When I first started to think about Leo's first birthday party, I had originally planned on doing a picnic at a local park. Our apartment is just too small to have tons of friends and family over, and for the most part, I wanted to keep the party simple.
After going through the logistics of setting up a party in the park (short version: a pain), we decided to take the party to a cute pizza place a few blocks from our house.
Leo's birthday (and his party) are on Saturday, so I've spent some time this week putting together a few little crafts to make his party feel special. We're going to keep it low key, but I plan to bring in a few small touches from the inspiration board above to make his party come together.
I worked with Josie at VivaLaLovely on Etsy (her shop seems to be down currently) to make these custom invites and she totally nailed the exact look and feel I was going for.
It won't be a Pintrest-Perfect party, but I'm really excited to celebrate with all of our LA people that have made this year the best of our lives.
