In just a few short weeks our Little Miss Lillian will be a year old! Jesse and I are so excited to celebrate her 1st birthday and are having a blast brainstorming what we want for the party: a small and intimate family only affair or a big, my super sweet one birthday block party. Honestly, if I could do anything for her party I would rent a big house in Sonoma or Napa with a huge pool and have a three day party!! How fun would that be? Maybe like a Lillianpalooza or Babychella?

When it comes to planning parties of any size, I am more of the mindset that the people matter more than the decorations. I love thoughtful details but when I am sure you know by now that my attitude is not DIY, but BIY (buy it yourself). I go to parties and weddings and showers for the community and connection and that is what I hope to have at Miss Lillian's party. I almost feel like her party is a thank you to all guests for being a part of her life this first year!

My friend Jeanne of Shop Sweet Things just launched Harlow & Grey party goods and they are so cute! I love how all of the products have personality, taste, and playfulness and no DIY required! I love their Goddess Collection and cannot wait to see their other products! Check them out if you haven't already! And please, send me your thoughts and ideas for 1st birthday parties. In the meantime, I will pinning away my inspiration on Lillian's 1st Birthday board so be sure to check that out!
