This weekend was my daughters FIRST Birthday! So exciting! I have been planning and anticipating this party for a while now. You never quite understand how time-consuming (planning and decorating) birthday parties actually are until you’re a parent. I have a sense of relief that it’s over, but I’m also a little sad because that means my wittle babies are growing up. After this weekend, I definitely have a new respect for my parents for throwing me the best parties for all those years.
We held the party at our house. We opted for a monkey theme, because well, monkeys are super cute. A few things didn’t quite go as planned, but that will be expected when you’re dealing with one year olds. We definitely didn’t anticipate our whole family coming down with the most awful colds only a day before the party. One of my daughters didn’t want any part of smashing her cake and the other one was having the best day of her life! Overall, we had a wonderful time with great guests! I’m so thankful to have this memory for the rest of my life. Here are some snapshots from the party:
The next day– 2nd attempt at eating her cake and she loved every bit of it. Success!
Happy 1st Birthday to the greatest little gifts, ever!
