happy 1st birthday james! {let’s party}

Our favorite little guy turned one!  What a milestone (for him as well as Momma and Daddy)! Of course, we had to have a little party to celebrate the occasion.  We kept the party small, just family, but it was so awesome that all the James’ (I, II, III, and IV) were able to get together for the first time!   We have so enjoyed this first year- it is pure JOY and LOVE and SWEETNESS with baby James in our lives.

A huge thank you to A Blissful Nest for the banner at the top of this post- it made quite the impression as our guests entered the house!  She has a wonderful collection of super cute paper goodies so go check her out!

And mucho thanks to Pretty Smitten!  About a month before the party, I still had no idea exactly what direction we were going until I saw her adorable train and petals motif.  She took it from there, creating the invitations, cupcake toppers, food labels, “James is ONE” sign and the banner at the top of the stairs.  She even included personalized thank you notes and stickers.  You rock!

  18. god, smash cake pics are the best.

    welcome to toddlerhood, mr. james.

    please don't take any notes from moose or monkey, because they often set bad examples of boys gone wild.

    happy first.

    and the first is the sweetest.
