You did it! Moms you know that feeling when you have survived the first year with your new little one through birth, sleepless nights, and constant changing diaper patrol. Congratulations, it is time to celebrate with your friends and family. Here at Blmommy we love sharing 1st Birthday Ideas, because it is a monumental event for both your little one and yourself. You might be the mom to hire a party planner or one who decides to DIY 1st birthday decorations yourself. Either way, Princess Isabella’s 1st birthday party decor will inspire you today.
How has being a mother to your birthday girl changed you as a woman?
I am no longer as vain. Many of the things I once found important are
now meaningless. I strive every day to become a better person, a person that she can
look up to and be proud to call mom.
-What advice do you wish you give a new mom about the first year?
Just *breath* believe in yourself. Follow your instinct, slow down,
and enjoy every second because in a blink of an eye the year will be
over. There’s also no such thing as too many pictures or videos, so
-Tell us a little about your birthday girl?
Isabella is the sweetest little girl you’ll ever meet, and years
beyond herself too! She loves to smile and wave at everyone she sees.
She is vivacious but on occasions very reserved and quietly observes
everything. She is very strong willed and does not hesitate to let her
feelings be known.
-What was the theme and inspiration for your party?
Isabella was our inspiration. She is our princess and what better
theme than a pink and gold Royal 1st Birthday.
-What are some of your must have items for a party?
In our case we needed variety, and given our princess theme, we wanted
-What is one thing you wish you had not included at the party?
No. I planned party for 6 months so everything included was well thought out.
-And one thing you wish you had added to the party?
I wish I had more time to decorate outside. I had a whole box of
decorations leftover because I underestimated how long decorating
outside would take.
-What is one thing you find beautiful about being a mother?
The bond i share with my children.
-What are your beauty must haves as a mommy?
Mascara and concealer because I don’t want to walk around looking as
tired as I feel.
-Words about your photographer?
I met Susy 16 months ago when she took Bella’s newborn pictures. From
the moment, I met her I knew I only wanted her to photograph my
daughter going forward. Susy has a gift for photographing children
like no other photographer I have ever met. She is extremely gentle,
patience and loving. She has a gift for making children relax and
smile. Susy’s passion for photography is what makes her standout and
she has an amazing eye for detail.
Susy is a Las Vegas, on location natural light and studio light
portrait photographer specializing in maternity, newborn, babies and
families. She loves capturing the glowing beauty of a mother-to-be,
cuddling with brand new babies, and documenting important milestones
of a baby’s first year of life. Photography is her passion and she
loves that she gets to call it her job.
