 here is lula mae...she's a beauty, and now, she's one!
lula's mom and dad, sarah and jay, threw her an adorable french inspired first birthday party.

sarah, always the creative inspiration for me, came up with so many sweet details that made this party special.

she created an image of her daughter, ordered custom material from spoonflower, and sewed these special bibs for each party attendant. she distinguished lula's bib by adding a pom pom binding to the edge. each guest got to take his/her home.

  she also made these adorable party hats.

the party table had a basket of beach balls and bubbles for the kids, and a simple, beautiful and delicious cake.  every bit of the food sarah made came from barefoot contessa, my absolute favorite chef!

other details included a custom banner that said, "bon anniversaire," which is of course happy birthday in french.  it laid atop a petticoat skirt that sarah turned into a whimsical chandelier.
sarah decoupaged a small piece of her custom fabric to a cut of cardstock, then glued decorative string into the shape of "bon anniversaire lula" for a custom first birthday card.

here's to lula's first birthday and sarah's creativity!
