Carsyn Grace- The Very Hungry Caterpillar First Birthday

Yes, I know it’s June. Yes, my daughter’s birthday is January 24th.. HAHA. I wanted to update my blog with all my old sessions. Even though this isn’t “technically” a session, I thought it would be nice to show off =) I have so many people ask me about the details of Carsyns Birthday.  I have even had people I don’t know e-mail me or message me about her party details.. I was even featured on “Catch My Party“. TOTALLY AWESOME!! Well… here are ALL the goodies!!


I knew I wanted Carsyn’s 1st Birthday party to be special. I really didn’t want princess or any of the “normal” girl’s 1st birthday stuff. When I found The Very Hungry Caterpillar on Pinterest. I FELL IN LOVE! It’s a CLASSIC. I knew it would be totally easy and inexpensive. And indeed it was. Not only easy and in inexpensive, it was TOTALLY HEALTHY! (minus the cake and treats).  Here are some images of the big day!
