Today we celebrated Ty’s first birthday with a pirate party! I really enjoy cooking and baking for people and being creative but I usually bite off more than I can chew and really stress myself out! So this time I started prepping way in advance and made a lot of stuff that could be prepared ahead of time. I didn’t let myself get too overwhelmed this time, even though I was just finishing up as people were arriving.
It was a gorgeous day today and I couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate my baby’s 1st birthday and Mother’s Day!
For appetizer’s I made these caprese skewers on pirate sword toothpicks:
Then for lunch we had lasagna, ham, seaside potato salad, tossed salad, fruit salad, garlic bread & Italian bread. (Sorry, no pictures!!)
I set up a table for the picky little kids with PB&J sandwiches on goldfish bread, pirate’s booty, juice boxes and some pirate swag.
For desert I made some cake pop ice cream cones, brownie pops & mint chocolate chip cup cakes.
Since it was so nice out, we moved the celebrations outside! The birthday boy approved :)
I hope everyone had a great Mother’s Day!
