I love planning parties for the girls, but this party was a little bit tricky planning since we have been so preoccupied with unpacking from our move. However, it was still a success and I think we've all consumed enough cookies to last us a while.
I took some pictures of Lucy to send to her grandparents and then had her cute birthday invitations personalized from this Etsy shop.
My mom, being the fabulous scrapbooking queen that she is, took the invite and made this adorable page! We displayed it for guests to see as they walked in.
I took some old frappuccino bottles that a friend collected for me and repurposed them to use as cute little milk bottles!
Norah just kind of hovered around the table until we told her it was okay to have a cookie.
We gave everyone strict orders to not give her any cookies unless they cleared it with us because it always ends up in a sleepless night with lots and lots of throw up. It was a success! No throw up this time:))
I saw this cookie layer cake and wanted to try it. I was pretty proud of how it turned out (and tasted!) but it still didn't look nearly as perfect as the one in the tutorial. Sigh. I'm blaming it on the fact that she had a cute cake stand! ;)
There was a ton of leftover layer cake (mostly because I was too lazy to cut slices for everyone. ha!) but if I'm working out during the week then it doesn't really matter if I eat the rest of it by myself, right? ;))
I made a little mini cookie cake for Lucy and she dug right in with no reservations.
Lucy was such a sweet birthday girl the whole time and we took every opportunity to her off to everyone. We love those yummy cheeks of hers.
It was so fun having friends and family come celebrate our sweet girl with us. Thank you to everyone who made it! I sure love this little family of mine!
