1 year old Duckie Party

My poor 3rd child has gets to share a birthday month with Christmas; I'm so sorry sweetie! Really I am. At least you were good enough to come early in the month. That said, she is probably not going to get the all-out-spend-weeks-planning-hoopla of a party that the other 2 have gotten. I will be too busy planning our annual Christmas Cocktail party, cookie baking, or Christmas prepping.

In fact, she got a repeat theme of my oldests 1st birthday party... the Duckie Party. While the cake was the SAME exact cake I did for Charlotte AND I had the ball pit again, I DID however change the decor and  party favors.
I had the cake pan already, and had figured out how to decorate it for Charlotte's birthday (top) so doing it again for Lizzie was a breeze (bottom).

 For Charlotte's party (top), each kid got a bucket with their name painted on it filled with some ball-pit balls and a duckie or two. Lizzie's friends got a plastic cup filled with York Peppermint Patty Pieces - the water - with a rubber duckie sitting on top, all wrapped in cellophane (bottom). They also got a little thing of bubbles

Charlotte (top) got a banner going across the fireplace with a picture for every month. We don't have a fireplace at the new house so for Lizzie (bottom), I made them smaller and put them around the high chair. I think it worked out just a cute.
 I am pleased with how the "Backdrop" for the high chair went; I just took some yellow crepe paper and tied it through one of the blind slats and let it hang down. Super easy!

 I think I have put out a ball-pit (baby pool + ball pit-balls) for EVERY birthday party that has been at the house. The kids love it... clearly! Charlotte (top), Lizzie (bottom)

 Taking a page from my car party playbook, I made duckie crayons using a silicone mold. Then the kids got to color some duckie pages that I downloaded online.

  1. What a gret party- love the photos on the high chair. That duck cake is cool as well- I remember my mum making me a duck cake for my third birthday with chocolate wafer beaks and my grandfather pulled one of them out to eat and the whole cake fell apart!

  2. December birthdays are difficult, but you pulled off a super easy fun party. I have a friend with two kids each with a December birthday. She plans parties for them in January.

  3. Looks like a great party! Thanks for linking up at Take it on Tuesday!
