Little Bird

We’re less than a month away from Ava’s first birthday–and her party. And every day that we get closer, I’m reminded that my baby is growing up and that I am in no way ready for her party. I’m actually more prepared than I feel, but it’s definitely daunting…

I have the basic theme and decorations decided, and my mother-in-law (bless her) has been diligently making rose streamers. I have bits and pieces of the decorations but I still have to assemble pretty much all of them. To top it off, I just decided on one last part of the decor… Birds.

Ava means “little bird,” and ever since we decided on her name, Little Bird has been a nickname. I was going over some party stuff in my head this past week, and kept thinking something was missing to the pink and teal theme. That’s when it hit me. Birds! They aren’t only adorable and very popular right now, but they are also super easy to incorporate into a mostly planned party. So this week I am off to the store to buy scrapbook paper, toothpicks, and string, and I will make bird streamers and other bird things. I can finally see the entire picture coming together, and I am so excited! I’ll post pictures of the whole party put together in just a few short weeks!
