Klair Marie's First Birthday Party

So.... this post is a little late. The partying took place over the weekend, but Klair and I came down with a cold and it's taken me more time than I would have liked to put this all together. Please forgive me my tardiness and enjoy.

We had so much support from friends and family for Klair's birthday this last weekend! We threw her a party on Saturday with a great turnout and then again on Sunday for some family. It was so fun to see so many loved faces, and I really enjoyed it all. Plus, Klair made out like a bandit with toys, books, and other presents. Everyone was far too generous.

This is a photo of our house that Sam took through the peep-hole window on our door. 
Pretty artistic, eh?

The entrance.

The food. 


The decor. 

Sam just had to decorate her high chair.
He told me, "It's all about the details."                                      He also made this banner by hand.

Sam created a giant  "card" for Klair that everyone signed. My favorite inscription was "please walk for me" from my 6 year old nephew. 

We made a slideshow of Klair's pictures and played it on the TV. I love our dog's enthusiasm in this picture. 

I bought a kiddie pool and made a ball pit out of it. It was a big hit with the kiddos.

Klair and her cousins. They wanted to help her open her presents. 

She got pretty good at ripping off wrapping paper by the end of it all.     

She wasn't too thrilled about the idea of eating a cupcake in front of a crowd. I think it's the only time I would ever try to force her to eat a cupcake. I eventually gave up.

Haha, is it mean that I love this photo? 


  1. your decorations are so pretty!! And, may I say your gluten free cakes look delicious!

  2. LOVE these decorations!! Such a sweet post :)

    But the lipstick I'm wearing in my last post is the Revlon Super Lustrous Creme Lipstick in Va Va Violet, I love it and would def recommend it :)

    1. Thank you! And thanks so much for the lipstick info, I've been looking for a new color to add some variety. I love that it's Revlon and I can just pick it up on my next trip to Target :)

  3. Such a cute birthday party, and a seriously cute little girl! I love all the pink and yellow colors together! Cute blog :)

    1. Thank you so much! You're so sweet! I really appreciate that.

  4. Thanks for your sweet comment! I love your blog too! It's so happy.You have good style! Plus, I think your daughter's name is the best. ;)

  5. Oh, also! Props for making a BEAUTIFUL gluten-free cake! You've got this!

    1. Thank you so much! The gluten-free cake was a bit of an experiment, but it actually turned out quite well and tasted normal, Yaaay! And I couldn't agree more. Claire/Klair's (regardless of the spelling) are the best :)

  6. Looks like a fun party! Happy 1st Birthday to Klair!! Love the idea of the pictures and then people can write on it. "Please walk for me"... so cute!

    1. Thank you! My husband had the idea for the picture/card. I think it will be fun for her to read all of the little notes and signatures some day :) And I know! That made me laugh. My nephews are too funny.


Thanks for stopping by! I read and appreciate every comment. Look back for a reply.
