Poppy turns 1!

I got ridiculously swept up in the chaos of trying to finish two online courses over the month of September and gave this wonderful little lady's birthday party pics to her momma without posting a little something on the blog! 

Poppy's first birthday party was, without a doubt, one of the cutest "soirees" that I've been to. Jess, her mom, had originally planned on having the party at a park BUT, as fate would have it, the forecast was for rain... and a lot of it. So, like a supermom, she whipped up a new plan - the party was held in the common room of their townhouse complex. The theme was "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star" and it was, truly, a glittery event :)

We took some family photos before the guests arrived just in a little park area near their house - Poppy thought I was quite a suspicious character with my camera. She wasn't quite sure why I kept following them around...

And then, PARTY TIME! 
Friends and family started to file in. The love that these people had (have) for Poppy and her parents was so very evident. Grandparents and great-grandparents were gushing over the sweet little birthday girl. Little friends toddled about, playing with the props bucket and eyeing the sweets. Old friends and fellow new-parents chatted and laughed. It was a lovely celebration!

But my FAVOURITE part? Cake smash. Not hard to see why...

Happy 1st Birthday, sweet Poppy! Thanks for letting me join in on the party :)
