You guys…its official. This past weekend we celebrated Harper’s First Birthday! I am having allllll the feels about it. How did she grow up so fast?! I swear I blinked and here we are! Things have been so crazy around here I wasn’t really sure what to do for a party. Of course she is only 1 and will never remember it, but she is my last one, so I just HAD to do something! Plus who doesn’t love the chance to do something special with the ones you love most?!
We still kept everything super simple, but I absolutely love how it turned out! I was going to be a little boring this time around and just do a cake and some cupcakes, but of course my sister + mom stepped in and came up with a theme. We based the colors/decor off of this little book we love! Having a theme really does make throwing together a party a breeze. A theme makes everything flow together. And bonus, it makes you look like you were so on top of it too!
I reached out to my amazing friend Megan from Sweet Tooth Fairy (who just had her SIXTH baby mind you) and you guys she completely blew my mind. I cannot get over how perfect the cake turned out. And if you think it looks good, you gotta taste it. If you haven’t tried her treats you need to! She takes such simple flavors you know + love and makes them taste absolutely amazing. And this is not an ad! We all loved every bite…even the leftover cake we had for breakfast! Besides making the out of this world cake, she made the cutest matching cupcakes, and included the yummiest popcorn to match!
I think my favorite part of the whole party was not only watching Harper light up at all the extra attention, but watching the reaction of my other little people. They were SO excited over every little detail and really wanted to be part of making her feel special. As much as I hate how fast they are all growing up, I love growing through these new stages with them, and am just feeling so lucky to be their mom! Happy First Birthday Baby Girl!
