Celine’s first birthday party

Such a fun occasion!

I decided early on that I wanted the party to be low-key. I think I tried to make Louise’s first birthday party a huge thing and spent too much energy thinking about the details versus just trying to enjoy the day. So we invited just family (and a couple of close friends) and kept the food and decor fairly small.

It’s always nice to have a reason to get family together.

It was a really fun time and I think Celine had fun too – although I can promise Louise had more fun! She was excited for days about the “Happy Birthday Celine” party, mainly because she knew there would be cake. We repeatedly and carefully explained to her that the cake would only be eaten at Celine’s party, after we sang “happy birthday.”

Finally…CAKE!

Celine got tired early so we put her in bed around 6:15. I am happy we could get together for a little celebration for our little princess!
