G  turns  ONE

Our shinning star turned one today and I cant hardly believe it! Time flies, but I am SO grateful to God for this AMAZING year!

I celebrated G's bday a few weeks back. I was really set on a specific location which was only available for the beginning of the month. So, I figured an easy solution to the problem - we will party all month long!

It was a shabby chic royals theme (kings & queens). The idea came from the gold crowns; and since I knew I wanted G to wear one, I decided to give them as favors for the girls too. I know you're thinking, "What about the boys?" That's easy - swords! So the royals theme was a success!

It was tons of work with all the DIY projects, but so worth it! With the help of my amazing talented sister (Arlhin), Michelle and my wonderful hubby we were able to make it ALL possible. So thankful to Amy Roman for helping us set up and bring this dream to life! (incredible hands on party planner)

Last but not least my amazing friend Daisy from
