poppy's 1st birthday party

Monday, October 3, 2011

We celebrated Poppy's 1st birthday in August. Some of Poppy's friends, all born within the same year as her, were at the party. Lots of babies, friends and family - just how I like it.
My sweet friend Denise made the cake, I showed her a photo of my "dream cake" and thought we could make it together - she showed up with the cake looking exactly like the photo. Amazing. The poms on the cake are from Potter and Butler in Oregon. Sonia from Sugary Sweet Things made Poppy's cookies.
The cupcake toppers, birthday hat and tags all came from Toadally Cute in Seattle. The lanterns are from Cathay in Richmond and the little sandwiches were made by my mom and mother-in-law. It really does take a village to throw a party...especially when you have three in a row (Zoë's party pics are next)!
I thought Poppy would go for it with the cake and cupcake - she was mesmerized but wouldn't try it! All of the photos were taken by Mika Inokoshi...best idea I every had was asking Mika to take photos of the birthday parties.
Here's the crew of kids that were at the party...our three and four other babes. Perfect. How much fun will it be to watch these littles grow up together?
A really fun day but so hard to believe that our baby girl is now one. A year flies by. Poppy is almost walking, she is determined to keep up with her big brother and sister...I'm enjoying every minute. Sigh.
