Heart-Themed First Birthday

All first birthdays are exciting days for parents!  It’s such a big milestone and even if that cute little baby doesn’t quite know what’s going on, it’s an important day to document and celebrate! This party was no different! This little girl is such a sweetheart that it didn’t take long to decide on a Heart-Themed First Birthday bash!

Hearts-Birthday-PartyDad is a graphic designer originally from the Philadelphia area, but his family now lives in Florida. They decided to travel home to celebrate their daughter’s 1st birthday with a party at a family member’s house in the Philadelphia area. Being in graphic design, it was pretty easy to decide who would be creating ALL of the details for the party!

They were also able to write notes to the birthday girl on a table runner, along with other fun activities to occupy the little ones! And it was definitely successful!

And of course they were filled with heart and rainbow-colored goodies! Dad also created the wonderful decorations and banners that were around the house. Awe!
