I don't know if I've mention before how much of a planner I am. I prefer to have every event, vacation, weekend planned down to the minute. Well, maybe I'm not that bad, but you get my point. For several weeks now, I have been planning Emma's 1st birthday party. Ok, ok, for months I have been planning Emma's birthday party. Or at least thinking about it.
I have FINALLY made some decisions and I though I might share them with you all, wonderful readers of the Emma blog.
Since her party will be ON Halloween, the party will be Halloween-esque. No ghost and goblins hanging from the ceiling, but we will acknowledge the holiday by using Halloween-y colors (purple, orange, and lime green) and the guests will be in costume (ADULTS INCLUDED). That is mainly because the Little Bitties don't have a big chance to wear their costumes and this party will be an excuse to wear it twice, and because I like to humiliate my family and friends and make them wear costumes! Clinton and I will also be in costume... yes, we have already picked them out. Yes, it is still August.
I have spent hours on my favorite website, etsy.com, and Emma is going to have 2, count 'em... 1, 2... custom outfits. I doubt both will be worn at the party, but one will be used as her costume for trick or treating. I'll post pictures when I get them!
I have been working with some great vendors on etsy to make Emma's party super special and fun... I kind of want to keep it secret, but I CAN'T... here is the samples I got back for her party supplies....
Top- Favor Tag
Bottom- Cupcake Toppers (will be on sticks)
I hate to share my secrets, but...
these were made by a very nice lady, Jeniene, who worked with me to make everything exactly how I wanted it! Check out her etsy shop, Ciao Bambino
That's all I'm going to share for now... there's so much more to come! My baby is going to be ONE!
