The Story of Annabelle’s 1st Birthday Party


Looking for some budget-friendly ideas for your baby’s 1st birthday party?

Take a look at this lovely party that Mary hosted for her daughter, Annabelle, on her first birthday. 

I spoke to Mary about the party, what she said shows that you don’t have to spend much money to make it memorable for your little one’s 1st birthday.

What inspired the theme of your child’s 1st birthday party?

Pinterest is my go-to place for party idea inspirations and DIY projects. I created a board for Annabelle’s first birthday party filled with some really cute ideas, but nothing was jumping out at me.

The light bulb moment came when I was shopping one day with Anna, and she kept pointing at those Mer Meri cupcake liners with owls.

What is one element of the party that you are particularly proud of?

The wall of photos and birthday banner was my favorite. I loved the process of making it.

Putting all the photos of Anna together reminds me of how much she has grown. The family and friends also enjoyed looking through them at the party.

Did you work with any vendors? If so, who? And what did you like about them?
