pinwheels + pennants

So, our little Nat turned one.

{insert cliche, "they grow up so fast" here.}

I seriously can't believe that this little angel:

Is now THIS little angel:

To celebrate, we had a birthday bash at her Granmama's house. I got the inspiration for the party from Hostess with the Mostess, mainly from this party, but also from lots of other pinwheel-inspired parties on the site.

I found some adorable invitations from Sweet Papers, and got her to customize the colors & layout just for us:

I loved that I could print them myself & save money! Sweet Papers also customized the coordinating tags & toppers, which I printed on cardstock for the cupcake toppers and label paper for the cup stickers. Inexpensive, and easy!

Here are a few more pics of the party. It was such a fun time, and we were so blessed to have so many friends and family come out to celebrate our sweet Natalie!

{yeah...didn't get a "before" pic of the smash cake, but it was ADORABLY decorated by my mom's co-worker to coordinate with the pinwheel design from Sweet Papers}

{also didn't get a good pic of the birthday girl's sweet getup, but we made her a t-shirt from transfer paper that coordinated with the pinwheel design from Sweet Papers}

{So apparently, we owe a good deal of our party stuff to the awesome work of Sweet Papers! Go check them out for birthday party invitations, baby announcements, shower invitations, and more!}


  1. Aaaaw, what a sweet sweet party, your little one is adorable! I'm so happy to see my little bunting freebie was there with you: it tourned out so cute on the high chair.

    Many many thanks for letting me know you liked and used it!
    Have a lovely day!
