First Birthday

Thursday, September 15, 2011

I have decided that Pinterest and Etsy are taking the world by storm. I went to my best friend's son's first birthday party on Sunday and seriously everything was so adorable. Many of her ideas were from either or both of the above websites and I was just smitten! This girl has mad skills in the party planning department and I can't wait to show you the pictures! Sign me up for April 2013 when it is my baby's first birthday...this girl is hired! By the way she has two of the most attractive kids I've ever seen.

it was a lot of work but it looked amazing!

uncrustables for the kids (ok and me too) as well as deli sandwiches, grapes, and chips!

amazing oreos and the cake that I wish Reid shared. :)

she stayed up till 1:45 painting this beast the night before. worth it? I think so! 

So what do you think? Better than your last birthday party! It was better than mine for sure! I can't even wait to plan something like this for Baby B's first birthday! She gets mommy of the year award!
