First Birthday!!

So the photos will finally reveal R2D2's name.  We chose to name her Brianna.  I love her name!  It's Irish for strong and I think it fits her perfectly!

If you haven't picked up on it yet, I love arts and crafts, often to the point of losing sleep to finish them. I knew I wanted to make Bri's birthday special, so arts and craft time it was!!  I used etsy a lot, man I love that site!

We'll start with her smash cake.  For her actual birthday, I made it into a little photo shoot. :) 

I think it's an understatement to say she enjoyed her cake.  I used the Wilton tip 2D to make the rosettes.

 Of course I needed to buy here a special birthday outfit. Ends up, I bought two for her.  I absolutely, absolutely loved her dress.  Photo courtesy of Lisa Marie Photography and dress made by OsEsterninhos.

And her shirt was made by The Sassy Squirrel Mom-mom bought her this chair for her birthday.  She loves it!!

Bib made by Julianne Originals and banner by Creative Party Banners.

I spray painted the letters, made the flowers out of felt, and then glued all onto the wreath.

I saw the frame on clearance in Michael's.  I didn't know how I was going to use it, but couldn't pass up the price.  I like the B in the middle!

 I displayed her basket pictures in our dining room.

 And her cake, labor of love!  Despite being time consuming, I found the cake decorating relaxing.  The butterflies are actually edible, and I thought they looked very realistic. I purchased them from Sugar Robot.  For the cupcake stand, I spray painted Wilton's white cardboard stand.

I think Brianna had a wonderful first birthday.  Mommy and Daddy love you very much!!
