1st birthday party in pics...

In case you're wondering...I've been recovering from the 1st birthday party hangover...add a crazy work schedule on top of that and here I sit a week and half later finally blogging all of the details of Addie's 1st birthday party.  We had a wonderful day spent with family and close friends and a lot of wonderful memories to carry with us....until next year...

So...here's the story - told in pictures.  I've included in the descriptions all of the wonderful vendors that helped make this party such a success...

These ideas are certainly not all my own....I was inspired by so many of my blog friends and of course...pinterest.  Feel free to email me about any of the details...I'd love to share!

And a HUGE thanks to my parents for letting us host the fiesta at their house and Lis and J for ALL of their help in getting everything set-up and ready for the big day....there is absolutely no way I could have pulled it off without all of their help!!!!
