Glass Jars and Fireflies

I wanted to show you a little more of Mia's 1st Birthday party we had for her.  Nel just moved back home, had to clean and organize her house, and get ready for a party in just a few weeks.
 
As I mentioned earlier, the party theme was
The Princess and the Frog.
Mia's dress was sweet.
 
 
Francesca had her party dress on too.
 
 
I have to tell you about these table centerpieces, cause Jess made them.   She got the idea from Pinterest.  The movie takes place in the Louisiana Bayou, so Jess got some glass mason jars and filled them with moss and flowers.   She used tea lights to make it look like fireflies.  Jess was getting a bit frustrated making them cause the tea lights were hard to fit in with the moss, but she managed to finish and created 10, one for each table.
 
 
Nel decorated the high chair for Mia
when it was time to sing.
 
 
The cake was whimsical and Yummy,
 
 
and Mia had a small cake just for herself.
 
 
Nel had a kiddie pool for the kids,
which was a great idea, cause they loved it.
 
 
Can you believe Francesca is already
taking swimming lessons?
 

Mia was all tuckered out at the end of the day.


 
It was a nice party,
and glad grandma was there to
share the special day.

Such a precious post. Those mason jars turned out so pretty! Such a delicious looking cake, too. Mia and Francesca are darling and I know you enjoyed this special occasion with family. xo

Sheri, All that sweetness is adorable. I love the dresses. That firefly idea is wonderful, love it. Blessings to you young gramma. xoxo, Susie

I am so glad you could be there, too. They are only little once. Savor every moment of it. Not that they are not still your babies, no matter how old they be. Lorelei just laughs when we call her the baby, and truthfully, I think she always will. I mostly do it in teasing but Papaw sometimes still forgets.

Their dresses are adorable and the cake is beautiful...but the girls take the prize for cuteness!

Two granddaughters. So sweet. Their skin so sweet and new and fresh - right? Glad you got to go to the party. Sometime I wish I had a cake of my own. I like the pool party idea. Both girls dresses were gorgeous. I love the candles in the moss to be fireflies - I am going to remember that idea. Sandie

Happy Bday to that sweet little one. Wow, seems like yesterday that you were announcing a baby to come! They grow way to fast. Everleigh was born July 17, so it will be great that she finally gets to go home....which will be TODAY! Beautiful party for baby Mia. Dresses are adorable and I love the fairy jar.

Hi, found my way here via Laurel Wood! What lovely photos and decorations. The Princess and the Frog was one of our favorite Disney movies as we live about an hour outside of New Orleans.

Jeanie said...

It looks like she's an early walker -- and a gorgeous one, too! I love all Nel's party ideas. She does such a terrific job with it all! What a great day.
