Randomly one evening when I was putting Kricket down for the night. We were giving daddy/David goodnight kisses. As we were walking off he told her that he hoped she had the sweetest of dreams about unicorns and pretzels. I turned around and mouthed to him W T F?! He goes I don’t know. It quickly became a joke with us and now we always say it. So of course I had to figure out how to turn this into the theme of her first birthday party.
I decided to do the decor in unicorns and the appetizers that were out when our parents arrived was an assortment of gluten free pretzels and cheese. So basically the pretzels were the centerpiece on the coffee table. It was the sweetest little birthday party!
I wanted to do a big backyard party but at the end of the day she got to spend quality one on one time with all of her grandparents! I found most of the decor on Amazon. The white plates were from Ikea. I REALLY wanted glass plates and I was able to get these for $2.50! The chargers are a heavy plastic and so gorgeous in person. They really gave the table a princess fee. The topiary’s weren’t the easiest thing to put together but they were the absolute cutest and I loved them on the table!
As for the menu everything except for the appetizer was low carb, gluten free and sugar free. Our guests could NOT believe it because they said everything was so tasty and hearty it didn’t seem healthy! See below for the recipes.
- Gluten Free Pretzels (These are the one’s that I served FitJoy Gluten Free Tangy Dijon Mustard, Quinn Grain Free Pretzel Chips, Snack Factory Gluten Free Pretzel Crisps)
- Manchengo Cheese aged three months
- Baked Ranch Chicken
