A Blabla First Birthday

Tuesday, November 4, 2014
 Our sweet girl turned one on October 29th!
Wow, how this year has flown by!
I never in my life expected it to go by so quickly and it makes me a little sad to see this year end and a new one begin but yet I'm filled with excitement for what is to come! 
Everly is crazy about her Blabla dolls! I think that Blabla was one of her first words and so it was only fitting that all her Blabla dolls would celebrate this special day along with her. 
The decorating is my most favorite part of any party planning and so I filled the room with lots of tassel garland, ruffled fabric streamers and of course Blabla dolls everywhere!
A party isn't complete without sweet treats to eat and we had them all! 
Cupcakes, cookies, cake pops and the most amazing smash cake you ever did see!! Check out these gold glittered cake pops made by our sweet Claire! I call her my first daughter because I was her nanny for years before I had my children. She will forever be their big sister and my first kid!
Im not the best at baking and so I am super thankful to have such amazingly talented friends who are! My lovely friend Nakia from A Handcrafted Affair Blog made Everlys cake and cupcakes and all I can say is.. 
WOW!!!
She really blew me away with how beautiful it all was and look at this flower topper that she handmade. Simply beautiful!
I knew I wanted a vintage highchair for the party and I was lucky enough to score the perfect one on Craigslist for $25! 
I moved her teepee out to the foyer so that giant Fleur bunny could greet all our party guests as they arrived!

All the garland tassel was made by my sweet friend Holli along with the pink and gold pumpkins and Im absolutely in love with this gold glitter banner made by my friend Heidi! 
This party was truly a labor of love by all. 
Everly wasn't too sure about eating all this cake right away but she eventually got right to it!

Birthday cake is the best!!
Although it looks like tears, this is actually pure excitement and joy!!
It was a wonderful party full of friends and sweet memories! I am so grateful to all my friends that helped me bring it all together and those that were able to celebrate this special day with us! 
We are truly blessed in our life!
Happy 1st Birthday my sweet babe! 
I can't wait to see what the next year holds for you! 
XO-Mommy
