We decided to go all-out for her first birthday party because, well, first birthdays are the most special of them all, besides her actual day of birth. First birthdays mark a huge event, that you as a parent survived the first year and your child has made it from newborn, infant to toddler hood. A major deal! We wanted everyone that has been a large part of her life to be able to come and celebrate with us.
We decided on a Paris Theme- just like her nursery. We had her family there that included grandparents, Aunts and cousins. Then her little neighborhood playgroup friends came to celebrate and play. And then our close friends with babies and preschoolers came as well. So it was a full house! As much as we wanted even more of our friends and their children there to help celebrate, it was just too much for our Little Lu and we did not want to over stimulate her, so we apologize if you felt snubbed and did not get an invitation. We still love ya :)
I'm thinking next year for Bday #2 we will pick a park venue, less hectic and no cleaning. It's all about stress-free and low maintenance! So glad she has a May birthday and we can move it to outside :)
