A Girl first Birthday!

I know this post is coming out quite a bit late, but I needed to get through all the craziness and chaos of the holidays before I had some down time to just sit and write. I hope that everyone's holidays were filled with joy and family filled fun!

So my daughter turned one in November and I couldn't have dreamed up a better party than what actually played out! We decided to do a donut party. We had it in the morning around 10, which was perfect. She was able to eat an early lunch around 11 and then have her cake. The invitations, my sister made and they turned out so cute! The caption was, "Donut miss out!" My mom came in town and few days prior and we had so much fun setting up for the party! First off, we made her a pink tutu, because of course, any little girl turning one needs a tutu! We have never made one, but I think it turned out ok. 

Along with the donut theme, we set up a coffee bar for the adults, which I think turned out pretty cute!

For her birthday table, we set up cake stands and put donuts out. I also made muffins and set up her monthly pictures that I took so that people could see how much she had changed! My sister in law made her sweet little smash cake and of course, the table was decorated with pearls! She had to have pearls. 

My mom and I made the letters. It was so much fun and I love making things. The blocks on the table were made by my best friend when she was born. I have lots of crafty people in my life and I am so thankful for that. 

Overall, it was a huge success! And this past year flew by. She went from a little baby to an active, mischievous, sweet, funny little girl. I can not wait to see what the next year holds for her! 

Happy birthday sweet girl! Until next time...
