Our little girl is ONE! So excited for her and for us! ha ha. We made it/she made it...into the toddler years we go. We had a party this past weekend with family and a few close friends. The day was all about Lily and everyone who loves her. She enjoyed the day and all the kids! I was so proud of how good she was all weekend will all the chaos. I think she knew it was all for her :) I have so many photos that I want to post...from both the party and a trip to the zoo we took as a family on her actual bday. I wanted to spend the day with just the three of us and let Lily see some animals. I will probably spread the festivities over a couple of posts so hang in there with me. Let's start with some party decor! We made the party a Spring Flower themed. First up is the handmade invitations with hand sewn envelopes and I also stitched directly on the invite. I am a "little" crafty :) I love the textures and colors of these invites...
The invites always help me set the look and theme when I am planning a party. Its always a fun project for me and I love creating something new. The spring/flower theme was perfect for Lily's 1st Bday. We had flowers EVERYWHERE in our house. It was awesome. I went to costco and bought a cart FULL of flowers and made my own custom bouquets! Here is a couple photos of some decor...
I know you cant tell in this photo but during the party we had a slideshow of photos of Lily's first year playing on the TV...
A couple more of the decor:
And yes...I know I have an empty frame hung on my wall. For a photographer thats pretty bad. BUT in my defense...I am waiting for her one year shoot :)
Dans idea and FAVORITE part of the party decor was our entry hall. When you walked in you got 3 lines of photos of Lily. They were hung with hemp string and itty bitty clothespins. They are all iphone and/or instagram photos. It was a blast picking them out and hanging them up. I also think it added a nice touch! Good idea Honey!
The guest book was hand cut flowers that everyone wrote on. Each flower will go next to the photo booth strip I had them take and put into an album for Lily! I am still working on the album...I will try and post a couple photos when its complete. I will also had the photo booth pics to their own post. There is some FUNNY ones.
We also added a little "Lily Collage Savings" sign to our change jar. It really is what its for :)
I am going to end part 1 here. Stay tuned for craft, food & gifts!
