Mmmm cake! Jules was so cute and dainty when she was eating her cake. I helped her out a little by sticking her hand in it and as you can see, she had a big smile after that! 

Daddy & Mommy with the birthday girl! We both dressed to match the theme. :)

After cake Jules had an outfit change and then it was time for presents! So blessed by all of our family friends! Thank you!!!!

Julianna's party was hit and I am extremely happy with the way it all turned out! A HUGE THANK YOU to  my parents, brother, sister in-law and aunt for their helping hands!!

  1. Julianna's party looks AMAZING! You did a great job!

  2. What a FABULOUS party, Ashley!! Everything is so perfectly coordinated, and I love that you supported so many different Etsy shops - thank you! : )

  3. Julianna's 1st birthday party looks like it was amazing! I'm sure she enjoyed it and hopefully when she's old enough to look back at all the pictures of her as a little baby she'll realize how much her mommy loves her and all the effort she put into giving her an awesome and amazing 1st birthday party. Everything looks great and you did such an amazing job on all of the DIY projects you took on!! Congratulations to you and a Happy Belated 1st Birthday to sweet little Julianna!

    My cousin is having her 3rd birthday party this weekend, although I don't think a Pizza Hut will be as festive and creatively decorated as Julianna's Polkadots & Ladybugs birthday party was, but it'll have pizza, birthday cake, & presents. Most of all, it will be fun and full of family!

    Sadly, no blog to share here, nor do we know each other. Heck we don't even live in the same state anymore. I lived in California for almost 2 years when my ex was stationed there as a Marine. I honestly can't remember how I ever came across your blog, but I can say I enjoyed reading it and book marked it ages ago!
