Calling for ideas

Squeaky is going to be 1 in just a month! I can't believe how fast this past year has gone.
I want to do a party for him with and Easter egg hunt to go along with it since I will most likely be having his party the Saturday before Easter. I need some cute ideas people! Some of you are VERY crafty (Connie) so help me out please. Not too elaborate, just cute, simple and fun. I was thinking about doing a brunch type meal with easy food to prepare ahead of time.

Also, with it just being the monkeys and me now, I need some new dinner recipes. I am a vegetarian and now I feel like I need/want to incorporate more meatless dinners in our meal plans. I will have to do it gradually since I have the pickiest eaters living with me. I am taking any and all suggestions for easy meals. I would especially love crock pot meals (meatless of course) that I can put on to cook in the morning and would make my evenings go a little bit smoother.

An Easter/Spring theme would be so great! and I like the brunch idea. For M's party we're having the party at 2pm and I'm serving all of her favorite foods for snacks....cheese, goldfish crackers, pretzels and M&M's. Then the Ladybug cake.

I'm making banner's from triangles of paper and twine to hang everywhere....and lots of balloons and streamers.

I'm not sure about the dinner ideas...my husband demands meat at every meal. I'll look around for you.

I know the feeling about how crazy it seems that your baby is turning one!!! Mine too, in just a few weeks.
As for the meatless dishes, I could give you some good ones, send me your email address. I will start sending you good ones as I've been a vegetarian my whole life.
