Vik’s 1st Birthday Party

On our last full day in Northern Michigan we celebrated Vik’s first birthday…and on the actual day he was born!  We have lived on this little dirt lane of ours for twenty summers, and most of the surrounding cottages have been in the same family for generations.  We have grown up with our neighbors, and now there is a new generation of little ones.  We all gathered to celebrate our little Vik, and it was the sweetest party.

We kept things simple- pretty decorations, finger food, little cupcakes, a pinata, face painting and bubbles.  The tree house also provided endless entertainment- the kids attached a small cup to the pulley and spent most of the party passing cupcakes and treats up to each other.

Perhaps the biggest source of joy was the pinata.  I followed this tutorial, and it was very easy, although a bit time consuming.

Everyone kept asking us if this could be a yearly thing…and oh, we hope it can be!  There is really no better place to party than on our gorgeous lake, with old friends and adoring grandparents.

Happy birthday dear baby boy.  You have added endless amounts of joy to our lives.

    How can it be a year??!! We all missed you and suddenly what a feast! It's lovely to see what you've been doing in such a beautiful part of the country. It's the people that make a party and you got it just right.
