This morning, we had Charlotte’s first birthday party. It was such a fun time celebrating our sweet girl’s first year of life with some of our favorite people!
I wanted the party to be low stress and simple; I chose the morning so we could party hard until naptime and then put both kids straight to bed (the plan worked!)
I made this sign with all Charlotte’s 1 year “stats”. I wanted it to look like a chalkboard sign, but I did it on a black canvas with paint pens-much easier!
I also made this banner-I’m hoping to hang it in her room or bathroom
We served breakfast- kolaches, cinnamon rolls, and fruit- yum!
The birthday girl didn’t quite know what to think of all those people in her house, but she was ok as long as she was with her
When grocery shopping the other day, I happened to find these “Window Markers”- GENIUS! They kept our little party guests busy, and now we have beautifully decorated sliding glass doors 🙂
Me and my girl, munching on a kolache. I think we look a lot alike in this picture.
Listening intently to Great-Grandmommy
Big brother Grayson was right in the thick of the action, but of course had ears only for his Veggies
Birthday Cinnamon Roll- much better than cake!
And…post nap sillies. Love.
It was a great day celebrating our precious Charlotte!
