Eden celebrated her second birthday a few weeks ago. I can't believe my baby is two years old! It seems like just yesterday we were bringing her home from the hospital.
I have learned some things about birthday parties over the years. I remember being completely offended that my entire family did not attend Zoë's first birthday. We even had the party in Spokane so everyone could come! I won't lie, I was mad for at least two years about that one. In hindsight, it was not a big deal. Zoë doesn't even remember her first or second birthday and neither will Eden. That is not to say that I didn't try to make her birthday extra special, but I didn't feel the need to make it a big production. I make no promises about her next birthday. I'm thinking something along the lines of this. Tu-tu adorable, right?! I just happen to have an in when it comes to tutus. In fact, I may have a tutu addiction. They are literally overflowing from the girls' closets. I still believe that you can never have too many tutus.
Just because I wanted Eden's birthday to be low-key, didn't mean it wasn't going to be cute. And it certainly didn't mean that the party printables weren't going to coordinate with her dress. (Oh yes, I did.)
I cannibalized (sorry, Em!) one of Eden's tutus to decorate our cupcake tower and love how it turned out. And yes, I created party printables that coordinated with Eden's dress. The colors were just too fun not to. I'll have to get a picture of the entire dress. DARLING! And yes, the printables will be in my store soon along with a few other darling designs I have been working on.
Eden loved her little party. One of her favorite things to do is sing "Happy Birthday" to her dolls and animals and pretend to blow out candles. Add some real cupcakes and some presents and you have yourself a party! We had Becky and Todd join us for cupcakes and after we all finished singing "Happy Birthday" to her she insisted that we sing it again (and relight the candles). LOL!
Happy Birthday, Itty! We love you!
