Party Planning

I can't believe I am saying this, but it is time to start planning my daughters' first birthday party. In two short months (and two days) they will be turning ONE. Where has the time gone? It seems like just yesterday I was holding them in the NICU praying that they would get healthy and come home with us. Now they are on the move, squealing all the time, getting into everything, hugging and becoming little people.

I want their first birthday to be special, even if they don't remember it. I want to celebrate them because they are my everything.

I am going with a more traditional theme of Winter Onederland. Yes I know a lot of people have done it, but it is just so cute. Plus my girls were born right in the heart of Winter and right between Christmas and New Year's.

I have been on Etsy all morning getting ideas of things I can do myself and things I will leave to the pros. Like their outfits. There is no way I am trying to make those. But I can make gift bags, signs and banners.

I have been having so much fun picking things out. And I am starting now so I can spread the cost over two months rather than all at once. Plus we have Christmas and Birthday gifts to start buying.

Here is my inspiration board for the girls' first birthday:

As for gifts, we have a few things in mind, but are open to suggestions. So please send them my way.

Hope you all have a good Tuesday. I need to get back to party planning.


  1. Okay, first hoe is it possible to start thinking about first birthdays? Second, I've had this theme in my secret Pinterest boards since Emmy was 4 months old! Great minds!!! I'm so excited for her first birthday and can't wait to see what you do

    1. I know, right? I had a secret Pinterest board too, but now I have to make those become a reality. When is Emmy's birthday?
