Party Planning

Sadie's birthday party is April 15th (the Sunday before her actual Birthday). I think I'm more excited about this than I should be. I'm a first time mom so I guess it's cool. I've been planning this sha-bang for awhile now. When she was tiny she used to light up when Abby Cadabby came on Sesame Street. She's kind of gotten over it. She still likes it but it doesn't hold her interest as much. So my original plan was to have an Abby Cadabby party. I thought about this a lot (seriously, way more than a person should) and I decided that since it's her FIRST birthday it should be focused on her turning ONE and not on some silly character. Right?

Off to Pinterest I went to find some inspiration. I fell in love with the "Pink Lemonade" theme of light pinks and yellows (without the lemonade). It's so sweet, simple and sort of vintage looking and kind of theme-less. Perfect. Here are some of my inspiration pics of pink/yellow parties:

Loving this with the little bit of blue and orange too!
See how Sweet this is?! Now for the cake. We're not doing a sheet cake. Sorry sheet cake lovers but no one ever eats them and your left with a whole cake and I'm the only one who would eat it and I do NOT need to eat a whole cake (I think this is a run on sentence?). Trying to lose the last 15 lbs. of pregnancy fat! We've I Have decided on cupcakes. They seem to go better than cake for whatever reason... We are doing chocolate, white and strawberry. Josh's aunt is making them so that makes them all the more special. This is just a picture of cupcakes I found that I thought were gorgeous!:

I'm debating on a smoosh cake:

On to Decorations. I'm going to decorate her high chair. Here are a few options:
Use table cloths as decor instead of on the tables. My mom's taking care of the balloons:

Baby time line. Newborn to one year:

This is so cool! But I don't know if I'll end up making one:
We're doing a time capsule (I even found the same box at Target). Everyone can fill out a little notecard or leave a little momento for Sadie to open when she turns 18 Thanks for the Idea YHL!:
That's all the inspiration I need for a sweet little 1st Birthday Party for my little girl. Where does the time go?! I can't wait to post pictures of the party and see how everything turns out!
