Sadie’s First Bee Day Party

Now that it’s been six months since Sadie’s first birthday party, it’s about time I blogged about it!

First birthday

My parents graciously offered up their house for Sadie’s party and they really helped make the day so special! We celebrated her big day in late September, the weekend after she turned one, and couldn’t have asked for better weather or company!

I thought it would be fun to have a bee-themed party, so we took that and ran with it, haha. We called it her “bee day party” and even found these adorable invitations. My sister lent us a bumble bee dress her daughter had been given (I called it a hand-me-up since Sadie is older than Caroline, lol) and I had an absolute blast making cupcakes and treats.

My mom and dad full-out spoiled Sadie by having a bounce house and games at her party! It was truly so much fun for the kids and adults. There’s just something about bounce houses, you know?

We grilled up hamburgers and hot dogs and had all sorts of picnic-y sides like pasta salad and chips.

We invited our families and church family and just spent a few hours enjoying everyone’s company, agreeing on how fast Sadie’s first year went, and watched her eat cake and open gifts.

It was such a special day that I’m going to cherish forever. Writing this post has me smiling all over again when I think about what an amazing day it was ❤
