Prim’s First Birthday Party

img_8357-1We celebrated Prim’s first birthday over the weekend. Since her birthday happened to fall just before our move, we decided to have a combination going-away/birthday party to celebrate the start of Prim’s second year and the start of our new adventure in Amsterdam.img_8464 img_8465img_8466img_8346-1KC’s mom and I worked hard to plan the party, and in the end everything really came together nicely.

img_8467-1It was so nice to have so many close friends and family come over to celebrate Prim, and Prim did fabulously amidst all the attention (this girl loves a party!)

img_8367 img_8356-1Prim wore a grey Baby Gap dress, which was the very first thing we purchased after we found out we were having a girl, and used as a gender-reveal gift during Christmas for my parents. Her pink sweater was my mom’s when she was a baby (and look how sweetly Prim coordinated with her Nonna on her special day!)img_8354-1I made Prim a little no-sugar smash cake (recipe coming up tomorrow!), which came together surprisingly well. I was a little doubtful that it would work out the way I intended, but actually ended up being adorable and perfect.

img_8350-1img_8473-1This was the cake we served to guests — I’ll be posting about this beauty later in the week as well. (Doesn’t it look fancy? It was $19!)

img_8365I can’t believe this sweet little peanut is one already, but what a great way to ring in the end of her first year.

Thank you to everyone who took the time to come out and share the day with us. It was so special having you all there, and we sure are lucky to have such wonderful people in our lives.
