Isabella's 1st Birthday Party

Isabella turned one (a few months ago) and I can't believe how fast she is growing. She is no longer that baby that depended on us for everything,... it is a bitter sweet feeling because at the same time that I miss that little baby, I am proud of the (tiny) human being she is becoming.

We decided to have a small birthday party at our home just for the closest friends and family. I chose the theme Twinkle Twinkle Little Star - it is one of her favourite songs.

After picking the theme, I went online to order the party supplies: plates, napkins, cups, some centerpieces and balloons.

I was able to find this adorable invitation online, I knew it would be perfect for the colour scheme we chose.

Checking Pinterest I saw some birthday boards, and I became obsessed with them,... It is such a great idea to register this milestone. I contacted a Canadian company (great customer service!)  that designed it just the way I wanted, and the result is here:

I ordered it 20'x16'and it was the perfect size. I love it so much!!!!! See the contact for this company at the end of this post.

The menu was prepared at home and it included pulled pork sliders, carrots (Isabella's fave!!!) & tomatoes with hummus, tostitos, layered sandwich - vegan and regular (this is like a layered savory cake - I know it doesn't make sense, but our guests loved them), passion fruit mousse and "brigadeiros" - tradicional Brazilian chocolate truffles.

We ordered the cake from a traditional bakery. The shades of rose-pink matched the colour scheme of the party.

It was such a great time,... Isabella had so much fun from start to end. We would like to thank our friends for celebrating such an important day with us,... also a special thanks to Grandma Ivete, and her God-Parents Ivana and Izzet for helping us to prepare everything for this special moment. We love you guys!

Grandma came to help us and celebrate with our baby Bella! Such a great memory.

I just love this picture!!!!!
