First of all, I want to thank everyone who left me a comment on my first post about Abbie’s party – I was really having a hard time with everything, and you all helped so much. Now, I’d like to recap the party as it happened – we made the best of it we could, and I know you all want to see Abbie covered in cake right?
Decor and Food:
All the coordinates for the party were designed by Becca Lee Paperie to match our invitations, and I LOVED how they turned out. She was great to work with – responsive and really fast. Her shop is running a holiday special right now too – 20% off an entire order with the code HOLIDAY20 until 12/31/13. She has all sorts of invitations, party coordinates and holiday items – definitely take a look!
Once people arrived, we ate (mac and cheese, sweet and sour meatballs, a hot cocoa bar, and cheese and crackers) and Abbie played with her friend Justin, then opened her presents!
|Headband didn’t last long on her!|
Abbie’s outfit was one of my favorite things to find – I wanted something celebratory, but not too fussy – my little girl likes to move around! Her pants are Rufflebutts, her shirt is from West Point Stitches, and her headband (that lasted maybe 2 minutes so I could take pictures) is from Ellegantly Ellie.
Abbie adores her stroller from her Aunt Erica and Uncle Doug, and already is learning to take the pieces out of her puzzles – I guess we’ll work on putting them together as she gets older! I love them and was so excited to see her open them. Sometimes mommies like toys just as much as little ones.
After that, we did her cake smash. There were too many funny pictures not to share, so I put them together for you:
At the end of the party, Abbie and Justin played with her stroller some more…until Justin wanted it all to himself. His mom made him hug Abbie to apologize…and she pushed him away. Silly girl.
So, that was Abbie’s party! Not how I expected, but she had fun and that’s what matters right?
