The party was held at my In-Laws house. We had hoped that the renovation on our new house would be done in time to have her party there, but our house was nowhere near ready to host a large group of people by that time, and we worried we would be too crowded in our current house.
I had a custom made invitation made by Simply Printable on Etsy, and then I had them printed at CVS:
I was really proud of the birthday balloon wreath I made for the occasion. I followed this tutorial at How Does She. I'm going to decorate for birthday with this wreath for years and years to come.
We had 8 kids at the party - technically 6, but I had two pregnant friends there so I counted them in the mix for Dr. Seuss party hats for each of the children.
Stop here you see!
And write a very special message to me.
Share a birthday wish, or just say "Hi Baby!"
For your most favorite one year old lady!

This is something I'll treasure at any age.
Natalie's High Chair was decorated with this kit I bought on Amazon, the balloons were from Party City.
I had two garlands with Natalie's monthly pictures from 1-11 to show how much she's grown in the past year. The first garland were with photos of her sitting up in a chair each month:
The second garland were the overhead photos I took each month with her monthly stickers on her shirt:
I had various "1st Birthday decor" items all around the house.
Natalie's First Birthday Outfit was ordered from Eleventh House Designs on Etsy.
I loved the little tutu, and Natalie didn't seem to mind it either - I guess I've got a little tutu wearer on my hands now!
