We had Blaykleigh's first birthday party last Sunday and it turned out spectacular!!! I was so glad to have my mom here; her creative touches are always the best. Everything came together perfectly and we had a house-full of wonderful people that came to celebrate Blaykleigh's first year (Thanks again everyone). It was definitely a bitter sweet moment for me -- my little baby bird is growing up before my eyes.
I made a lot of them which was fun; got to put my sewing machine to use for the banner! And the party hats turned out perfect -- think I may start a new homemade party hat 'tradition' for all of B's birthdays. (Of course I say that now, I am sure several years from now when her party guests reach the double digits that idea will be out the window-ha!)
Vanilla cupcakes with strawberry frosting -- delish!!!
The birthday girl.
The most beautiful birthday girl around at that.
The "Thank You" gifts.
Adorable bathtub books I found & bubbles for Miss Tate-I think she is past the bathtub book stage.
The 'little' party guests.
Little miss got tons of wonderful birthday presents.
All the little ones were wanting to help B open her gifts, it was really cute.
Daddy & Mommy with the birthday girl!
(I can't believe my mom came all the way from Colorado to be here for B's birthday and I didn't even get a picture with her and the birthday girl!) OH! And doesn't Blaykleigh look thrilled ;)
The SMASH cake.
She so delicately picked the tiniest pieces off her cake at first.
Then Jason showed her what a smash cake is all about!
She was one messy girl!
