30th birthday party

Happy birthday to my sister. She turned 30 yesterday. We celebrated the big birthday on Friday night. I was in charge of the invitations and cake and my mom took care of the rest. I do not have even one photo from the evening since I used my sister's camera at the party. I think I mentioned that my camera lens broke a couple weeks ago and was not able to be repaired- boo! I've replaced it now though. I'm hoping she'll email me some photos so I can share them with you (hint, hint). The party was so much fun. We enjoyed time with friends, wine tastings, dinner and cake under the stars and lanterns. Cheers to the next 30 years Sis!

I made the bunting and purchased the lovely cake topper from here

georgia's first birthday: bloom and grow party

Georgia's first birthday party was a success! We all had a great time - especially Georgia. Many of our closest family and friends traveled for the big occasion. Paul and I are so thankful for our family and friends. They all were our support system through our first year of parenthood. We love you all very much and couldn't have made it through Georgia's first year without you. 

On to the party details now:
 I decided to go with a 'bloom and grow' party theme. Here are the invitations (along with our blurred address and contact info:).

The plan was to host the party outside, but the weather was a little 'iffy' so we decided to set everything up indoors. Here's how we greeted our guests.


The birthday girl!

Georgia's cupcake and cake table. 

Love my baby girl.

The spread.

A little unsure what to do with the cupcake!

Flower prop pictures.

Garden tools and a book for Georgia's girlfriends.

Flower seed packets for Georgia's grown-up friends. 

Oh baby girl, we cannot believe you are 1 years old! What a special birthday party it was. We love you so much!

happy birthday georgia!

It is so hard to believe that one year ago today you were born, Georgia. You have brought so much joy to our hearts and lives and we look forward to the many more adventures we have ahead of us. 

Squeezy, squeezy (aka- hug from mom and dad at the same time:)

We love you more than you'll ever know,

dada and mama

Party pictures coming tomorrow...
