The Countdown Begins...

I have to face the music: my baby is turning 1 next month. What comes with that? My baby is having a birthday party next month. Yikes. I guess I really need to get started on that! I started getting things together about a week ago when I hit a snag. The location that we want to have the party at doesn't make reservations until 3 weeks beforehand. WHAT?!? How am I supposed to send out invitations?!? Not like we have the invitations made, but it stresses me out. It's only about four weeks away now, so I'm hoping that they'll just go with it. It's only a park, after all. How strict can they really be? We're planning on taking the invite pictures tonight and getting that started; hopefully, those will be out next week! It's kinda short notice for me, but I have to remind myself that it's only a child's birthday party. Not a wedding. It's going to be a big (well, not really) casual affair, so it's nothing to get stressed over.

I'm not sure that I've mentioned our party plans already, but we're doing a primary colored "theme." I have all the plates, napkins, silverware, etc. in primary colors. I've ordered his birthday shirt in primary colors, and I plan to make all the decorations the same. We're having cupcakes and a smash cake for Jeffrey along with some fun little things for the little ones to play with: a tunnel, balls, etc. I'm hoping that I'm able to pull together what I have in my mind and make it a fun, successful affair. If anything, I just have to make the pictures look good so Jeffrey thinks that it was ;)

Sounds cool :)

My daughter turns 1 tomorrow. I seriously can't believe it. Her party's on Saturday, and I hope it's fun!

SO cute! We are doing a similar theme..orange, red and blue, with a splash of Mickey. I wish we could have it outside, but November in Chicago does not allow that.

Cant wait to hear more about it!
