A birthday party, for Sofia

Sofia's 1st Birthday Party On Sunday Sofia had her first party! I really did everything at the last moment. Special thanks to my mom who helped so much and made it all possible. Here are some details.

It was supposed to rain that day but we decided to risk it and had the table set up outdoors. Luckily rain never came! Sofia also had a very short nap that day and I was afraid she will have a meltdown but she was great and looked like she had a good time. Our guests were late so I had a bit of time to take some pictures. Sofia's 1st Birthday Party Sofia's 1st Birthday Party I made a necklace to match Sofia's dress. I will give it to her when she's older. Sofia's 1st Birthday Party I only managed to make 3 meters of bunting. I decorated the rest with garlands from the dollar store.
