Our Little Mermaid is One!

This little mermaid turned one and had her first under the sea birthday party! We had our friends and family over at my parents’ house to celebrate with a pool party since this little girl loves the water so much! Of course there are tons of pictures that I had to share with y’all!

I made her sign above using my Cricut and a chalkboard marker on an old picture frame with black chalkboard paper backing that we found at Target!
Cupcakes were from my go to cupcakery in Houston…Crave! I’m kind of obsessed with them.
My mother-in-law made the cross stich artwork and daddy/daughter photo frame in the picture below. They were the perfect addition to the mantel décor, and they’re even more perfect in our home!

Chloe had so much fun at her party! She got to play at her new water table and see so many people. I’m surprised she wasn’t more overwhelmed. I mean, it’s got to be weird constantly being the center of attention and just coming up to everyone’s knees. But then again, when isn’t she the center of attention. Plus she’s used to crowds at this point in her life. Part of having a big family and grandparents’ and parents’ that like to have people over and throw parties!

Chloe and Harper LOVED playing at the water table and eating ALL of the fruit. They shared a plate and it was adorable!

The whole party was a team effort. My dad and JP grilled fajitas. JP’s parents’ made queso and a white cheese and avocado dip. Matt made guacamole. Meena made salsa. My mom made rice and beans. Auntie Annie bought the plates, napkins, plastic ware and some decorations! They say it takes a village to raise a baby and that couldn’t be more true. We are so thankful and blessed to have such amazing family and friends that are part of our lives. Chloe has some wonderful role models to say the least!

I forgot to get pictures of our awesome food set up, but we did get some of our friends enjoying it!

We had a blast swimming! I mean, who doesn’t love swimming in almost 100 degree Houston summer heat?

We had to get a picture of Chloe and her best girlfriends! We’re so lucky to have these women and their daughters close by!

While everyone else was helping with the food, I was busy making Chloe’s smash cake! I was going order one for her, but I decided to make it instead. I’m so glad I did. I saved a ton of money and it was actually fun to make! I made it two tiers, one pink and one purple with pink and purple icing! I was pretty impressed with the final product.

Chloe loved her cake as always! This girl has a serious sweet tooth.

She also loved opening her presents! She was definitely spoiled rotten. We have so many toys that I don’t know what to do with all of them!

It was an amazing turn out. I’m still in shock that my baby is one. This past year has flown by so fast. I can’t wait to see what the future has in store for our family!
