I can’t believe Tazzy is going to be one-year old next month. It’s nuts! People told me that time flies but I had no idea it would go by this fast. At first, I was thinking I wouldn’t have a big party since it’s probably that Tazzy wouldn’t remember but then I thought about it and realized that I want this occasion as a memory. I want to be able to look back at photos and see her at her very first birthday party.
And then Josh and I realized that this party is more for us than for her. We decided to have a Sunday brunch and invite our closest friends and family to help celebrate Tazzy’s birthday and the fact that we’ve survived and even thrived this first year as parents. Woo hoo, we made it!
We’ll have little goodie bags for Tazzy’s little friends, a piñata (that we will not break…but since I can remember, I always had one at all of my birthday parties as a little girl) and of course cake. Thinking of making an all-natural wholesome cake – anyone have any recipes??
Aside from that we’ll have food and drinks for the adults. I am looking forward to raising a glass to this last year. It’s been amazing and every day gets better and better.
And a side note regarding invitations. I went back and fourth on whether to mail paper invites, send an email or use Evite. Finally, I decided to use Paperless Post, where you can design and send a virtual invite. More on my experience in a separate post. I digressed.
Anyway, I’m super excited about this first birthday party. Now, I want to hear about your child’s first birthday. Did you do anything? If so, what? And did you feel like the party was really all for them or more for you?
