So The Kraze’s 2nd birthday party was a week ago and I’m so anxious to see those photos! I can. not. wait. In order to keep myself from stalking our photographer (who said I should have them this week, so stay tuned), I decided to do a little reminiscing of the 1st birthday party.
Much like the name of this blog, the theme for their first birthday party was ‘Two Shades of Pink’. There was so much significance put on this FIRST birthday party. To all you haters who think, “They won’t remember it. It’s more for you than for them.” Boo-ya! One day, they will see these photos and (hopefully) think I was AWESOME! They will see the effort and hard work put in. They will see all the people that showed up because they love them. Ok, and I love to plan parties!
We’re so blessed to live in an AH-mazing neighborhood with a great park within walking distance. We reserved the pavilion, which also happens to be pretty awesome! The party was set up around the three-sided fireplace in the middle of the pavilion. That’s right – no standard rectangle of a roof with just a bunch of picnic table sitting underneath!
After clean up, we stepped away for a few family photos!
Clapping for a super successful first birthday party! We are so very blessed with such loving, giving friends!

*Cake Stand – My seriously awesome, hard-working, loyal & loving husband and dad cut this from a stump we took from a historic tree that had to be cut down in our neighborhood. I wish I could link to them here, bc this was no easy task!
