Birthday Party-Part 1

This past Saturday we had Gianna's first birthday party here at the house. Although her actual birthday isn't until July 15th we had to celebrate it early since the hubs leaves this weekend for the next five months.

Practically since the day Gianna was born I had been planning this party. I knew from day one that the theme would be cupcakes. While I am not a sweet's eater from day one of my pregnancy with Gianna I craved sweets. Especially cupcakes. They were all I wanted. Hence the theme of the party. When Gianna turned 6 months I started buying and making decorations for the big day. I don't know what I would have done without pinterest! So for part one of the birthday post I thought I'd share the invites and decorations.

A word about rsvping. No one does it! I sent out the invites about a month in advance and we had about 20 people rsvp the day before the party. Crazy and annoying! And of course we had people that rsvp'd late and then never showed up which really irritated me since the day of we were running around picking up more food to account for the 20 last minute guests. Oh well
