{Planning} Emily's 1st Birthday Party

Emily is going to be ONE YEAR OLD next month! I still can't believe it. But, slowly, while I am thinking about her birthday party details, it is sinking in that my baby girl is not *really* a *baby* for much longer.

(She is also getting two more teeth on the top now which is making it that much more obvious.)

As I have been planning things for Emily's birthday party next month, Pinterest has been an amazing help in giving me ideas for things I want to do and how to do them.

I will incorporate some polka dots but the main idea is lavender, yellow, and pink in pastels. I want it to be girly, light, and airy- does that make sense? 

This picture with the setup of the table is always in my mind.
I bought a light yellow table clothe but I want to somehow make levels like this.
I will also have vases of flowers from my mom and her garden.

I will just let the pictures speak for themselves!

Let me know if you have any ideas :)

I LOVE Pinterest for this reason!! You can literally picture what you're wanting! LOVING the theme you've got going and I can't wait to see pictures of her party!

Such cute ideas! I decided to avoid going too girly for Chloe's birthday simply because there will probably be more little boys there than girls, so I went more gender neutral. When she's a bit older I will have the girliest party I can manage.

I love going to Pinterest for ideas. Granted, I never end up doing any of the projects cause I suck at them but whatever. I'm sure whatever you end up going with is going to look fantastic. That table is especially gorgeous!
