It started out as being a "Garden Party" theme and then evolved into Garden Party/Shabby Chic/Sugar and Spice and everything nice.....you get the idea. I couldn't stop!
I chose the invites from tinyprints.com You can see them here: http://www.tinyprints.com/product/15386/birthday_party_invitations_hummingbird_haven.html
And I made a floral head wreath for her to wear (which I will have a tutorial for soon)
Then we had a mini photo shoot and soon we got the perfect picture. Luckily babies are super smilely at this age so it wasn't hard to find some good ones!
|The banner back there with her name on it was inspired by Pinterest|
|Gorgeous flowers that I got from Whole Foods (In my opinion, the best place to get flowers for a party)|
|Our family Happy Birthday sign, made by me a few years ago. We hang it for every birthday. I had no idea when I was making it how much I would love it.|
|The food table: We had tea sandwiches, garden party salad, almonds and mini caprese bites. Yum!|
|Strawberry Vanilla Bean Cupcakes. I am very picky about my cupcakes, so I always make them myself.|
|Decorated mason jars for the beverages (Pinterest, where else?) and my helpful sister in the background. Oh yeah and that table cloth is actually an old sheet I had. Worked perfect.|
|I tied little "Shabby Chic" scraps of fabric onto the champagne glasses for some extra flare|
|Little herbs for the party favors. Sage, Thyme and Rosemary.|
|I painted some mandarin cans with chalkboard paint and then wrote on them, "Thanks a bunch for celebrating!"|
|Party entrance. I slaved away on that silly wreath and now I have no idea what to do with it!|
|Got this idea from another blogger who did the same wreath for her daughter's 1st birthday. I will have to find her so I can credit her|

Whew! And that's the end of my very first post. I hope it was enjoyable. I welcome any suggestions or ideas.
