Charlotte's 1st Birthday and Baptism

I promise this will be the last post on the topic. But I wanted to share some of the details of Charlotte's 1st birthday party. We kept it small and simple as I didn't have time to plan a huge elaborate party and kept it at just family, however I did manage to add a few fun details that I thought I would share with you!

As you can see in the title of this post, we grouped two celebrations into one. We decided since everyone has been busy and we've put it off for a year now, there was no better time to get Charlotte baptized than on the same day of her party. This way we got away with just one party and limited the travel on our family.

The day started early with Charlotte's baptism and then everyone came back to our house to celebrate. The only downside of this master plan was the fact that I didn't take into account nap time, so that made things a little difficult, but not unbearable. Here are just a few pictures of the baptism.




When it came time to do the party, even though it was small, I still wanted to have a theme and to do a few things around the house to decorate for the day. I was hell bent on not having another Minnie Mouse themed party, but unfortunately I couldn't avoid it. Don't get me wrong, you all know I love Disney, but sometimes it's fun to do something a little different. The reason I ended up going Minnie was because I wanted to do something special with all the monthly updates. After all the work I've put into those throughout the year, I wanted a way to showcase it. And since they were Minnie Mouse themed I figured to just run with it. Also, I happened to walk into H&M last week and found the perfect Minnie Mouse party dress, so the rest just kinda fell into place.
