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 this floral themed birthday party. It is such a joy for me even though Evelyn isn’t going to remember the details, I really enjoy putting together all of the flower birthday party decorations.

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. All the girls of the family.

  • Got to hang with some goats and do a little toga today, with about 400 other people. Have you tried goat yoga? Would you??
  • There’s some new faces around here and it’s been a while since I did a little intro, an about me per se... just a little bit more random.

1. I’ve lived in the same town my whole life. Some may think it’s boring.. I’d call it loyal 😅 .. either way, I know a lot about Abbotsford.
2. If you hold your hand up, palm facing away from you. Pull your thumb back and see how far you can go. Mine can touch the back of my arm, it’s forever been my “talent”.
3. It’s been 5 years (almost to the day) since I started my blog. Growing up I wanted to be a nurse, then went to school to be a police officer, changed gears into business and marketing, graduated with graphic design and its led me to hear. I never had big goals or felt like I was on the right path, but motherhood and this space has brought me all the feels.
4. We’ve been looking for land to grow some flowers of our own. My husband grew up on a flower farm (both the peonies and iris’ pictured are from their farm), property prices can just go ahead and come down a little now.
5. I don’t know if the feeling of being done is for real.. like we feel like we are done having kids but I’d be fibbing if I said it doesn’t come to mind every now and again.

That’s all for now friends. Share a little something about you below — say hi if you are new hear and thanks for reading til the end 🥰🙌🏻
  • Throwing it back to the other day when I went for an evening dip with my beaver @float.eh — it was such a hoot heading to the beach with @juliechristine_xo and gave me a peek into how much fun this summer is going to be.⠀ ⠀
#ad As you can see these aren’t your typical floaties... or should I say @float.eh ’s 😉 They are proudly Canadian, made with quality in mind. You gotta check out their website and see what other fun Canadian designs they have. [ go to float-eh.ca or see my story highlights for the link ] 🇨🇦
  • “When’s the last time you did something for the first time?” Those were words spoken to our group before starting our Tough Mudder course this past weekend in Whistler. Holy moly guys, I was nervous getting started on that course. Let’s just say... nervous shits are real 😅😂🙊 but that’s what makes it so great. Doing something that literally scares the shit outta you. We all pushed through, all 16km and 25 obstacles and it was FUN, hard but really freaking fun. Even though I’m hobbling around today, dang foot cramp (and literally sore all over) I’m so pumped on doing something new, pushing myself and having such an amazing group of friends tackle it together.

PS our men of tough mudder not pictured but SO equally appreciated.
