Eli's first birthday was everything I wanted it to be. It was a wonderful day of fellowship with our close friends and family. We did a nautical/sailboat theme and I thought it turned out perfect! We cooked hot dogs, watched him eat his smash cake and swam in the pool. The rain held off for his party, thank goodness! Our sweet friend, Jenny, came and took pictures for me so that I could actually enjoy the day without worrying about getting the perfect shot of everything!
I worked for 2 hours on that "life ring" wreath! It turned out super cute!
Red and white yarn wrapped around a styrofoam ring. I hot glued the wooden anchor and hot glued welcome sign to the back. Love the end result! I may remove the welcome sign and use by the pool all summer long!
These were so tedious, but SO cute! Totally worth the time! Life savers, red sharpie and twine! That's it! Super cute!
Hawaiian punch and sweet tea! It's been a long time since I've had sweet tea!!
Fish net with monthly pictures of Eli. I painted wooden sailboats and added ribbon detail. Very tedious, but worth it! Used tiny clothes pins to secure to net.
The Birthday Boy! He had a blast!
My precious niece, Peyton! She loves the water! Love that sweet girl!
Eli and Ezra. They are 3 months apart. Precious :) makes my heart smile!
Very memorable day! This has been the best year of my life...so far!
