last thursday, my precious niece’s first birthday was featured on 100 layer cakelet! my talented and creative sister deserves all the credit for this adorable party and i just love everything she did. perfectly feminine and sweet. all of our big life events (weddings, parties, showers) turn into family affairs and that’s just the way we like it. my sister planned the whole thing and DIYed all of the decor including the triangle garland backdrop, the bunting, the gift bags, the cake topper, etc. i designed the invitations and envelope liners knowing the aesthetic and colors my sis wanted to use, hand lettering the “ryan nicole” and “one.” our mom made all of the balloon poms hanging from the patio and the giant balloon with fringe tassels. and our good-friend-practically-sister, diane, made that beautiful cake!
i cannot believe our sweet little ryan is already one! i love her more than words can say and have loved watching her grow and develop over the past year. i am so excited for the next phase of her talking and walking and becoming a little lady! she sure gets me excited to have one of our own someday.
happy 1st birthday, ryan! we love you a wholeee lot.
