I grew up in a household where birthdays were always a big deal. Naturally, this is something that I have now brought into my own family, planning big, theme-based parties each year for Lilly.
For her first birthday, I had gone with a pink and orange floral theme. I wanted something that was cute and fun, just like my little lady. As with most 1st birthdays, it was mainly just friends and family that attended, but we still had one heck of a full house. It was a great way to celebrate her first year.
You could definitely say that I went a little all out for the party. We had decorations all over the deck and back yard, games for the bigger kids and jammed packed goodie bags. We even went out and bought a pool…then subsequently drained our well and blew our pump. Good times. But it was all worth if for the incredible day of memories.
With our little man, Cole, due in just a few weeks, I already have visions of planning a little boy’s first birthday

As an added bit of celebration, I am giving away one $50 Sears gift card to one lucky reader! You could use this gift card to go on a shopping spree for your little ones…or maybe just for yourself
