First Birthday Party

It's been a while.  I'm going to do better.  Eventually.  Promise. 

My daughter Eloise is turning five next month.  Five!  It's hard to believe. We have just started to plan her birthday party. She wants a water park party and a party in the back yard with dress up clothes and disco balls hanging from the trees.  Um...yea. That's the theme as of today.  It's quite likely to change tomorrow. 

Regardless of the event, I'm a big fan of details whether it be planning a child's birthday party, happy hour with friends or the look and feel of a couple's wedding flowers. It shows people you care.  Of course while planning, I picture every birthday party detail just as perfect as could be.  What I don't picture are all the little things that can and DO go wrong!

Here's an outtake from my daughter Alice's first birthday party.  Complete with smash cake, sarcastic family members and well a little something that didn't go quite as planned.

I hope this gives you a good laugh. Enjoy!
