Happy New Year friends! I hope you are all having a wonderful 2019 so far! I am kicking off the New Year with a post all about Finley’s first birthday!
I feel like I just planned my wedding all over again. All joking aside, I had so much fun planning her party. I have never used so much glitter, glue, and scissors so much in one month. Her invites turned out better than I could have ever imagined. I ordered them off Etsy, printed them at FedEx, and cut them myself.
We had the party at my Aunt Jens house (we have many parties here). We set up the night before because I wanted to make sure that I did not forget anything. So by setting up early, I could make a list of things I still needed to bring.
(We left the cake on the silver base because we were afraid to take it off)
Hot Cocoa Bar and Waffle Bar
We used the Belgian waffles from Eggo and they are the best waffles I have ever had. They were a hit at the party, as well!
Smash Cake and Presents
She cried the whole time we sang Happy Birthday and refused to eat the cake. Thank goodness, we did a smash cake photo shoot previously!
