Addison Taylor Lynch, daughter of Matthew and Missy Lynch of South Fulton, recently celebrated her 1st birthday with a party held at the Willingham Center in Fulton.
A “cupcake and polka dot” theme was used. Guests were served barbecue, nachos, hotdogs, vegetables and cupcakes decorated as sheep. There were also a chocolate fountain with strawberries and marshmallows for dipping, a punch fountain, a two-tiered cake decorated as a cupcake and ice cream.
The party area was decorated with an arch covered with coordinating balloons and a monogrammed highchair cover. The tables were decorated with polka-dot tablecloths, photo tents and candles. Centerpieces included vases filled with feathers, glittery sticks and iridescent colored stones. They were trimmed with matching polka-dot ribbons with labels saying “Guess who’s turning one?”
A photo banner which read “Happy 1st Birthday, Addison” was hung to complete the look. An oversized banner was placed on pink fabric with balloons on each side as the focal spot for opening gifts.
Children enjoyed a cupcake piñata filled with candy and were given bouncy balls, watches and glow necklaces. A custom-made birthday wish box, used as a Lynch family tradition, was provided so she may read birthday wishes for years to come.
Guests also received favors including water bottles with a first birthday poem and thank you photo gift boxes filled with bubbles, play-doh, candy and goldfish bites.
The birthday girl was dressed in a white shirt, decorated with a cupcake which had her name on it, and a tutu.
Attending, in addition to her parents, were her grandparents, Royce and Charlotte Nicks of Union City and Royce and Kathy Lynch of South Fulton.
Others attending were her aunts and uncles, Jenny and Jim Coy Houston of Medina, April and Brandon Gallimore of Fulton, Jason Arnold of Dyer, Anna Luker of Trenton and Robbie Graves of Jackson.
