A Winter ONEderland

January 10, 2015 in Decor, KIDspiration, Uncategorized - 1 Comment - 2 min read

Ever since Johanna, or as we call her Joie, was born (on that memorable Christmas day in 2013), I knew I wanted her first birthday theme to be “A Winter ONEderland.” Okay, well maybe it was about a week after she was born that I originally thought of the idea. After all, one of the main reasons I wanted children was so I could inevitably plan birthday parties. Who doesn’t love a good party!? With that said, I waited until the last minute to put it all together, typical. The holidays really snuck up on me this year. We spent Thanksgiving in St. Marteen celebrating my father in law’s 70th birthday and by the time we got back to the states it was practically December! Luckily I was able to get her invites out before we left, so at least I knew people were coming. At least that was a start!

Her invites were purchased off etsy from a store called ArtHormer. For the sake of not giving out my address I’m only showing you all half of the invite, but you get the idea!

As soon as we arrived home from vacation we had Joie’s first birthday pictures done by a photographer friend, Kaley Mathews (of Bellair, FL). She did an amazing job! I went to my trusty local HomeGoods & Target stores to purchase some props for the shoot. The rocking chair was a gift from her great-grandmother and the “one” banner was also purchased from an etsy shop called DecorateYourBigDay (along with other decor I’ll get into later). And last but not least her adorable outfit was purchased from SweetBirthdayGiggles, also on etsy.

Meanwhile, I had started the search for decorations and I found my jackpot when I came across The Oriental Trading Company. All the remainder decor you’ll see below either came from them or Party City. The day turned out beautiful and most importantly Joie had a great time with great company!

 I hope you all enjoyed an inside look at the makings of “Johanna’s Winter Onederland” as much as I enjoyed sharing it with you all! If you are curious about any other aspect of her party I am always available at MyLittleLoveClothing@gmail.com! Cheers!

Thank you all again! Xo Noelle

    • It’s an exclusive club and they may be the presidents (in my humble opinion 😍) #thegooddudesclub #raisinggentlemen / @thewishingelephant
    • We’re about a month (month and a half) out from move in of our new home and antsy is an understatement! Things may be kind of slow here over this time as we have to pack up our current home and de clutter like a mofo 😂 So bear with me! I’m also going through and organizing some stuff on my blog to hopefully make my posts more accessible for you all to sort through moving forward. So much fun stuff coming up and I can’t wait to bring it all to you! For now here is the picture that started it all! I shared Joie’s updated nursery featuring her floor bed many moons ago and it blew up. Everyone loved the idea of this floor bed (which is really just a trundle bed with no wheels) and from this I created a blog to dish all the details. And 3.5 years later here we are 🙋🏻‍♀️ Thank you to everyone new and old who has made this journey so much fun! #homewithnoelle #floorbed #montessorifloorbed
    • There’s something about wanting to disinfect and clean my whole house after that run the Flu gave us the last few weeks. #ad That’s about the same time I stock up on all the things from Lemi Shine.  I know I can trust their better-for-you line which gives me the safe ingredients I need for my family but also the power of citric extracts to clean the way I need my surfaces cleaned (and without leaving behind any toxic residues!) Lemi Shine recently launched some of their amazing products at select Publix locations over Florida so make sure to check yours to see if they’re carrying it yet! You definitely will want to give this line of cleaning products a try! #cleanbetterdobetter
    • Finally sharing ALL the details from the boys’ first birthday #ontheblog now 🎉✨ See all the decor, the adorable set up I had for the boys, all the great favors and gifts we were able to donate to toys for tots! It was such a memorable day! #onewildyear #wildonebirthday #twins1stbirthday
    • Getting their new @diono Rainier 2 AXT car seats adjusted before school pickup for the girls and I can’t get over how grown up these little boys are looking 💙💚 They’re both shooting up physically and developmentally and it’s so fun to watch! Also, #twinmoms please send me all the tips on getting them to the car and in their seats safely because switching from infant seats to convertibles with twins has been a learning curve 😂 (note: I realized after this picture that Beau’s headrest needs to be lower) #diono #rainier2axt
