Happy 1st Birthday, Clara!

Clara’s 1st birthday party was more than I could have ever wished for. Family, friends, good food and music.

Some of my favorite event vendors made it even more special.
Children’s Music Entertainment: Music, Stars and Masters
Flowers: Val Eule, Just Flowers
Catering and Cupcakes: Lisa Feinstein, Provisions
Birthday Cake: Vanilla Bake Shop
Rentals: Pico Party Rentals
Favors, Bubbles, Blow-up Animals and Guitars: Oriental Trading Company
Cake Topper, Disposables, Decor: Party City

One of the reasons that I have hesitated posting this on the blog is because Maddie Spohr, daughter of Heather and Mike (Next Exit wedding clients and friends), passed away somewhat unexpectedly 2 days after the birthday party. Our hearts have been filled with sorrow since the passing of this perfect little 17 month old girl. Mike and Heather both told me at the funeral how they were glad that Maddie had so much fun at the party before the tragic day.

To read all about Maddie’s story read here. Mom Heather is a famous mom blogger and is followed by other moms around the globe.

To donate money to the March of Dimes, in honor of Maddie, as their friends and family march on April 25th, go here.

Miss Maddie, we love you.
