We did it! We have a ONE year old. How is that even possible? Wasn’t I just waddling around and mowing the lawn at 38 weeks pregnant only to go into labor the same night? Abrielle took her first steps at 10 1/2 months and hasn’t stopped going since! She is the sweetest and most fun little girl who we just love to pieces. Having a baby has definitely challenged my multi-tasking abilities and OCD ways, but I am still 100% Type A. I began planning her party MONTHS ago and always knew it would be dog-themed. Many of you know I met my husband at a local dog park and he proposed back at the same park. Our dogs were even in our wedding, so it only seemed fitting that Abrielle would have a paw-ty and did I mention the event actually fell on National Dog Day??!
I have to also give a HUGE thank you to my dear friend Brie of Wake & Bake. She created the most amazing custom smash cakes, guest cake, pup-cakes and milestone chalkboard sign. Without her I probably would have lost my sanity and the entire party wouldn’t have been nearly as cute. Definitely go check out her work and tell her I sent you! Thank you also to Perlilla Pets for the super sweet custom cake topper. She also made our Schnauzer and Vizsla matching wedding cake toppers which you can see here.
I had such a blast channeling my creative side and bringing the “adopt a puppy” station to life, making the various menu signs, planning the food and creating her custom high chair tutu skirt. Enjoy the photos!
