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.

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.

  • Because six buns are better than one and Evelyn actually sat for me to put the littlest braids in to match us. #mybraidsfailed #butmybunslookfine 😉 #momandminihair
  • Officially ready for summer, who’s with me?!
We’ve been playing around with drink recipes in the kitchen and these have me craving a hot summer day!
•
Sophie is always asking me to have sips of my @SodaStreamCanada sparkling water
whenever I make some at home. So as you can tell (did you swipe over?) she was thrilled to
make the sparkling water herself and create these drinks with me. Easy recipe on the blog now,

  • ⭐️ G I V E A W A Y ⭐️ The girls wear their @adelisaandco boots on the daily around here.

In celebration of their newly launched styles we have teamed up to give away one pair of shoes ($45 shop credit) and early access to shop on their restock date April 19th. Their shoes always sell out quickly, so this gives you the chance to pick out the size and style that you are hoping for!!⠀
Here’s what to do:⠀
1️⃣ F O L L O W @creativewifeandjoyfulworker and @adelisaandco⠀
2️⃣ L I K E this photo + three others on my feed⠀
3️⃣ C O M M E N T below your favourite sunny destination⠀
4️⃣ T A G your friends below for extra entries. 1 friend tagged per comment = 1 extra entry⠀

  • A few weeks ago I sent off an email to @locomotiveclothing to see if they had thought about adding some Mom shirts to their collection. We got to talking, met for coffee and the ideas were running. One of the most important things was that we wanted this shirt to give back to others, both moms and kids. Today [ at 9AM PST] @locomotiveclothing is launching their Mom + Kid tees and $5 from each sale will be donated to support @bcwomens Oak Tree Clinic. Head over to @locomotiveclothing to see more of the gorgeous design by @jess.delves and photos by @juliechristinephotography
  • I’ve been waiting for some floral wallpaper to arrive so I can hang this beauty from @timberandgray up in the girls bedroom. The wallpaper arrived at the end of this week, so I’ve got some work to do! If you have any tips for applying, please share below!
