Georgia’s 1st Peach Birthday

Something happened last month that I am basically not ok with. Our baby girl turned one. I don’t know how it happened, because I certainly didn’t approve of it.

Georgia is our little love bug. She is quite literally the happiest baby I have ever been around. Always smiling, laughing, expressing herself. She is crazy, in the best way possible.

I didn’t know how I wanted to celebrate her. The older I get the less I care about what other people think in general {lol- whoops- is that ok to admit?!} so I haven’t been one to do parties with a ton of little details. ESP. for my boys because they truly could care less about the decor. They just want their friends, yummy food, and to play. But for Georgia, knowing that it was my last time throwing a 1st Birthday, I wanted it to have some sort of theme.

Our little Georgia peach had a peach themed party and it was perfect. We had a bunch of family and friends, good food, a backyard for the bigger kids to go crazy in, and a sweet little smash cake for her.

For food I made peach flavored cake and cupcakes. The cupcakes even had a little Peach shape to them by using the nifty tinfoil trick in the oven. The smash cake was on top of the regular cake that we served. Perfect because we just took it off for her, and were still able to give our guests un-baby slobbered cake;)

Inside we had pulled pork sandwiches with pretzel buns, salad, donuts {DUH} and fruit salad served in waffle cones. The cones were a big hit with the kids!

The drinks were Peach Sangria and Peach Bellini from Trader Joes. SO yummy and easy on my end!

For the decor, I kept it pretty simple. Peaches in a flower vase, peach shaped balloons, photos from her whole first year strung up, flowers, etc. Nothing over the top, but simple and sweet just like her.

The photo backdrop was super easy. We used the old wood from the ship wall hanging from Winstons old room and added some fake greenery and flowers from Michaels. I got the One balloon on Amazon {Prime is my BFF}. The photos were strung up on a little kit I also got on Amazon. It was really fun and sweet to be able to look through all the photos of her first year. What a blessing she has been.

She was seriously so fun to celebrate.

And in case you missed it on FB and IG, I shared about my ‘fabulous top’ I wore that day. I have worn this top probably five times, and apparently its a freaking ROMPER. As in, NOT a top. LOL. I had been wearing it with one of the leg holes on the side. My girl Kylie broke the news to me. Ohh fashion, you and I just aren’t meant to be.

Georgia Mae,

Your first year of life has been the biggest blessing of all. You, my angel baby, are Heaven sent. Truly. I prayed and prayed I would get the blessing of having a third baby, and especially a baby girl. What I didn’t know was that not only would I get that, but SO much more.

You are my light, my happy place, my instant mood lifter. You truly make my heart swell. I pray that your dada and I can guide you the best way possible in life. That you will grow up knowing how loved and treasured you are. How much God loves you. You are the BEST, baby girl. I love you to the moon.

And just in case yall wanted to have a quick little flash back to her birth:)
