Elizabeth’s 1st Bday…..Let Them Eat Cake

Elizabeth’s 1st Bday…..Let Them Eat Cake


Just a few weeks ago we celebrated our daughter’s First Birthday!… Man! did the year go by fast!


Elizabeth is our first baby girl and with that, being a new mom and new parents I feel you find out so many new things about yourself. I feel that not only are you caring for and watching this little human grow before your eyes and learning to do things everyday, but you yourself are growing and learning new things about life. Everything she does makes me think of the future for her. Things that she’s learning now and her little personality that is coming through makes me think about what she will be like as she gets older.

Being a Mom for me this year I have felt a bigger love than I ever could have imagined, I catch myself just smiling and staring at her. She has brought so much happiness to my husband and I, we feel so proud and are filled with so much love!

Preparing for Elizabeth’s First Birthday party was something I was So excited about… (I started planning for it four months before 🙂 ) All of the little details from her party are all pretty simple DIY’s that I made and I think you can too! (I had a serious addiction to Michael’s while preparing for her party, I couldn’t stop crafting!!!!)

Here are all the details from her party…. Hope you enjoy!
