A first birthday is a BIG deal. It’s a year full of first for your little cutie but it’s also a year full of first for the parents. I like to call it a congratulations parent party. Congratulations you made it, with a lack of sleep, new routines, and milestones galore. That all being said celebrating my daughter’s 1st birthday was pretty special. I was lost on a good party theme so we stuck with two colors that were fun, happy, and welcomed summer; pink and green.
Shout it from the roof tops my little lady is turning ONE. My friend Julia at the blog A Little Bee Told Me made these adorable invitations. All I said were the colors and that I wanted a picture of the birthday girl. We had a bit of fun with a photo shoot and Julia took it from there. Once I had some basic details set it became a lot of fun. I pulled all sorts of things that are fun when you’re one, toys and bubbles etc.
I set a special place for cake time, and remembered the background. There will be tons of cameras clicking that day, having a neutral and nice backdrop will allow the focus to be on your little one. These photos are bound to become a special part of your memories and scrapbooks.
Time for CAKE! Cake it’s the best part of a 1 year old’s birthday party. Watching them potentially smash into that much sugar, as an adult, can be hysterical. We had two little cakes as my husband was away at work; so we celebrated once when he was home and again with family. He melted my heart by having flowers delivered to both my daughter and I that day.
Kids and balloons, can’t go wrong with fun decorations. I also had pre-made a little frozen treat full of toys for our two pup friends to keep them busy on the warm day. Think of it as a puppy pinata.
I was exhausted after a busy day of fun and hosting. It was amazing to be surrounded by the people that will make up my daughter’s “village”; cause lord knows I’ll need a village.
