My little Marielle turned one year old last Sunday, January 4th. It was truly beautiful, mostly because she was surrounded by her family who loves her so much. Everyone gathered to celebrate this little girl and her one year milestone. I was a bit worried about her January birthday, because what in the world do you do on the coldest month of the year? As a child, my siblings and I all had summer/early fall birthdays so pool parties were usually the theme. But January…man, there are not a lot of options! Luckily there is Pinterest for that now, which can make you feel incredibly creative 🙂 I figured the winter theme was perfect and how cute is the word play on wonderland? I had visions of glittery tulle, snowflake decor, a yummy hot cocoa bar and warm soup. Perfect! Admittedly, I’ve been planning her theme for months. The details didn’t take shape until closer to the day. I wanted to keep it simple, and keep it to just family as not to overwhelm our little one. The menu was easy. I had the hot cocoa bar for guests as they arrived, dinner was a slow cooker tomato basil soup, cheese fondue, and a veggie tray. Simple, warm and filling! The decor was pretty simple as well…glittery tulle covered the tables, pink and gray balloons, a photo banner of her past 12 months, flowers, snowflakes and a wish tree. I’ve shared some photos below that show the details of her big day! Marielle is truly a lucky girl. She had a wonderful 1st birthday surrounded by grandparents, cousins, aunties and uncles and of course, her adoring parents.
