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.

  • Hello! I wanted to welcome all the new faces around here as it’s been a while since I did any sort of introduction. So here is a little about how I started and a goal of mine, please do share a little about you, and a goal too!⠀
•⠀
I started this blog over four years ago while on mat leave with Sophie. I’d never met anyone who blogger, didn’t know a thing about building a website but had a passion for social media and a need for connection.⠀
•⠀
Six months later I went to school for graphic design and graduated from BCIT and Emily Carr in Vancouver a year later. It was a crazy year doing school and keeping this blog afloat — but I’m so glad I did it!⠀
•⠀
This space has grown into such a beautiful thing for me. A place to feel inspired, creative, encouraged and connected to so many others in the same and different stages of life.⠀
•⠀
It’s been on my heart (for over a year now) to create a physical place for connection, not just this profile on Instagram. I have no idea what it looks like yet but the passion is growing stronger as I feel I might start having more time to develop on this idea. I think I need to start taking some of my own advice, the same line I say to those wanting to start a blog but don’t know how. Just start, you’ll figure it out as you go.⠀

  • Has anyone else started to get that back to school panic yet? Like how the heck is it two weeks away?? I was talking to a friend yesterday about both our kids going into kinds this year and how strange of a stage it is. We’ve spent 5 years raising these little humans of ours and then off they go to spend most of their day learning. I’m super excited for Sophie because I know she’s going to love it, but that weird mom panic is starting to set in 😅 also! Ezra is going into Grade 4 😶 when did that happen?! He thinks he is going into grad 5 because he was in a 3/4 split last year and already knows everything that Grade 4’s would learn 🤷🏼‍♀️ he’s got a good argument but I keep telling him I’m pretty sure he’s going into grade 4 still, poor guy.

On a whole other note... Evelyn has started to master this whole potty training thing and I bought he some underwear cause we are fully committing (minus bedtimes) things really do happen all at once when it comes to parenting hey.. we’ve got all the feels happening today 😅😢😳😍😊🤔 ps: @peoplefootwear my kids want to thank you for keeping their feet stylish and comfortable this summer 😘 #gifted #peoplefootwear
