They say surviving the first year with twins is the hardest and so really we all needed a reason to celebrate. The party turned out super fun and I am excited to (finally!) share all the details with you here!

Design and execution of the party was done by the wonderful Let’s Party event planner service (Rebecca specifically!) If you are looking to throw a party but don’t have the time to dedicate to the details I HIGHLY recommend Let’s Party to help you with ALL your party planning needs! Let’s Party is a boutique party planning service with fresh design ideas for any party!

Location: If you have seen any of my previous parties you know that I am all about hosting my own events but for this party we didn’t have the space since we are still not in our new build yet so I set out to find the perfect local place to fit our needs. That is where I came across Little Explorers of Palm Harbor. Their space is super fun and designed perfectly for mamas with little ones. The babies have their own designated play space and the toddlers have free range of another interactive play space too.

When it came to deciding on the cake I went with Hale Life Bakery which is a local Gluten Free & Vegan Dedicated bakery (that now ships nationally!) Beyond that they are also diary, egg, soy, peanut & tree nut free so with my children and their allergies I know I can trust them and the talent behind the bakers here are incredible!  The cake was amazing and a huge hit among my guests. As mentioned they ship now so I wanted to feature their jar sets shown below. These are the perfect treat to send a friend or loved one and they tasted so rich! wild one party, where the wild things are, one wild year, twin first birthday party, party for twins, wild things party, wild party, party for one year old, one year old birthday party, oh happy playwild one party, where the wild things are, one wild year, twin first birthday party, party for twins, wild things party, wild party, party for one year old, one year old birthday party, oh happy play I decided while planning this party that this could be an event to recreate every year to celebrate new moms in my area. Whether you have one baby or multiples that first birthday is special and a milestone for all. We have baby showers and birthday parties but I thought an event for moms of newly aged toddlers would be fun! I sort of used the boys’ birthday to guinea pig such an event and I want to continue throwing something similar year after year! I was able to get some really cool products for my attendees for them to take home, enjoy and use when they may not have ever been able to do so before. I really think my mama friends enjoyed this part! wild one party, where the wild things are, one wild year, twin first birthday party, party for twins, wild things party, wild party, party for one year old, one year old birthday party, oh happy play

Also included a few Skip Hop backpacks!
When it came to gifts I took this opportunity to get donations for Toys For Tots. Every year at Christmas I find it super important to donate toys to children and families who are less fortunate so I asked our guests to bring an unwrapped toy to donate in lieu of gifts for the boys. Our donation pile was amazing and it brought a lot of joy to some local kids this holiday.

  • I’ll be done with the vaca pics soon but as I’m here unpacking from the trip (yes, I’m still unpacking 😂) I had to share this portable playpen from @babyseater.us that we received before we left! Normally the boys FREAK OUT if we try to contain them in any sort of baby jail (I mean play pen 🤪) but because this one can be left open at times the boys took to it much better. It was their space for them play and come and go as they please. They didn’t look at it negatively because of this! SO if I needed them contained it wasn’t a huge deal to zip the side up quick while I got done what I needed to do and they kept on playing 👏🏼 I may just keep this set up ongoing for them to have their own space since they seemed to love it so much! I’m going to link this in my stories now if you’re interested! Total game changer for these two #ad #twinlife
  • She was eager to get back to playing golf so we ran out to get a couple drives in before those dark clouds made their way in🏌️‍♀️ #5yearsold #juniorgolf
  • We sure are missing our sunsets at the beach house right about now! I just pulled these pictures off my camera of the girls and they were so happy running off their energy to this beautiful scene ☀️Now it’s back to hitting golf balls at sunset until we move! You can see these little ladies working it in my stories (a full day of the #usopen will do that to ya!) 🏌️‍♀️ #beachsunsets #mygirls
  • 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
