Then, somehow, I ended up creating the girliest birthday party ever!
However, it is not a throw-up Pepto Bismal pink party, which is truly my greatest fear.
I went with peach, blush, white, and gold hues and gave it a fancy twist!
The invites were printed on shimmery champagne-colored paper in peach hues and tied with a glittery gold bow. Added to the invite was a photo of our little one in the puffiest, sparkliest dress that I could find for $5 on the clearance rack at Target.
I bought some of my party supplies at Shop Sweet Lulu, others at the dollar store, some at Party City and then I made the rest.
I made Addie's dress from some satiny peach fabric and some cream lace that was passed down to my from my grandmother. It is a simple pillowcase dress.
I felt that the party went well, was fun, and overall a huge success and a memorable day.
Never mind the part where I spilled my root beer on the couch and carpet five minutes before people arrived . . . or . . . that I broke a vase on the brick patio and stepped on the glass right after the first few guests had arrived. Ahem.
It truly was so much fun and I look forward to planning many more!
