Fin's Circus Soiree

what a perfect day.
family, friends, food and my baby turning one. 
I must say I can't help myself when it comes to parties.
I tend to go all out and boy did we go all out for Fin's first birthday.
face painting, bubbles, a bounce house, balloon animals, clown noses
and lots of sugar.

I couldn't help but reminisce about Genevieve's first birthday.  My how time is flying.


I made the balloon banner using this tutorial
it wasn't hard but tedious and time consuming.
Joe and I blew up 72 balloons.  We both had major headaches afterwards.





my sweet neighbor, Laura made all the desserts: cake, cupcakes and cookies
they were so yummy.


and what circus is complete without popcorn and cotton candy




Genevieve was the "ringmaster" 






face painting was done by the amazing: athena




grammy and grandad






















there is just something magical about bubbles




I made my headband using this tutorial



we had about 60 of our good friends and family come and help us celebrate Finley's first year of life
here is just a few of them...




Happy Birthday Finley James.
We love you.
