Birthday Preview

Well, the birthday plans are well under way. They actually have been for ummm.......12 months. Since Cilla was itty bitty (or as itty bitty as ten pound baby can be) I started thinking about and dreaming about her first birthday party! For those of you that know me, you know that I love to plan a party! I love each and every detail that makes a party special and unique. But with that said, I am trying to keep it simple and I am trying not to go over board (and since when was I known for not going overboard!?!?!) After all, she is turning ONE, not 13! Anyway, here is a little sneak peek at our little bit's first birthday party......

It only seemed logical to go with the giraffe theme. Her favorite thing in this world is her stuffed giraffe (thanks Heather, Todd, and Reese)! I thought and thought about how to make it "girly", but too "girly" since most of her friends are little boys. Viola, a little wild animal themed party for our little wild one with a little bit of little girl flare!
I will share more pics after her party this Saturday. One week from today, we will be celebrating Cilla's first birthday. I can hardly believe it!!!!

I love the pink and brown giraffe print! Cassidy's "lovie" is a giraffe too! We named her Peggy - PG...for pink giraffe. We're creative like that.

I hope your party is wonderful. Cassidy's is this Saturday and I can't WAIT. The year has flown by!
