Thinking Ahead and Loving Pinterest

Okay, so I know I'm a planner but this might be a little much even for me. I'm already thinking about Lila's first birthday party and she's not even 5 months old! I don't even know if she's going to have much more than just a family birthday either. But regardless, it's fun to gather ideas and think about it.

Pinterest is great for gathering ideas for tons of stuff, but I especially see its utility in planning kids parties, baby showers and weddings. I also love it for ideas for future photo sessions for Lila. Follow me on Pinterest! Maybe I'll keep up with it more that way!

If I were truly planning Lila's 1st birthday today I think I'd do kind of a vintage-y theme. Her room is so bright and most of her clothes are vibrant too, so I think a party with softer colors would be a fun change.

Here are some of my recent pins for ideas for her 1st birthday:

I love collecting pretties and planning ahead! It's so much fun (and addicting)!


  1. I LOVE it!! And thanks to pinterest I am already planning A's party to and she is only 5 months old:)

  2. I ADORE all of these pins. B's first birthday was Candy Land but this time I want something simple and sweet :)

  3. There is nothing wrong with planning ahead, especially a party!
