Sneak Peek: Sadie’s 1st Birthday

It’s going to be a big day here tomorrow…  my sweet little Sadie is turning one next week!  I can hardly believe she is almost a year old.  This year has just flown by at whirlwind speed!   I almost didn’t  plan a party (gasp!) due to everything we have going on right now.  We’re moving to Miami in two weeks!!  But I just couldn’t imagine letting her first birthday go by without a little celebration.

Today will be a crazy day full of last minute preparations and baking.  On deck is a smash cake for the birthday girl, cinnamon swirl cupcakes, caramel apples and some sort of apple cake.  So if you’ll please excuse my slow response to comments and emails this week, I’d like to share a little sneak peek of Sadie’s big day…

Sadie's Birthday Preview

Like always, I had more ideas than time when it came to Sadie’s party.  So I enlisted the help of some very talented ladies, friends new and old, to help me.  They might tell you I went a little crazy with the emails, photos and physical design boards…. but it was so worth it!  Their creations have been arriving all week and I am in awe!  I cannot wait to show you everything!  Inspired by Sadie’s favorite stuffed animal (a gift from her Aunt Ashley), this party is going to be soft, furry and oh-so-sweet!

While I look forward to spending time with my family this weekend, I hope you have an exciting weekend planned too!  See you back here next week!

Happy Friday everyone!

    Despite the rush, I can see you are heading towards a big and wonderful celebration. At least, I can see from the creative ivory embossment of her name in the picture shown.
