If you know me, you know I like to have a theme. Not just any 'ol theme, one that is somewhat significant. For Lael's first birthday party I decided to play on her most recent role as Raggedy Ann. I was as busy as a bee with all of my party creations, and once I got started... well, I kinda couldn't stop. :)
Jess and I kind of tag teamed it with picture taking, but she took the bulk of the photographs. This is something that we try to do for one another, and being on the receiving end of it this time, it was such a blessing.
For party favors I painted these little wooden peg dolls as Raggedy Ann and Andy. The children received the dolls and the adults received some delish Jelly Belly beans! I used to love playing with little people figures when I was little and hopefully these (once they don't pose as choking hazards!) will be a great source of imaginative entertainment.
