Cady’s First Birthday Party

Here it is finally. The long overdue post of Cady’s much anticipated first birthday. There were too many beautiful photos to post them all, but here are some of the details of the party itself.

I had started thinking about Cady’s August birthday party in January when she was about 5 months old. The birthday cake, smash cake, decorations, gift bags, and party favor bows were all handmade at home with love by Mommy with the help of other family members who were key to making sure everything went smoothly for the big day. Family from West Virginia and California even few in for a few days to celebrate the momentous occasion. There were three different outfits (luckily we were prepared for the messes that would inevitably occur), lots of trips to Michael’s Arts and Crafts, and many party blogs browsed for pink first birthday party ideas.
