A Little Bird Told Me...IT'S YOUR BIRTHDAY

A few months ago, I nailed down the theme of my Joy's first birthday: A little bird told me...It's your birthday.  Each of my girls' first birthdays have been themed around the time of year they were born: summer, winter, and spring.  I had so much fun gathering items and preparing for her special day.

Y'all know I love a good party and Joy's first birthday was no exception!  We celebrated our baby girl's big day on Saturday with a good ole' family gathering.

You think Joy is a little vain giving out pics of herself as party favors!?  *truth: She has a pretty proud and doting momma!

If you live in the Tyler area and are looking for a place to get cakes, contact me!!! We have used the same place for every special occasion and she always exceeds our expectations!

 How adorable is this cake?

 I used a lot of the decor from Joy's room for the party.

budget: $150.00
actual party cost: $115.00
cake: $60.00
snacks: $15.00
decor: $15.00
plates/napkins: $10.00
birthday outfit: gift from Gaga and Tat
favors: $15.00
Tomorrow is Joy's actual birthday-- more birthday and party posts to come!

    Such a gorgeous party! And your hair looked great, by the way. My favorite shot is the one of you and Joy looking at each other.

  3. What a beautiful party! Your daughter is so adorable.

  4. Oh, that pic of her looking at you just melted my heart! And, love, love the theme! How original. The cake is too cute. A beautiful day for a precious little girl!

  5. Thanks so much, Lea! I sure do love planning parties for my girls!! It's special for all of us!

  6. Thanks, Cat. I'm trying to get used to having a mop of hair and fight the urge to cut it! It's been so long since it was this long! :)

  7. thanks, Lisa! I love how it turned out. She really made a mess of that cake! :)
