It was a little over six months ago that we celebrated Maddie’s first birthday. And I’ve only just got around to posting pictures! For party #1 which was mainly to celebrate with our family and Seattle friends, we decided to do a Super Mario Bros. themed birthday. My brother-in-law Eugene and sister-in-law Chika graciously hosted Maddie’s party since our space wouldn’t have accommodated everyone.
I did a lot of paper crafting for the party, from the banner, to cupcake toppers, to party favor boxes, and even the crowns that Maddie and I wore. To go along with the theme, we dressed up for it which made it super cute. We also hired a paper cut artist to have paper cuts made of each of our guests as a party favor to take home with them. The food was Italian inspired and I even found my old Nintendo and Super Nintendo systems to play with. Despite the rainy day, I think everyone had a great time. Thanks to our family and friends who made it out to the party. And a huge thanks to Eugene and Chika for hosting, as well as helping make a majority of the food.
