I remember the day my daughter was born like it was yesterday. Here I am, 11.5 months later, planning her 1st birthday party – I’m not even going to try and pretend like I don’t tear up every day thinking about how much she has changed in the last year, because I totally do. #noshame
Anyways, with all of my tears, comes SO MUCH EXCITEMENT because we have decided to throw Briella a ballerina tu-tu birthday party (gold, pink and white color scheme)!
I searched all over Etsy.com and finally found her the most beautiful birthday outfit: a white onesie with gold lettering that says “ONE,” a light pink tu-tu and a beautiful glitter and gold bow. She is going to look like such a princess!
We are going to buy her a formal, fondant cake – I haven’t decided on the design yet, but of course it will be something ballerina/tu-tu related. =)
Oh, AND – I am going to make her one of these cupcake dresses, too!
If you haven’t guessed it yet, PINTEREST HAS BEEN MY BEST PARTY PLANNING FRIEND!
Here is a sneak peak of her birthday invitations, too! (I AM OBSESSED)
Like any normal mother, I am so excited about my child’s 1st birthday. Let me just tell you a little story about someone who tried to rain on my party planning parade….An anonymous person brought to my attention that someone else had a birthday around the same time Briella’s party is scheduled for, and she felt the need to tell me I should be considerate and have a “joint birthday party” for Briella and this other person.
IS SHE CRAZY?!
You know what my response was? NO WAY. This is my FIRST CHILD’S, FIRST BIRTHDAY. I will not (under any circumstances) have a joint birthday party with someone else. I will not buy two cakes, one for my baby and one for someone else. I will not sing “Happy Birthday” twice, or have two groups of people opening presents at the same time. This is a HUGE MILESTONE for us, and if someone else doesn’t like that…it’s simple…DON’T COME! =)
Is that mean? Maybe…But, I truthfully don’t care. (sorry?)
Anyways – WE CAN’T WAIT!
Stay tuned for party pictures! =]
