Ahhh finally getting around to posting some pictures from the party! We just got back from a short trip to Vegas and it’s 2:15 and I am finally getting caught up on emails and photo editing! Ayiyi! Trips are so great until you get home and realize how much you have to get caught up on. Hence the 3:00 bedtime I’m headed for tonight. I’d like to think those getaways are still worth the work jam though! Anyway, these are some of my favorite pics from Rylee’s birthday party last week. Thank you Stone Crandall for hijacking my camera and helping me document this day! You can see the rest of the photos on my facebook page.
We had so much fun celebrating Rylee’s first birthday with friends and family! I was pleasantly surprised that almost all the little ones found a headband that fit (there was a lot of measurement guessing going on the days prior!) It was pretty cute to see all of them running around in their feathers and enjoying the tent/teepees Sam built. We found this simple tutorial by Rubyellen of the blog Cakies, and I created some hand painted tent covers that I’ll show you how to make in the next post. For the cupcake toppers, all the credit goes to Ez of Creature Comforts…..that gal is always inspiring me! I had remembered this tutorial from a long time ago and knew the arrow cupcake toppers would fit perfect with my theme. We also had a mini 4″ cake with a DIY paper feather topper…but I am saving that one for another post too! Sorry for the onslaught of party posts to come, but I did too much not to share! I’m kind of sad it’s all over. But so glad I have so many memories from Ry’s big day.
Speaking of big day. Today, I can officially say that Rylee is “walking”. No more one, two steps…..more like 10, 11, 12. Which is terrifying and exciting all at the same time! I thought this day would come months ago, but I guess she was waiting until one to really show off. I caught her on camera earlier today.
