My baby is one, y'all. ONE. I really can't believe it.
Sugar crash happens quick. We went from this...
...to this in no time at all.
We said we weren't going to have a big birthday bash. We said we were just going to do a cupcake or two and have some family over. We weren't going to be those parents that went crazy for a birthday party that the recipient will never remember. Um, yeah. We partied our tails off this weekend. I'm exhausted.
I had some really grand plans for the birthday party considering we weren't going to do anything big. It just sort of snowballed. I didn't get to do everything I wanted to, but I sure did have fun decorating for the party. I made some garland by sewing card stock circles together, one after the other. A friend made a bunch of those tissue paper poufs. I bought a few things at Hobby Lobby. I had a table for dyeing Easter eggs and a huge spread for all the party guests. Aaaand, I didn't think to take a single picture of the set up until the party was long over. It was Pinterest-worthy, I promise ;) You'll just have to trust me. This is just the aftermath.
I did want to share the banner I made with pictures from baby Jane's first year. I was pretty proud of it when it was finished. I had a photo from each month, including a few half-month pics. I mounted each photo on a piece of card stock and then cut some triangles from scrap booking paper to look like bunting. I have to say that it was pretty cute. I think I may just have to keep it up for a while. I may have enjoyed it more than any of the party guests.
Between birthday and Easter this weekend, baby Jane may just expect cake every night. Hope you all had a happy Easter!
