’s face attached to rolled silverware…..it was a LONG winter…we had a blizzard…so there!
Cranberry Walnut Chicken Salad Sandwich
Grape Pear Salad – this is one of my daughter’s favorites!
Now it’s time for the best part!
Ricotta Chocolate Cups with Raspberries
This is my Mother-in-Law’s recipe….so simple……Dissolve a 3 oz pack of gelatin (we went with strawberry) in 1 cup of hot water then combine with 1 cup of vanilla ice cream. Pour into the vessel of your choice and refrigerate until set.
And, of course, the birthday girl’s Wholesome First Birthday Cake!
Once everyone at the party was on a sugar high, it was time to write letters! Yes, letters. I asked everyone to write a letter to Ava that we will seal in envelopes and then give to her on her 18th birthday. I am so excited about these letters and truly hope that she will know how much she is loved!
Happy Birthday Baby Girl! Love, Mom
