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

    Hello! Noelle here! I am the owner + creator of this blog. I am the wife to an amazing man and mother to 4 children under 5! Two incredible little girls who are 16 months apart and TWIN baby boys! They all keep me very busy to say the least but I have learned to embrace the chaos! They say children don’t allow you to be lazy and I couldn’t agree more! I love my family, decorating, being a total mamarazzi, shopping small, and writing. Here you will find everyday KIDspiration from kids play spaces to room décor, mom life and more. For more about this blog and me hit the “about me section” and keep reading! Welcome and I hope you enjoy what you see!

    • #morethanmamahood // From as early as I can remember I wanted to be a mom. I had the amount of kids and how old I wanted to be when I was done having them in my head. I put it out into the universe on multiple occasions. The universe more than reciprocated my dreams by giving me the most incredible man to create a life with! But just as much as I wanted to be a mom I also wanted to follow my creative dreams too. It wasn’t until I had my first daughter that I realized I could do both. I was capable of creating exactly what I always dreamed of. This blog is more than just sharing products I love, it’s the creative outlet that I need to feel like me. I enjoy spending way too much time throwing a party that my friends can enjoy, or decorating a space I can share with family. I love helping brands that I adore to showcase their products so that other parents can be made aware of them. To create endless inspiration. This stuff makes me feel like me and nothing more! So I may be a mom but I’m also following my dreams ✨ I’m so thankful for the opportunity to team up with @wearingmomjeans (and some other amazing mamas!) on this ‘More Than Mamahood’ project and you can see the video we participated in on her page now! If nothing else I hope this opens your eyes to the possibility and happiness that you are deserving of, mama 💕 #motherhood #wereinthistogether
    • Take a tour of the playhouse before it gets decorated for our playroom reveal!
    • Giving you a tour of the under the stairs playhouse as it stands now on the blog tonight! The fort inside is just as well made as out the outside and I was happy to test it out for the kids 😜 They still haven’t seen it! It’s going to be good. Head to the link in my bio (I will post in stories too along with a video tour) for more! I’m so excited for the kids to see it! Their reaction will be part of a fun project I’m working on AND part of the big surprise I’m working towards being able to announce SOON ✨ Thank you for all your support, I’m just as eager to get talking 🥰 #underthestairsplayhouse #kidsinteriors
    • I am at a loss of words for the amazing video @isbellfamilyfilms put together for me using all the random videos I had in my phone from our vacation! These videos would have otherwise gotten lost in a sea of other videos but instead they turned them into this priceless family montage that we can enjoy for years to come! If you want to turn your random videos into something this beautiful don’t hesitate! Isbell Family Films works wonders 🎥✨I linked the full YouTube link in my stories as well! #familyvaca #familyvideography
    • Just two little boys looking more and more like big boys 😭💙 Remember when they were just born!? That was yesterday right? Knowing they’re my last two makes this whole growing up part even harder and so bittersweet! I’m so content being done with the baby phase of our life but watching the baby in them slip away is hard too. It’s such a weird place to be in. But we’re done. Totally done 🤣 Did you know when you were done having kids? I’d love to hear below! 👶🏻 🍼
    • Happy first (official) day of summer! We may have been on two summer trips already but we’ll still celebrate the #firstdayofsummer because we just love summer that much ☀️ #beachdays #summervacay
