Happiest First Birthday, Miko!
Miko turned ONE today and I'll spare you the emotional mess I am and get straight to the celebration.
We wanted something small and not spend much but we still wanted something. With a few clicks on Pinterest, I found a few ideas and thankfully we stuck to our budget and our little theme.
Her cake is gluten-free, dairy-free, sugar-free, egg-free, and allergy friendly. It sounds fun-free but she's going to have all her life to eat that stuff, I didn't want to introduce it just yet for allergy precautions. I found the recipe here for the cake and the frosting, and I added beet juice for the punch of pink. She loved it!
Her Bambi dress is from the Disney store, which we got last year. The hanging floral vine, and faux peonies are both from Amazon. The Miko banner was from a friend who sent it as a newborn gift and I've held on to it since (thank you Angela!) , and the crown was also a gift for Miko from a friend (thank you Janelle!) and the etsy shop is Fox and Willow. Her bow is from Baby Bling. I almost forgot to mention! Her tulle high-chair skirt is from Amazon, too.
Ok, so maybe I'll get a little messy on this post- this year has been an adventure I thought I never wanted. Miko made me softer and stronger all at once and it's been a joy shaping her and watching her grow. Happy Birthday, Miko!
