Kaia Mae's First Birthday

Hello Lovelies!
It's been awhile since I last blogged... how is it, that time go so fast?
Speaking if fast... Little Kaia Mae turned 1 at the end of May. May 31st!

What fun we had!
Gosh, seems like she was just making her debut into the world, and now she is 1 year old. Lots of fun planning this past month, making things, and getting ready for her party.

She made a good haul on all sorts of lovely things. As a matter of fact, I am still putting together and assembling all the little cars, and walker type toys. :)

I don't know why it is, that I think, I HAVE to do all these things EVERY time. I think I have a disorder, ha! I get a little OCD about it all. Maybe it's the creative in me? Haven't tried to figure it out, it is just who I am I guess.
I made her a little rag doll,(Which she adores) that made G-ma happy.
 Her headband, shirt and tutu for her special day.
Also included to the list: Pom Poms, garlands, took on a chalkboard repurposing project, and ordered these amazing edible butterflies for her cake from Etsy, and ordered her an adorable little aqua lace romper.

  The Chalk Board project...

 I absolutely love how she dove right in for her first bite!

I even made Tonka, a little hat and tie for the event.
Isn't he just handsome?
Such fun!
Little Kaia Mae Fae...

 And Flower and bee topped sweets...
Single serve Peach Parfaits, with Homemade whipped cream...

It was a wonderful day to remember.
The only thing I wish I had done differently, was have someone take photo's while we were doing this and that.
I didn't get enough pictures, and that I am saddened by. I am used to having tons to choose from.
And we had such delicious food... Asian style picnic noodles, eggrolls, and Kebabs.
A beautiful glass dispenser I bought just for the occasion, with sweet tea and sliced lemons.
Vintage Laces and linen lined tables...
Fresh Flowers...
It was all so very lovely.

But the one's we did get, say it all.
So... I can live with that. :)

Happy Birthday, Grandma's little angel.
 She has my heart, my whole heart.
I never knew of a love like we have, it's such a precious gift.

Hugs to you, until next time.
Take good care.
