Go Shorty, It’s Ya Birthday: Part 1

July 11, 2011

So Thursday was Peyton’s 1st Birthday!  I took the day off to spend with her.

We started the day by taking her to breakfast. 

She wore this white halter dress from Burlington for $9 with her Carter’s sandals.

That afternoon we went to the pool.

Saturday was the big Party!  I hate that I don’t have more pictures on my camera.  I was running around trying to be the Hostess with the Mostest.  So until I get pictures from friends this is what I got for right now.

Lets start off with Peyton’s 1st outfit… Yes I said 1st : )

Here is Peyton with my mother wearing a sequin Nicole Miller kids dress from Nordstroms.  Nothing says Party like sequins!!!  I didn’t get a chance to take more pictures of her in the dress : (  So here is the dress by itself.

Check out the shoes!

I got them from Payless!  They were $15.  I tried to find them in my size but they were sold out.

Here is outfit #2!

My little Cupcake decided to have a photo shoot in front of this cupcake!  She is wearing a bubble romper from The Ladybug Custom Kids Clothing.  This shop owner was great, she worked with me to find the right pattern and color combinations by sending me pictures.  Head over and check her out and tell her Baby Shopaholic sent you for free shipping!
Party theme was Butterflies.
Here is the banner and tissue poms I made.

I made this collage of her 12 months on Walmart.com.
Butterfly cupcake toppers I made.

Here is her Butterfly cake.  Pretty cool!

I will share details on making the decorations soon.

I have to thank by BFF Tahnee and her Mother Dorinda for putting these tables together!

We had Pizza, Wings, Pasta Salad, Deviled Eggs, Cheese and Crackers and Fruit cups.  The fruit cups were a big hit!  Surprising!

Again I don’t have pictures but here are some of the highlights!

Peyton was having a blast just running around the house with the kids.

Then we turned on the music and bubble machine. FAIL.  It started off good but we have hard wood floors and next thing I know kids starting hitting the floor like they were slipping on banana peels!  Peyton included.  She got a little shook up.

Time for the smash cake!  FAIL!  Peyton enjoyed everyone singing and applauded when we were done. 

As much as Peyton loves throwing her food on the floor she was not feeling the cake.  She touched it and had this “this is gross” look on her face.  So no good cake smash pictures : (

Overall I think the party went well.  I think the kids had a great time (besides falling).  I know Peyton had a ball.  I want to thank everyone that came out to party with my Lil cupcake!  Mimi from Lip Gloss and Binky came by to party and take pictures!  Can’t wait to see them!

Again, I want to say Happy Birthday to Mister!  I love you and pray you have many more!!!  I feel bad that Peyton and his birthday are a few days apart.  We didn’t forget about you!

    Dear Trina,

    Love the outfits.

    Looks like you had a wonderful day with Peyton on her actual birthday.

    What a great job you did for the party.

    You can always try out a cupcake tonight when you’re all together.

    Otherwise, what’s the problem with her not wanting to get dirty?

    Have a great day.

    Looks like a nice party. I need to get with the planning of my baby’s 2nd bday in october.

    I’m convinced my child just has freakishly small feet for a 20 month old. Your 12 month old wears a size 5 and my 20 month old is barely pushing a size 4 lol. She gets it honestly tho. My feet are small too!
