She's One!

Happy 1st Birthday Violet!

My little baby celebrated her 1st birthday today!  Her actual birthday is tomorrow, April 16th, but we had a little party at our house today to celebrate the special occasion.  It was such a lovely day.  Violet could not have been more adorable all day.  She was such a sweet bunny, enjoying every moment of the day. 

I made her a special birthday crown, with the number 1 on the front and some pretty frangipani (plumeria) flowers on the side.  My absolute favourite flower, for their beauty and smell!  My wonderful husband made the most delicious Creamy Mixed Mushroom Lasagna and Caesar salad.  We are Caesar salad fanatics and have perfected a mouth watering masterpiece (in our opinion!).  I will have to post our recipe soon.  Of course, we followed lunch with a scrumptious white birthday cake (another favourite of mine!) and some ice cream.  Oh, I just LOVE food!

Violet wore a beautiful dress that was made by my sister-in-law.  She actually made it for my older daughter, as a gift for her 1st birthday.  I was so happy to see it fit Violet so well, especially on her birthday!  It is the oliver + s birthday party dress.  The butterfly fabric was perfect for it.

Is there anything else in here?

I wish for...

First taste of cake...

It's delicious!
