Hadley’s 1st Birthday

So the last monthly update I posted was 9 months, clearly I’m a little behind, because this weekend we celebrated Hadley’s first birthday!

The theme was Under the Sea/Little Mermaid with lots of purple and aqua. I had fun crafting during nap time in the weeks leading up to the party.

We kept the food simple, Jimmy John’s subs, pasta salad, watermelon and goldfish. It was the way to go, nothing that required my attention the day of the party so I could focus on last minute decorating details.

A friend and I baked the cupcakes on Monday and froze them. I dethawed them in the fridge the night before the party and iced them the morning of. My friend Noelle there in the turquoise necklace made the awesome smash cake, thankfully. She volunteered to make it after I asked to borrow a baking pan and since she actually makes wedding cakes I know hers looks a million times better than my attempt would.

I think our big girl had a great time at her party. The kids played out in the yard on the splash pad and water table and in the pool. We had sangria and beer for the adults, so hopefully they didn’t have a bad time either 😉
