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

    • Happy Father’s Day to all the amazing dads out there! I’m so lucky to do parenthood with this guy. He’s patient, loving, so so funny and fills in all my weaknesses 💙  Everybody he meets loves him too (to the point that I get sighs when I show up to the kids’ pediatrician without him 😆.) I think it’s safe to say our crew hit the daddy jackpot (wether they know it now or not, they will!) ✨ He really is the best! ✨Also, only 1 of 4 kids pictured because, well #4kids 😜 #happyfathersday
    • Today was a travel day for us 🚗 It was time to say good-bye to this trip and hello to the rest of summer break ☀️ The car may have been loaded with a weeks’ worth of stuff jumbled up for our crew but I still love to keep my stuff together (and separate 🤣!) I have loved how multi-functional this Day Trip bag from @loganandlenora has been for this trip and I’m so happy it arrived in time to use! From a crossbody bag to a hand bag AND it slides right on your luggage too 👏🏼 Def my new fav travel companion! #ad #summervacay
    • Last night at the house called for ice cream on the beach for sunset 🌅 Swipe to see these crazy sugar high ladies (& Lo’s sassy self)🍦We had the best week and I hate to see it end but so thankful for the time we had! Hoping our next big event is moving into our house...if it’ll ever get complete 😬 #summervacay #sunset
    • She’s turned into quite the little grommet this trip 🌊 We couldn’t keep her out of the waves so we grabbed her a board more her size (and a life vest for my ease of mind) and we let her fly! #grom #grommet
    • Tonight we got entertained by this steel drum band at the house for some live music during dinner and it may be my favorite night yet!! #beachhouse
    • Joie caught her first wave today 🏄‍♀️ The wipe out after this is in my stories 🤣😬 She was SO determined to learn and I love watching her work towards all her little goals ☀️ The boys also got out there too (also in stories!) Such a fun day!  #boogieboarding
