Happy First Birthday- Baby Susan!

12 Comments 10 December 2011

Meet my talented niece Ruth Gindi! You may think that this party was personally decorated by Amy Atlas herself, but Ruth single handedly pulled off this fabulous DIY  first birthday party for her little daughter in less than two weeks. When I was a kid, I was lucky if I got a birthday sponge cake layered with cherry and pineapple jam-(why on earth did my mom keep choosing those um….. yummy flavors??), and some balloons plastered onto the ceiling, but it seems that those memories are fading fast as we speed up to 2011!!!

Modern moms like Ruth Gindi take the cake when it comes to entertaining nowadays!! Ruth whisked through many gourmet kosher cookbooks for her party menu,  but mentioned that she was especially inspired by Kosher Elegance, the new gorgeous cookbook by Efrat Libfroind. She also personally printed out all of the party invites and girly food printables at home on her printer.

So excited to post these pictures- thanks Ruth! Gorgeous job!!!  Love, Auntie Marlene

“Hey Aunt Marlene !

Here are a few pictures from my daughter’s 1st birthday party. The theme was bows of course! And everything was decorated pink and white.
The menu was kid friendly as well as adult friendly…
roasted corn salad, exotic cabbage salad,
veggie burgers with chummus, wheatberry salad,
fig,goat cheese and carmelized onion pizzas, tri color tomato salad ,
roasted veggie wraps, Fred’s salad,
tri color sandwich stacks,
sambusak, spanach jiben Syrian recipe for spinach and cheese muffins), bow- tie noodles, baby pizzas
strawberry yogurt with granola, and berry salad.
Some of my desserts were:
cheesecake pops, chocolate covered strawberries,
bow shaped chocolate lollypops, pink rice krispy treats,
french macaroons, merengues, mini cupcakes,
White chocolate fruit cream dream, and much more!!
I purchased downloads on Etsy.com for all the food labels, straw flags and giveaway boxes.
 I also wrapped each glass cube or vase I was using in pink ribbon and finished it off with a bow to carry out the theme.
The number 1 centerpiece was made by the new Ave P and East 3rd florist. He was very well priced!
I had so much fun planning and  decorating this party!! Hope you enjoy the pictures!
