When Life Gives You Lemons...

When I woke up Saturday morning, I felt like it was raining on my wedding day. It was Mason’s BIG Splish Splash First Birthday Party and well, it was a-splish-splashin’ alright, as the rain drops were the size of golf balls falling from the sky. But the slogan of the day quickly became “When life gives you lemons (or in this case torrential downpours), put the lemonade station on the screen porch!” Thanks to our lovely friends downstairs we were still able to host 50-60 guests for Mason’s birthday despite the terribly terrible weather. The laughter of family & friends as well as blue and green décor prevailed over the gray skies--tissue pom’s, goggle-man centerpieces, goldfish, lemonade/ice tea station (drinking from Mason Jars!) cupcakes in ice cream cones and hamburgers and hotdogs… it almost made you forget you were inside!

  1. What are you??!? A model AND a professional photographer? The photos perfectly represent the absolutely stunning job you did... As for my first post about what I did as a full time mom... It's going to be called "how to eat nearly an entire pan of delish brownies by yourself." :)

  2. beautiful party!! I love the Mason jars!! This looks like the perfect way to celebrate your little man's first year of life! :)
