Pace’s First Birthday

This past May we celebrated our baby girl, Pace’s first birthday with a southwestern themed party! We invited close friends and family to join us for an afternoon of Tacos and cupcakes! As guests arrived they placed their gifts inside a floral and ribbon accented tee pee that took the place of a traditional gift table.



Outside, a craft table was set up for the kids to personalize their own planters and to choose their favorite cactus to plant and take home with them as a party favor.




A gold high chair accented with beautiful blooms designed by the ladies of Liz Stewart Floral Design may just have been my favorite decor detail of the day and the perfect place for baby girl to have her very first taste of sugar.



The dessert table was set with our favorite treats from local bakeries. AlleyCakes created succulent cupcakes and the sweetest smash cake there ever was. Cactus sugar cookies were the perfect touch from Cinotti’s Bakery. Gnarled vines, fresh cut succulents and lose blooms accented the tasty desserts. Above the dessert table hung a faux bison head with a floral crown. The backdrop for our bison was the perfect cactus wall paper found from ThinkNoirWallpaper’s etsys shop!


Our family bulletin board displayed some of our favorite pictures of Pace through out our first year with her.


It was such a sweet afternoon surrounded by friends and family celebrating our girl and what feels like the fastest year of our lives!
