This past weekend was my niece's 5th Birthday, and I couldn't believe how quickly time had passed. I also couldn't help but to reminisce at all her little birthday parties that have been so carefully planned by my sister and I, and wonder if she will ever remember any of them! {Probably not} So far, the one that will stand out most in my mind is her 1st birthday party.  I'm a firm believer that you don't have to spend a lot of money to put together something that's beautiful and memorable, and I wanted to share a few of our ideas with you! I hope the images will inspire you to create something beautiful and budget friendly. 

Sign in pages for guests were added to a scrapbook 
my sister had been creating for her First year

 Matching china was found at the local Marshalls & TJ Maxx
The basket for cutlery was found at your local Michael's
To add an elegant touch purchase a beautiful frame
and create a Menu on your computer

You don't have to purchase an expensive fancy fondant cake.
Have your local baker add a monogram to a simple
butter cream cake.
