Ava’s Frida Kahlo inspired 1st birthday fiesta!

September 2, 2018
Frida Kahlo birthday party

We knew we wanted to do something special for Ava’s 1st birthday. First birthdays are a BIG deal to us. (See Eliana’s and Lia’s here). The first 12 months of having a baby is stressful, challenging, amazing, sad, wonderful and joyous – All rolled into one. We like taking a moment, not just to honour baby’s 1st year but also to celebrate the “new family” we’ve become. Ava shares a birth date, July 6th, with one of my favourite “sheroes”;…

A letter to our daughter on her 1st birthday

Just a Mamma Letter to a one year old

Here we are, one year after the 1st moment I held you, the 1st time I heard your voice and the 1st instance I looked into your big, beautiful eyes. So many things have happened and changed over the past 12 months and although it sounds like a decent amount of time, it actually went by in a flash. Our tiny, fragile baby girl that slept for hours on end has become a bubbly, feisty toddler crawling wherever she likes,…

Just a Mamma Babys 1st birthday

And just like that our baby girl is 1. It’s been a year like no other and I am overwhelmed by the thought of already having spent 365 days with our Ava. It’s strange how, the more kids we have, the more appreciative I become of every second I get to spend with each of them. Of course there’s also just something extra special about a 1st birthday… So, why not celebrate it with a cake smash? Unique in every…

DIY Pink Party 1st Birthday Celebration

January 11, 2018

Back in 2013 we celebrated Eliana’s 1st birthday. It was our first time planning and hosting a kids party. I’m not sure who was more excited; Mr. Perfect or myself… Eliana honestly couldn’t care less but, we were 1st time parents that survived the 1st year! It NEEDED to be celebrated. We went for the ultimate cliché; a girly PINK PARTY! (It was the year of pink and clichés are there for a reason, right?) I planned every last detail…

Turning 3 and it’s all about me!

October 2, 2017

3 It’s always been favourite of mine… 13 Feb 2003 – the day I met Mr. Perfect, October 3rd – our wedding anniversary, also the amount of little ladies we currently have and 3, the age of our middle little. Isn’t 3 just the cutest? We’re past the hard work of those 1st few years and everyone survived the “terrible twos”… no more bottles, diapers, no trying to decipher the wants and needs of a 3 foot dictator. Yes, 3 is…

This got us thinking… let’s put together a Tea for Two, garden style. It would be a quaint backyard garden tea party with all her little friends and being a tea-lover myself, I’ll admit, this party got me really excited!…

Eliana’s Bubbles Themed Birthday Party

December 19, 2016

For Eliana’s 2nd birthday we wanted to do something fun, something everyone would enjoy and something Eli would LOVE! Something with bubbles… The 1st thing that “popped” into my mind was BUBBLES! Kids of all ages love bubbles. Pops of pink, teal and yellow on the cutest white picnic benches made for a crisp, clean look. Ribbons, washi tape, a few giant balloons and a bubble machine transformed our backyard into a beautiful botanical bubble paradise. A “Bubbly Bar” –…
