Where has the time gone??? Seriously Isis is 11 months old today!! I can't believe it!! I'm so excited, but at the same time, I was over at Dear Baby today (as I am everyday) and Melissa totally reminded me that Isis' birthday is in 1 month and I have completely dropped the ball on planning her party!! I know when it is and where it is and who I'm going to invite, but I have yet to purchase invitations or decide on what we're going to do!
It'll definitely be pretty low-key because it's really more for us than for her. I don't want her to get too over-stimulated, but I'm also just excited to spend some time with friends and family celebrating our sweet girl!!
I love Melissa's idea of using Good Frau for invitations. I love that you can customize them exactly how you want so that your invitations look just like what you want and don't look like anyone else's. I think that's great! (Seriously, she's the master at finding great Etsy stores!)
I also think she has fabulous gift ideas for Christmas. Since I've been student teaching & not working, we don't plan on having a big Christmas this year because we just don't have the resources, but our families have picked out some great things for Isis & I'm excited about those! Although I did think this idea of the IKEA crawl tunnel was pretty amazing - and only $19.99!! I may have to put that on our list!
What did you do for first birthday parties?
Any great themes or party ideas?
