2016 Edit: Well, I can’t believe that a year has flown by already. It is INSANE to me that it’s already time for her second birthday. We’re not going big and crazy this year (although I am working out a pretty awesome cake in my mind for her). I wanted to re-share her party from last year though, incase there are any other Valentine’s Babies out there and you could use a little inspiration. I’m not going to lie – this was absolutely a party for myself, to make our house as girly and pretty as possible, even if it was just for one day. Hope you love it just as much as we did!
On Valentines Day our baby girl turned one. We had the party a week later (because really, how many people want their Valentines Day ruined by an infants birthday party), and I couldn’t be happier with how everything turned out! I figured that this was the first, and probably only, year that I could do exactly what I wanted for her, before she becomes obsessed with a character or asks for a theme. I also thought it good to get the whole Valentines theme out of the way right off the bat. Plus, it was fun to keep a running tally of all the cuteness on Instagram!
I’m not really a jarring red and white kind of girl though. If I could snap my fingers and have my entire house transformed, it would be a combination of distressed wood, orange and yellow roses, soft pinks. and hits of aqua. So I basically forced my daughter to live my dream for a day, and it was beautiful!
I’m just going to kind of show off the party today. I’ll have recipes up for some of the food later on in the coming weeks. Giant rolls of craft wrapping paper were my best friend for the decor. I’ll add as much quick little how-to as I can as well….
