Wild + One Birthday Ideas



Emerson is turning one on Friday! Needless to say I'm in full planning mode. Her invitations went out a few weeks ago, but I still need to pull the rest of the party details together. We're going with a wild one 'woodland' themed party.

The plan is to keep it minimal and modern. I mean she's only turning one. Think burlap, wood rounds, fun treats and some pink and mint.

Above pretty much sums up what I'm thinking -- various photos form the year. homemade cake, small bites, a cute crown or highchair banner, wild one print outs and a treat for later.... just to mention a few.

As for her outfit [because my sister is concerned] she'll be rocking something sassy. A fur vest might even be involved. Either way I love how timeless the chambray dress and moccasins look.

Regarding her birthday gift we splurged and bought her a new carseat as her birthday/christmas gift. We're practical parents/people. However, we'll probably purchase a couple of new board books and contribute money to her college fund. Yes, girlfriend already as a college fund. It's never too early to start saving!

It's all coming together and we can't wait to celebrate ONE year!

BOOKS ON HER LIST:

  4. Love the party ideas!! and we're doing the same thing for Violet's gift -- a car seat and college fund $$! I'm pretty sure she'll be thankful for that later in life vs. more toys. xo jillian - cornflake dreams
