When did this happen?! I can't believe how quickly one year can go by. We have been so blessed by this sweet little girl, and throwing her birthday celebration was a lot of fun!
We went with a woodland theme, because she loves little animals, and they are just so cute, like our little girl. I drew the artwork for the invitation and for the memory/matching game I made for her and her cousins. I also made little woodland stuffed animals out of the scraps from a quilt I made her, as her birthday present. Aren't they so cute?
Finally the day of her party arrived, I had so much fun making decorations and putting them up!
I made two cakes, a little one for her to smash and eat, and a large one for all of us to share. Her two-year-old cousin decided that the little cake was for Georgia, and the big one was for her, because she is a big kid, so cute! They were delicious, fluffy white cake with a brownie bottom, and cream cheese icing, made from a recipe I found here.
I want to say a huge thank-you to all of our family who could make it to her party, I know she felt so loved, and you all spoiled her far too much! She is very much enjoying all of the new toys she has to play with.
Georgia was so good the entire time, smiling and having fun, even though we went way over nap time. She patiently and happily sat and helped open all her beautiful gifts from her generous family, and then had so much fun eating her little cake. She was so cute and dainty with it at first, pinching off the smallest bits of icing with her hand and eating it, but finally she dug right in.
Thanks again to everyone who came, and for making her feel so loved. And photo credits, of course, go to Guenard Photography (although I did actually sneak into a few shots this time!).
