The Countdown Is On!

In 5 days I am throwing my Baby Girl a 1st Birthday party.  In actuality, it is probably more a party for me than for her but don't tell her that.  Oh, I just love to throw parties.  Not just love it.  I actually have issues with it.  I get an idea in my head and it gets bigger and bigger.  I cannot seem to control it.  My husband does not seem to share in this love for party planning and I am constantly told I need to tone it down.  I feel as if with this party I have met him in the middle.  Here is why:

1. Yes we got a bounce house but there are no face painters
2. Yes I have rentals coming but I have agreed to plastic plates and silverware
3. Yes the cake and cake balls were more than he would have spent but I am not catering the rest
4. Yes I have flowers coming but only the bare minimum
5. There will be alcohol - we both agree!

See, half way!

Here is the invitation for the event (I mean party).....

This was created by Pad and Paper, whom I adore and use for everything we mail from this house (more to come on them later).

I am still shocked that my little one is turning 1 and cannot wait to celebrate!

Side note: Can anyone guess my two favorites movies (hint: my daughter's name and theme of the party)


  1. I so wish I could be there! It sounds amazing - take lots of pics please! Look for something in the mail this week :) xoxo to you and little Miss Scarlett.

  2. oh so fun, Sarah - I hope you show pictures! My girl is turning 8 this week, and its freaking me out. Her party isn't going to be until Memorial Day weekend, so I have time to put the pieces together, still. ;)

    Happy Birthday to your sweet girl - xoxo

  3. duh. Breakfast at Tiffany's and Gone with the Wind. I will say though I thought Goonie's was our favorite??
