Morgan's 1st Birthday Bash

Wow - I don't think I have written a post in over a year!  We have obviously been having fun with our bundle of joy!  We celebrated Morgan's 1st Birthday last weekend....we had the party at my brothers house and the weather could not have been more beautiful!  It's hard to believe that my little munchkin is already a year old.  I feel like it was just yesterday that we were anticipating her arrival and now she is learning to walk.  Time flies by and every one tries to warn you, but you just don't get it until it actually happens!(or at least I didn't!)  Here are a few photos from the most fun day ever.  I had so much help from my awesome sister-in-laws...I think they could open their own shop and I am not even kidding!  They are both so talented!  My mom made the cake and my sister-in-law Alison decorated it. My mom also made Morgan's "1"sie....anyways, I could go on but it really was the best day!  Can't wait to see what the next year holds for us!

The invite - done by our friend Adam...he is so talented!

The tissue paper "1" hung on the front door.  This was made by sister-in-law Lindsey.  I loved it!!

The food table turned out great...our theme was owls and the colors were pink and aqua!!!
I made the cake pops and was impressed that they actually turned out cute!

The fab cake made by my sister-in-law Alison......SO cute!!!  The polka dot on the table is a wrapping paper runner....thanks Pinterest!!

I made a month by month banner and my dad had her picture blown up at Wolf camera.  The picture on the mantel only costs about $18!  So inexpensive and such a great added detail.

I found a highchair on Craigslist and sprayed painted it hot pink.  Then we cut out a "1" on the cricut and taped it on there.  I love the way this turned out and it will be passed down to my girlfriends when their little girls turn 1!! 

Owl cookie favors done by a bakery by my house.  I drew up the sketch and gave them a tulip cookie cutter.  Turned out better than I could have done and they were so good!

Cupcake toppers made from the cricut and then the cupcake holders were made from a doile.  We spray painted the doile aqua and then cut the edge of it out....then wrapped them around the cupcake. Love it!

Lindsey made the was SO cute!!!

This is a better picture of the wrapping paper table runner....inexpensive and cute!!

The whole reason for the party!  We had such a fun day and I am sure Morgan will remember every detail! ;-)  At least she has pictures!

Pinterest played a big part in this party - what did we do before Pinterest?!?!

Hopefully it won't be a year before I update again!
