.Kennedy's First Birthday Party.

I got the pictures back from our photographer and I can't stop looking at them!! So much planning and love was poured into this day for our girl. It's hard to believe it's behind us now. I'm so glad that I had Yana there taking photos the day of so we can always relive it!! Having her there took so much stress off me because I was able to mingle, chase Kennedy around and make sure everything else was going smoothly all while she captured the day. 

The morning of her party it was raining. We live in Sunny San Diego where it hardly ever rains, so to say I was freaking out would be an understatement!! The whole party was outside at Kennedy's grandparent's house, so rain was not in the plan. Luckily, the weather ended up turning around about two hours before her party started. It did make for a little bit of a hectic scene trying to make sure everything looked perfect! I can't say how thankful I am for all the help we got for our loved ones with everything. Without them, it wouldn't have been able to happen. When they say it takes a village, they aren't kidding.

I went into great detail {here} about the theme and inspiration for the party decor. I'm still in awe of how everything turned out. My vision came to life that day! I only wish I could have kept the donut table up in our kitchen forever ;) A little secret, I didn't even eat one donut that day because I was so busy running around. If you're in San Diego, they are from Steph's Donut Hole in Alpine & seriously the most delicious!! Extra points to them because they let me bring in my own gold sprinkles!! 

I have linked every decor item below in case you want details for an upcoming party you may have. Feel free to email me {} if you have any questions about a specific item. All the cake stands, baskets, and glass containers for the donuts were purchased from Marshalls, Home Goods or TJ Maxx. My mom and I live in those stores, haha. We started buying them months ago and tucking them away. I highly recommend doing this if you know your theme far in advance. It helps with costs so you are not putting all the money out at once. 

When it comes to all the other party decor, I can't recommend Pretty Lil Party & Confetti Mama enough!! Seriously, their decor is priceless. Everything was such great quality, gorgeous, and all our guest were raving about it. I feel honored that I was able to work with both of these shops!! I wouldn't have been able to bring my vision to life without them. I will be using them in the near future when it comes to wedding related parties :) 

Now on to all the photos.....

Kennedy telling her buddy secrets!

For food we had a taco man! Which I highly recommend going this route beacuase we didn't have to worry about cooking or clean up. Not to mention, the tacos were amazing!! Win, win!! 

At first she wasn't too sure about the cake. She was so dainty when it came to digging in. She fell in love once she got a good piece!! Look at this little cake monster...<3

The beginning of opening presents....she didn't last long until something else caught her eye ;) She got SO many cute outfits, bathing suits, toys and a very adorable mini mouse quad from her grandparents! My mom also gifted her this sign that I've had my eye on for years!! Now if I could get Tyler to hang it in her room, haha!
