We are doing Ailey's party that weekend too! I can't believe it's here already. yikes:)

It's going to be pretty small because only grandma and grandma are driving the 8 1/2 hours hehe I think it's 6 adults 6 kids.

smash cake is a must. tons of balloons , other than that I don't think any of these poor munchkins has a clue. my only advice is stick to nap times! Piper's 1st party somehow got scheduled right at her nap time so we had one very very unhappy birthday girl an hour in.

have tons of fun and post lots of pics after! :)

have you picked a theme? we're doing bubble guppies. Ailey LOVES them and nick jr has a ton of free decorations and invites and things to print for all their shows (who knew?!)

Hi Hope!

Planning a first birthday party is so much fun! We've always kept it relatively quiet with just close friends and family members attending. A smash cake is a must for the first birthday and be sure to take tons and tons of pictures!
