Let the Planning Begin!

Without leaps of imagination, or dreaming, we lose the excitement of possibilities. Dreaming, after all, is a form of planning.  – Gloria Steinem

With Baby H’s first birthday approaching, I have started planning his first birthday celebration.  With that in mind, I began the hunt for a venue, decorations, favors and all things birthday.  In my search, I ran across Shop Sweeet Lulu and discovered that they have the cutest party supplies ever!  There was an awesome Cyber Monday sale that took place and I HAD to take advantage of the sale.  To my delightful surprise, within days of ordering, my package of goodies arrived (shown above)!!

I cannot wait to use the supplies at the party.  I still haven’t decided exactly how I’m going to use all the items but I will definitely keep you updated with this process.  So far we’ve got the venue booked – a cute little Thai restaurant; favors and party supplies courtesy of Shop Sweeet Lulu and an invitation set found at my local Homesense.  There are still a few ideas floating in my head but that’s the fun stuff I get ponder over.

Right now, the biggest challenge we have is narrowing down our guest list.  We were trying to keep this a small intimate affair BUT, it’s proving to be just the opposite.  Our closest family and friends have their growing families too and we just cannot avoid the larger number of invitees.  DH and I have to sit down and figure this out soon because we should be sending out the invitations within the next few weeks.

In the meantime, I’ve got more internet surfing to do on my favorite event planning sites!  Off to lala land I go… =)
