My little girl turned one this past Saturday. As she played with the pink pinata hanging by a rope, I laughed while fighting back tears, wondering what happened to the twelve months that, apparently, flew by.
I tried not to plan anything too big so that I could absorb myself into the smallest details of the day: the clouds, the moist grass, my baby’s curls as she wiggled in the grass, family & friends smiling as they sang happy birthday to Teya. It worked! Everything was beautiful and I was able to enjoy every second.
I took lots of pictures that i’m excited to share via my blog. The vendors I partnered with were amazing, as usual, and i’ll share all the details this weekend.
Tables, chairs & umbrellas provided by Mission Viejo Rentals. I highly recommend MVR and have used them in the past with great results and pricing each time.
The fantastic cake made by Black Forest Bakery! I brought in various clippings as samples for what I was looking for and it was no easy task! I wanted bits & pieces of each picture to create my final product and they did exactly that – the cake was so tasty and beautiful. We opted for chocolate with chocolate filling so that baby could get as messy as possible for picture-taking opportunities!
Drink station made up of Pink & Purple beverages, (of course!). I bought all of the drinks at BevMo. Notice, below, my Trader Vic’s mai-tai mix for the grown-ups. We need to celebrate too! For some very strange camera’s fault reason, the colors of the table coverings came out blue, but they were purple & pink. That’s what I get, opting for portable convenience instead of quality!
And finally, my baby girl right after she got the chance to dig into her yummy, first, chocolate cake! Hat & “I’m one” pin from Party City.
