Eden Jade Turns 1! | Featured on Style Me Pretty Living

Full disclosure (and if you’ve been following me for awhile, you already know) this is a very belated post!

My sweet mini turned one last June. It was probably one of the most surreal days of my life. I could not believe my baby was one year old and that I had been a parent for a full 365 days!  Nearly, since the day she was born, I knew I wanted to throw a big birthday bash for her. I’m so glad I followed through. It was wonderful to surrounded by the tribe of people who love our little girl and helped us through our first year of parenthood.

For her party, I decided to stick with a fun palette of pinks, peaches and corals, and of course include lots beautiful florals. The City Hippy Studio created the invitation based around the monthly photos I took of Eden. Each month I would create the number out of flowers and lay her next to it (you can see each monthly photo here). I loved how the invitation and all the other signage for the party turned out.

Puj baby was gracious enough to use their retail space as our venue. The concrete floors and white walls created a perfect backdrop to the bright colors.

Something Borrowed provided the beautiful furniture for the lounge area. Pink chairs, cream sofa, and fun throw pillows created a cozy area for guests to hang out.

Since the party was late morning, we decided to have brunch! Fresh fruit, cheese, crackers, yogurt bar, mimosa’s and bloody mary’s were all DIY by my family. Little Red’s Bakeshop provided yummy pastries, the smash cake, and the sugar cookies that we gave out as favors. Dessert for the guests were Coco Donuts.

The floral arrangements had a mix of some of my favorite blooms: Peonies, dahlias, garden roses, and cosmos to name a few.

I loved this “stats sign” Jena from The City Hippy Studio made. It makes the perfect keepsake!

Obviously, extremely biased, but she’s just the BEST!

It had been a warm spring, so at the end of June Portland had both locally grown peonies and dahlias! What?!?

12 Months of Eden Jade

My sweet Eden girl,

It’s hard to believe you have been in my life for 1 whole year. I can barely remember life before you. You bring so much joy to my life and I’m so thankful God has chosen me to love you, care for you, teach you, and protect you. Being your mom will always be my greatest joy and the best job I could ever have.

I want to thank you for the many ways you have impacted my life just in your first year of life. Because of you…

  • I am a better person.
  • I am challenged every single day.
  • I’m learning to go through life slower, and soak in the little moments.
  • I will never take sleep for granted 😉
  • I have different priorities and goals.
  • I am quickly learning, I can’t control everything.
  • I try to pray more and worry less.
  • I better understand how much my parents, grandparents, and Jesus love me.
  • I love and respect your dad more than ever.
  • I am the happiest I’ve ever been.
  • I am a mom. Something I’ve always wanted to be.

Watching you grow this year has been amazing, eye opening, and made me so so proud! I pray that God will help your dad and I raise you according to His Word and that you will be a strong, confident, God-fearing lady.

Love you forever,

Mommy
