Sophia's Unicorn First Birthday

Happy Monday, friends! I'm so excited to share the professional photos from Sophia's first birthday party taken by Julie Young. She also photographed our family session in the park which we absolutely loved! When we started to think about Sophia's first birthday, which let's be honest I was thinking about when she was 8 months old, we both knew that with the amount of people we wanted to invite, it couldn't be at our condo. I started researching venues and quickly picked Maggiano's in the city. I liked the private function room and that all the food (which was delicious) would be served family style. 


The theme was pretty easy for me to decide on - unicorns! From the invite to desserts, we had little touches of this throughout! It wasn't overpowering, but just enough that it was known! Between Etsy, Amazon and a few local vendors - we had all the unicorn touches needed! I ordered a custom unicorn balloon & pastel rainbow garland from Fig Balloon Co - love how they turned out and she threw in an extra #1 gold balloon which was so sweet! When we got to the restaurant, the tables were missing something, so with the extra balloons that I ordered, an air pump and some double sided tape, I created these little centerpieces on each table! The cake was the first thing I ordered and I absolutely love how it turned out - Party Favors took my Pinterest inspiration and made it come to life! 


Gary worked on a really special video that we showed while everyone was eating & there were a couple of sweet  and heartfelt speeches thrown in! We're so grateful that so many people chose to celebrate Sophia's birthday with us, which is why it was so important to me to have photos taken with each one of the guests and the birthday girl


The stress of hosting a party is something I'll always feel, but in the moment it was so wonderful to be surrounded by our family and friends that helped make this first year of parenthood a bit easier! . Even though she will have no recollection of this, I'm happy that we will be able to show her the photos and video from her first birthday!

It was the most special day & we're so grateful that a good time was had by all!

  12. I bet there wasn't a dry eye with that video - how precious.
    & KUDOSSSSS to you for getting a photographer for the birthday. I tell people that ALLL the time - get someone to document for you - the day is already busy enough & you want to ENJOY it & not be all about focusing on pictures - or angry that you didnt get any after its all over.
