When I was 7 months pregnant, a woman at Kinko's who was there with her 14-month-old said to me, "You better start planning your baby's first birthday party now, you'll be amazed at how quickly it'll be here!" In my pregnant bliss, I laughed and said, "Oh, I've got plenty of time!" She was right. Willow's birthday celebration came and went, and it has now been about a week since my little baby turned one.
So here is a little glimpse of that big day, Willow's Enchanted Woodland Birthday...aka, we threw a party near the woods and strung some lights! It was perfect for our girl, surrounded by lots of friends and family with good food and perfect weather.
My mom made a little fairy house for the girls to play with, and they absolutely loved it! I'm pretty sure they were over by that house the entire night! It was super sweet.
I made a pretty fern and butterfly crown for Willow to wear as we sung "Happy Birthday". It did not fly, neither did the singing part. She was absolutely terrified! As soon as she tasted her cake she was happy though, haha! She was even sweet enough to share a few bites with mommy and daddy. What a silly little stinker!
After Willow went to bed, we had a bon fire and s'mores to end the night. It was such a great party! We were incredibly blessed to have our family and friends there with us to celebrate one amazing year of Willow's life. She is one lucky little girl to have so many people love and care for her!
