MILA'S F I R S T BIRTHDAY

Our little bloom bebe turned a year this past weekend...

{{A year!!}}

And since we wanted to celebrate this little life, but also {{since our budget was near zero for a party}}, I promised Kavs that I would only use decor we already had.

Which means...I had more FUN getting creative and using sweet vintage finds from the Studio, our house, and we were also blessed with a few wonderful gifts from some of our favourite businesses on Instagram (details below).

A few streamers, heirloom tea cups, handmade cupcakes, and a homemade bubble concoction {{with some of the BEST friends and family imaginable}} made this Woodland Tea Party a precious, whimsical day we will not soon forget. {{And a HUGE THANK YOU to my parents, for graciously opening up their home!}}

Celebrating a birthday doesn't have to be an extraordinary expense!

Keeping it all about LIFE and LOVED ones was our goal, and what a sweet day it was!

Happy First Birthday, to the apple of our eye...

Plates I have collected over the years...at flea markets, The Good Will, and from my sweet mama!

Glass teardrop bottles  from our "message in a bottle" theme from our wedding and my great grandmother's tea set.

Banners that my grandmother made for Mila's nursery {{here}}, a bird cage from our wedding, and a thrifted chalkboard for Millie's monthly photos board.

This high chair crib was from Mila's baby shower {{here}}.

Since I made these little ladies flower crowns, it was only fitting the little men had Peter Pan hats..{{tutorial below}}. :)

...And gigantic bubbles a mile long seem to make any party a hit!

It was sweet Lukey's birthday that day too!

And the babes weren't the only ones having fun! This beautiful mama is one of my life-long besties!
