Turning Two: Looking back at Everly’s Vellum Eucalyptus First Birthday Party Invitations
I cannot believe that I’m writing this, but my baby girl turned TWO last weekend!
(blurry photos & gym clothes…real life with kiddos!)
While the days are long, the years really are so incredibly short. The past two years have been a complete whirlwind, and I know it’s true that the older they get, the faster the days pass. I remember thinking as I sat and nursed Everly every single day for an entire year that this day would never come. I thought she would need me forever. I shouldn’t have been so silly, after all I went through this whole thing with Emerson. But when you are in the trenches with a baby, the endless nursings, the awful catnaps, and the deprived sleep, you think it’s never going to end. You don’t see the light. You don’t see the small changes every day. You foolishly forget that they grow up on you. Every single day they become a little bit less dependent, a little bit smarter, also a lot more challenging 🙂 Always on the go, always getting into something, always challenging patience.
Since I had so much fun designing Everly’s first birthday invitations that were featured on Oh So Beautiful Paper, (seriously, my work was featured on Oh So Beautiful Paper?! Pinch.Me.), I thought I would take a stroll down memory lane and share them again with you all. How I LOVE how her birthday invitations turned out, with the pretty eucalyptus vellum wrap and gold-leafed embossed hang tag…the prettiest of details <3
Her birthday party mimicked the invitations perfectly, from eucalyptus table runners, coordinating placements, and of course a naked smash cake! You don’t want to miss these cute details, click this link if you’d like to see pictures from Everly’s first birthday party! Oh how itty bitty she was <3
