from the beginning, my purpose for the party was to have a thank-you-so-much-we-couldn't-have-survived-without-you-celebration for our friends and family. yes, we love EG and birthdays, but the only reason she made it to her first birthday was because we have such a fantastic support system.
so here is the first installment of our baby girl's celebration! :)
first off, my favorite part....the invitation!
i know most people are probably ok with a text or email invitations, but paper is my love language. i love printed photos, and handwritten notes, and snail mail, and most of all, invitations!
i filled the house with flowers and pictures, and more flowers and more pictures.
the downside to having a million photos of baby girl is that i have a million favorites of baby girl. when it came time to picking a few of my favorites, i printed a hundred. i found a pack of brightly colored yardstick and matted them the best i could. pretty sure they will be hanging on the walls of my dining room until her high school graduation. #babyshrine
