On to Baby is now The Little Umbrella! More info ➡

Alek's love of swimming and being in the water inspired the theme for this adorable blue and orange goldfish themed party. Organizing and preparing the party was a labor of love for his mom Melita, who spent many late nights putting together the favor tags, labeling bottles, gluing napkin holders together, creating the straw flags, and so forth. She painted the letters for the O-N-E letters several times, just to get the color just right! So sweet! Melita used Etsy as a great resource to complete the whole picture (be sure to check out the full list of Etsy shops at the bottom of this post!). Mimi Nguyen captured all of the lovely photos of the event, and you can see more in the full gallery.

love this so much! I'm just in the process of planning my son's first birthday in March, so I know how much time and effort it takes. As a 1st birthday and a new mom you just want everything to be so perfect, and this momma did such a great job!
