carters first birthday

The days leading up to Carters birthday were busy so we didn't have much time to stop and think about the fact that we were soon going to have a ONE year old! We decided for her first birthday we would have a party in California to celebrate.

When we were planning the party the first thing we established was that we wanted to hire vendors so that the decor, cake + food was taken care of. We were flying in from Disneyland the night before and really wouldn't have any time to put things together.

The theme that we went with was Carters Pink Paradise. When we took her to Hawaii for the first time she played her little heart out at the beach all day long, ate too much shave ice + really just fell in love with the island life so when choosing a theme we knew it had to be some kind of paradise party!

We filled the house with Hawaiian food from L &L Hawaiian BBQ, sweets from Paper Heart Patisserie, florals by Mignon Floral Co., signs by David and Leanna, enamel pins from Ways and Means/Studio Mega and topped it all off with shave ice from Kona.

Carter swam most of the day with family, ate some yummy food + then dug into her cake. She was a happy girl until it was nap time! We loved every part of the day + was so happy to celebrate our happy little bug with family + friends.
