Adalyn's First Birthday Party

Adalyn's first birthday party went amazing! We had about 30 family members over to celebrate her birthday. It was a beautiful day and we had the party at our home.

Of course, Adalyn needed a beautiful princess dress for her party and we were sent this beautiful one from Princess Bowtique which came with the headband as well. It went with the colors for her party which were cream, gold and pink. I just loved the classy look of these colors so much. Adalyn wore the french ivory and pink baby girl tutu dress. The dress was absolutely perfect and I love the pictures of her in it so much!

I was sent the pink/gold first birthday kit from the Mod Party Etsy shop. I loved the decor but the tassel garland was a huge pain and I didn't like that. The rest of the decor was great though!

Cake Smash!
The cake smash went amazing. Adalyn loved the cake, rubbed it all over her body (haha!) and ate a ton of cake. It was perfect
