Ellie's first birthday party

We had the absolute SWEETEST day celebrating our girl turning ONE!! Ellie’s 1st birthday party was truly a dream come true. Of course I had been planning it for several months, & I’m so thankful for how perfectly everything came together! I just wanted a party that was all about our girl, & it was exactly that! Ellie loved opening her presents & seeing all of her favorite people in one place, but her favorite part was definitely getting to eat her cake!! She had so much fun!!

I want to thank our families for their help with everything!! Dyl’s parents helped us create the balloon arch the night before & Dyl’s mom helped me do the flowers! My mom & my twin Kelsey helped set up, & Kelsey ran all my last minute errands the morning of the party! Dyl’s sister Katie made the macaroons which were amazing!! My sister Kendall took most of these photos so I could enjoy the party! We’re so thankful for each of you!!

I have to brag on a few of my sweet friends who did the other party details & seriously made my dreams come true! One of sweet brides Margie of Merry Mail custom designed the party invitations, & I will forever be obsessed with how perfect they are. My talented friend Danna of Danna’s Dozen made Ellie’s beautiful cake & delicious bundlets for our guests! Another one of my sweet brides Lindsey made Ellie’s cute onesie. My friends at Galleries provided our rentals which really transformed our backyard to be the perfect spot for our celebration. I wanted Ellie’s 1st birthday party to be at our home surrounded by all of the people who have loved & prayed for her during this past year & before she was even born! I’m FOREVER thankful for God’s grace in giving us the best gift in Ellie!!

I’m so excited to share my favorite moments from her party!!!
