How darling is this RAINBOW CAROUSEL 1ST BIRTHDAY PARTY submitted by Maxine of Enjoy The Small Things?!

Party details and description at bottom of post…

Party description and instructions from Maxine-

“This weekend was my daughter Charlotte’s 1st birthday party! Bittersweet how fast the first year goes by. Since I have a passion for party planning and Charlotte is one of my very favorite “small” things I thought this was a good place to start. I am obsessed with the little details that I truly feel make the party. We held the party at a local carousel and did a modified rainbow color scheme. I wanted it BRIGHT and HAPPY! Just like our birthday girl.

I put together personalized coloring books. I found the little drawstring carousel bags that were the perfect size for crayons and couldn’t pass them up. {drawstring bags available in Kara’s Party Ideas Shop}
The centerpieces were spinning carousel picture frames. I used my favorite pictures of Charlotte from throughout the year, from her newborn photo shoot through her 1 year photo.
I admit I tend go a little over board with my party favors. I can’t help it. I just love giving really nice favors. Since it was the weekend before Memorial day, I thought it was the perfect time of year to give out embroidered beach bags!
Everything was homemade on the snack tower. Top layer is vanilla wafers with different colored vanilla icing, the second tier is chocolate covered pretzels covered in M&Ms, and the bottom tier is my husband’s famous rainbow cookies. These are always the first to go. Of course he made them custom colors to go with the party instead of the traditional red,white, and green.”
