Comments Off on Floral Themed First Birthday Party | Happy Birthday Evelyn!

What a year we had. I had no idea what to expect with three kids and how the dynamic would change but I am glad that didn’t stop us. Evelyn came into this world two days before her due date (read about my birthday story here) and she has really lived up to her middle name, Joy. Our first year together has truly flown by and I can not believe that we’ve already celebrated her first birthday. Since we were in the process of moving I wanted to style a simpler party. For me that was a floral themed party.

Why do I think this party is considered simple. As I am sure a handful of you are looking at it like, um what that’s not simple? Here’s the thing, any party with desserts and large amounts of florals is going to look amazing. Besides the Simple Balloon Garland backdrop that is really all I did. Floral + Yummy Treats = Easy Party.

So let’s dive in shall we.

Sophie couldn’t resist a taste and her friends weren’t far away either. More photos from her cake smash here.

My grandma wore one of the party hats for almost the entire party. We couldn’t resist getting a photo of the oldest and the youngest (not quite the youngest at the party).

Thanks to my husband for letting me go “all out” for another birthday party. It is such a joy for me even though Evelyn isn’t going to remember the details, I really enjoy putting it together. It’s just one way that I can be creative and I think you can tell by my face that I am thrilled. The photo below this one is of my mom, my girls and my grandma. The girls of the family.

  • "Big Grandpa died Mom and we need to go get him back." Sophie said as she pulled at my arm from my bed. I lay down not feeling well trying to explain to Sophie about heaven and she said, "Mom, I don't want my parents to die, get better mommy." Oh my heart.

This weekend, we lost my grandfather. He had been sick for a little while, though I really did think his stubborn character would pull him through for more days here on earth. He's resting now, in heaven with our Heavenly Father. There is so much peace in that, though it is never easy to say goodbye, I am especially thankful for God's love and his sacrifice.
•
For anyone else mourning a loss right now I'm praying and sending love to you tonight. Especially those with little ones who we want to be honest with, that we have the words to let them understand in the most suitable way.

  • For a minute I thought Ezra was only a head shorter then me. We still have time people, notice the feet on tip toes in his shoes... not quite there yet. (Soooo... it's been noted that I'm wearing heels and he really IS THAT TALL NEXT TO ME!)
  • Weekend started early with a little trip to the island with my sister @roxannredekop. The weirdest part about being away from the kids is always bedtime. We are tucking into bed early tonight and I can't help but feel weird knowing that the wee ones won't be around in the morning.
  • The whole family gathered for a taste around my latest @DQcanada creation. Sophie kept asking if it was for Evelyn's birthday, which I think it would have been perfect for since I custom designed the top border with florals.⠀
•⠀
So here's how I made it. I went into dqcakes.com and found this heart shaped cake. It originally had balloons and "Happy Birthday" on the top with a plain white border around the edge. In the personalization option I simply asked for no words or decor on the top and a floral border in purple around the outside top border. Voila! You can do it to! Head to the link in my profile and play around with the different styles and options available on DQcakes.com⠀
