Happy 1st Birthday baby girl!

July 4, 2012

I can’t believe that this girl is already a year old!

What a day! What a great Very Hungry Caterpillar day!

Clare’s namesake traveled from Wyoming for the festivities. What a treat for all of us. We love you Aunt Gerise!

Preparations for the party began long in advance of the day!

The Hungry Caterpillar is a favorite storybook and the party details seemed endless. I was lucky to have found a fantastic (and cheap) coloring book that I then begged family/friends to color. Those images, I cut out in photoshop, and sent to Sam’s Club as a .jpg file for printing onto her cake/cupcakes. I love them!!! Thanks everyone for making it happen!

Pinterest was a great source of inspiration. Aunt Anna made the caterpillar!

I figured out how to design a pennant banner personalized just for Clare’s birthday! Check it out HERE or HERE to make your own.

Just a few fun appetizers to celebrate the wonders of Eric Carle and The Very Hungry Caterpillar.

And the little birthday girl was dressed in her finest…compliments of Gramma Lissa! I love you momma. Thanks for the most adorable outfit!

After all the details, there was a party to celebrate and guests to enjoy!

As “luck” would have it, our downstairs air conditioner (after being serviced late last week), just couldn’t take any more of the Georgia heat and officially quit working. It made for a hot house, a hot birthday party, and a great reason to sit outside.

When you birthday is the day before Independence Day, you get fireworks for your birthday party!

Fireworks in Cumming, GA mean you get to see the firestation, firetruck and firemen too! Thank you for your service AND being such hospitable hosts every year!
