Happy 1st Birthday to You, Cole.

Our little turned one year old.  Oh, it may be nearly two weeks after his first birthday (approximately two and a half weeks since the party)... but it really does feel like it happened yesterday.  And since I've been so good at blogging lately (ha!), it felt like the right time to share a few photos from the party. 

We celebrated the big day at my in-law's home and luckily the weather cooperated.  With a sunny, mid-seventies temperature, we held everything poolside.  
I didn't really choose much for a theme, other than bright and summery colors.  I crafted all of the garlands out of tissue paper, twine, and of course felt (see my square felt garlands post).  I also picked up a handful of blue star helium balloons. 
We hosted a small group of people in early afternoon, so light snacks were provided.  And a few goodies... cupcakes, cake pops, cake balls, and a personal birthday boy cake for Mr. Cole.
While there was a lot of prep work for this party on my part, I couldn't have asked for better results.  And I'm pretty sure Cole enjoyed the birthday cake mommy made for him...
We love you Cole!
