June’s First Birthday

KN-28.jpg

It’s crazy how humans just keep growing and your once wee babe is now a full on walking, solid food eating, chatty as ever 1 YEAR OLD!!! This crazy, love-filled year went by so quickly, but was also filled with the sweetest intentional pauses. This bday celebration for our Junie girl was one of them.

June turned 1 on January 1st and we planned to celebrate the following weekend. Cue the stomach bug. I went to get each kid up for the morning and behind door #1 was an explosive diarrhea Junie. Behind door #2 was a vomit-caked Linus. So we pushed the festivities out to the next weekend.

Even though the party fairies had granted me a whole extra week to get my crap together for the bday, let’s be honest: I’m not a planner by nature and I don’t bake. So while I would love to bestow all my knowledge of party planning on you, I’ll just show you what I ordered from Amazon and how I taped it to the wall. (everything linked below)

Hopefully some of this sparks ideas for your own child’s bday bash, but if not, enjoy the pictures that my oh-so-talented sister Kelsey Schwenk took (she also baked the most beautiful and delicious cake!).

We ended up buying a folding table and 3M decorative command strips (what I used to hang the pin wheel fans- link here) from Target. The table is no longer available, but I am linking a similar one from Amazon (link here). The command strips on the wall were perfect, and with a little patience, removed without a trace from the wall! I used paper clips (use the small size) to close the paper wheels so I could reuse them down the line, and attached a small string to the paper clip to hang them from the command hooks.

I found the cutie pear basket intending it for June’s room, but I thought it was too sweet not to include it in the party decor. Everything else was found on Amazon:

|1. Pink and Gold Paper Rosettes | 2. Assorted Round Paper Fans | 3. White Paper Straws |4. Gold Happy Birthday Banner | 5. White Table Cloth |6. Clear 12″ Latex Balloons | 7. Birthday Candles |

We are so proud of our girl and can’t believe we get to do life with her. She is quite the little force and truly a source of seemingly endless joy (though she has her moments;). Thank you for celebrating along side us! It really does mean the world.

Much love,

Kathryn
