A Twinkle Twinkle 1st Birthday

Leave a Comment
I've heard it from just about everyone I know with kids, but it's still crazy to me that with Madison here time seems to be flying by exponentially faster than it ever did before. I can't believe my sweet girl will be turning 2 in just a couple of weeks! 

Last year, for the big birthday numero uno I went a little bit crazy attempting to create the perfect pink and gold "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star" themed party. I made some of my favorite appetizers, dozens and dozens of star shaped sugar cookies (using this recipe ...so good!) and plenty of mini-cupcakes. I spent way too much time Pinterest'ing and Etsy'ing trying to gel every last detail, and for a type-A non-party-planner like me, the process was as exhausting as it was fun. Of course,  Madi couldn't have cared less about all those little details I was stressed over -she wouldn't even taste the smash cake- and she would have been just as happy with a few friends or family coming over to play.  

This year we're doing exactly that: inviting a few family members to celebrate her birthday with us over dinner and dessert, and keeping things simple. Still, I thought it would be fun to reminisce with some pictures from last year's party because after all, those awesome memories are really the whole reason (IMO) for making a big deal out of a first birthday in the first place.  :-)

I'm so thankful someone grabbed my camera to take a few shots during the party because once I  snapped pictures of the decorations I got sidetracked with everything else going on. It's so fun looking back at that day. I can't believe it's been a year!
