Sadie’s 1st Birthday PARTY {the details}

Originally, I wasn’t going to throw a 1st birthday party at all for Sadie.  And then I decided to have a very small gathering with cake and maybe a few balloons.  But THEN, the event planner in me turned on, and I knew in my heart that I wasn’t capable of throwing just a casual gathering.  {It’s just not in my DNA –  it has to be all or nothing!}

So with that, came Sadie’s PURPLE 1st birthday party.

the invites:

SJB IS TURNING ONE!-3

 

the decor: {– thanks to Etsy, my new favorite party decorating go-to site — and Catering Works for the beautiful purple flowers –}

All of Sadie’s baby friends at the party were boys, so I found these adorable purple ties to give as favors!
