A Garden Party | Annalee's First Birthday

We had the perfect little garden party celebration for our sweet Annalee last Saturday. The forecast was calling for a total wash-out, so we were ecstatic to actually see some sun! 

We kept the party simple, with just a couple close friends and their kiddos. But we had to cover the basics... invites, smash cake, party favors... and lots of fun party decor! 

 Karli from September Farm designed the most beautiful invitation for us. 

I decorated her seat with flowers from the Dollar Store and cutout letters using my Cricut.  

A few party treats... including mini cupcakes from Sweet Treats Bakery.

Of course, no first birthday is complete without a #1 balloon!

And of course, a monthly collage. My how you have grown little one.

Her lamb cake. A good story on this one coming soon! 

Fun in the ball pit!

...and pony {or zebra} rides! 

So excited to see the sun!

Party Favors!

Thank you to all of our friends for celebrating with us! We are so lucky to be surrounded by so many wonderful peeps. Thank you for helping us raise the sweetest, most curious and happy little girl. She is so full of life - and we owe that to so many of you. We love you sweet girl! 

Happy 1st Birthday!
