one jars

This party was for a one year old, but I knew that children of all ages would be there. A good way to include party guests of varying ages is to set out activities that they can just grab and do with little explanation. For example, these jars held bubblegum, mini bubbles usually used at weddings, sidewalk chalk, and sand shovels. The party was held outside at a park, so these were great for the kids to use there or to take home and have for later.

  2. Awesome idea! I love the jars. Where did you get them? I think they would be fab in my sewing studio to hold snaps, buttons, labels, etc.

  5. Thank you for the allergy-free cake and frosting recipes. My son is turning one soon and he has a severe cows milk allergy, so I was wondering what I was going to do about a cake. This helps a lot! Thank you!

  7. Hi Regina–I can’t remember exactly where I got those gumballs, but if you are in Utah, Gygi’s has lots of colors.

  10. Hi jennifer–The pink chalk was in a combo pack of colors from the grocery store or Walmart (I can’t remember). I just took the pink and white ones out. The pink shovels are from iParty

  11. I found this post via Pinterest, searching for “lactose free cake.” My daughter is turning one in just 9 days and she is VERY lactose-intolerant. I’ve never dealt with allergies or intolerances before so this entire first year has been a huge learning experience for me–right down to “how to make a lactose-free birthday cake?!” haha Thank you so much for sharing your recipe for the cake and frosting!! :) <3

  12. Hmm it seems like your site ate my first comment (it was super long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I had written and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog. I as well am an aspiring blog blogger but I’m still new to everything. Do you have any tips for newbie blog writers? I’d really appreciate it.
