Happy Birthday Baby! A 1st Birthday in Photographs

Over at Disney Baby I’m finally sharing details of Lola’s first birthday celebration (read about it here)! I decided I’d take a moment and share some of them here too. Be warned, this post is photo heavy (The first few photos are from a photo session that took place before the party.)!

Feeling especially grateful for all the love showered upon my baby on this day. Even more grateful that these are people that will continue to love her as she continues to grow.

A very special thank you for the lovely ladies behind Moulage Collection, Swallows Return and Little Blue Olive. Each of them were so wonderful to work with and ensured that everything arrived in time for the festivities. They were so kind, gracious and made purchasing from their shops something I was especially happy to do and wouldn’t hesitate to do again. Their items were crafted beautifully and the perfect addition to the party! I am very grateful to each of them :).

  1. Love the cutie pie in the pictures. She is simply adorable. Seems to enjoy her first verjaardagsfeestje (birthday party) with her whole heart on all the things around her. Lola, wish you a happy birthday baby and for all the years to come. The cake is too tempting to resist. A beautiful arrangement done for the tiny tot! Great efforts by both of you and gifting Lola a memorable birthday!
