Sweet Bakery (1st) Birthday

My SWEET baby girl turned one this month! I still can't believe it. 

In my defense, she makes it very easy for me to baby her, since she's still the size of a nine-month-old. (She's in the 4th percentile for height).

I've been SO excited to throw her a first birthday party. I've done 3 boy birthdays so far and the idea of getting to throw a baby girl party was almost too much for me.

No, really. The day before her birthday party we threw my son's birthday party at our house, so instead of trying to do 2 parties back to back we decided to have Gracie's party at a bakery. 

Okay, okay, enough talkie. On to the pictures. And just as a fair warning, there are a LOT of pictures.

I wish my apartment looked like this bakery.
The favor boxes!
Lovin' those white cabinets!
This was before all the guests came with their presents

Some of the plates, cups, utensils, etc.

Water! (You have to have it with all the sugar we were consuming)
Look at this amazing birthday cupcake! So pretty! I loved having the birthday party at Maxie B's bakery. We let everyone pick whatever they wanted and we picked up the tab at the was a big hit!
I made a little ribbon embellishment for the high chair, just to add a little pizzazz!
She wasn't too sure about that candle!
The lovely ladies who brought THEIR lovely ladies to the party! (Look at Gracie's embarrassing)
That day was so crazy but so fun! I ran so many errands in the morning that I didn't have time to do my hair! Ah! I was also sooo tired, hence the bags under the eyes. But it was so worth it for that little sweet face.
