Do you have a date picked out: I'm thinking 12/7 Will it be at your house or a venue: At our house Do you have a theme: Owls. That's been our theme with her nursery, baby shower, so I figured might as well end the first year with owls as well. Colors: pink and gold Do you have a special outfit for LO: I have seen so many cute ones, but haven't decided yet. I did order a pink tutu but need a shirt to go with it. Decoration ideas: I'm going to hang a string in the hall and clip each of her monthly growth pics to it with gold glitter clothespins I ordered. I'm going to somehow decorate her highchair but haven't decided on that one yet. I have a lot of other ideas in mind but haven't decided for sure yet. Will you do a smash cake: yes! I'm debating if I want to attempt making it myself or not. Any special birthday traditions you will start: I saw the idea of making a time capsule for her to open on either 16th or 18th birthday. I'm going to do that. I'll make cards with everyone to fill out predictions for her and put some info on what the world was like during her first year of life. Maybe some other things as well, need to do some more searching on this. Anything else: Oh I think I'm also going to put together a slideshow of pictures and maybe some video over her first year and have that run continuously on the TV throughout the party.

I just ordered Sophia's birthday shirt after going back and forth and back and forth and back and forth on what I wanted. We're doing pink and gold, so she'll wear this with a pink tutu and I have a gold glitter with pink bow headband. Cute, right?!
I think I've changed my theme. I was going to do owls, since that's kind of been her thing, but after doing more searching for pink and gold things, I've found a lot of cute ideas for a princess theme. I love this invite!
I have been working on the ideas for Zoey's party. The theme will be Sofia the First. I found really cute outfits at the disney store and may let her wear a Sofia dress. I might make a dress though. Not sure yet. I am doing this idea from pinterest for the first year pictures. Banner. Would be so fun at graduation party, or 18th ... | birthday
Of course i will use a pic for each month instead of each year....

Wow Cassie! I love all your ideas! I really do like the Princess theme. That is kind of what we are doing because it will be Sofia the First. I found this awesome tutu highchair decoration for the party and I am going to make one for Zoey's high chair in white and purple. high chair tutu for a 1st bday!! | birthday It's way too cute!
I would b happy to make one for any of you ladies. For a small fee of course.
