Celebrating Gwen's 1st Birthday ~ Interstate Style

Thursday, July 29, 2021

Gwen is one! I can't even believe it (insert ugly crying face). We spent Sunday celebrating our sweet girl with a pretty Swan Soiree party and our family and friends. It's amazing how time feels like it's moving so slow (thank you COVID-19), and at the same time feels like it's flying by so fast. Gwen has baby rolls for days that we can't get enough of, and her personality is just the best. She's always smiling and laughing and has brought us so much joy over the past 12 months.

Having had a baby during the pandemic, and having not seen very many people for so many months, this birthday felt like it should be even more special. My only little girl was turning one, and we were able to spend it with our favorite people after a long hard year. I wanted to go ALL OUT with decorations, and hey, birthdays only come once a year, right? Everyone deserves a fantastic party! I was thrilled when I found Big Dot of Happiness. They offers designer party collections that make it easy for anyone to truly be a party-throwing hero. 

Being Gwen's first birthday, I was looking forward to getting some beautiful photos. With the Swan Soiree design party party decor, I was able to create and capture those precious goose bump moments, making memories that will last a lifetime. 

The kids all loved the gable favor boxes I filled with candy,  and playing with the photo booth props. The photo booth props come in a pack of 20 with masks, mustaches, comment signs and more. They probably had more funning sifting through the options and picking than they did taking the pictures, haha. Oh, and don't worry, a photo booth isn't required to create some super cute moments with these props!

Some of my personal favorites in the party pack were the Happy Birthday banner, which was really great quality and super easy to string together and also the table toppers. I love that these can be used with the wood dowels provided to put into a vase or tape wherever you'd like. I picked up a few blush vases that were a dollar at the grocery store, tied the vases with blush tulle and it felt so fancy. 

I chose to compliment the decor with matching swan cookies and cakes, added a few balloons, and I was all ready for the party. 

Little kids birthday parties are the best! Big Dot of Happiness made it so easy to create unforgettable moments with stunning decor. If you're planning a party, Big Dot of Happiness has dozens of unique themes. A couple favorites of my other favorites I have in mind for next year are the sharks for Winston and mermaids for Gwen. There really are so many cute options, it's hard to choose. You're sure to find something for your birthday star! 

Thank you Big Dot of Happiness for sponsoring this post. All opinions are my own.
