Hard to believe it has been an entire year since little Madeleine was born.
And just slightly before that, we hosted her baby shower.
If you haven’t read these stories yet…please do, it’s a pretty good read.
See you at the birthday party…..
Party hosted by the proud parents, decor provided by your Cavender boys (with a little help from Walton Design)
The Birthday girl (in her splendiferous gnome outfit) spent a good part of the party blowing bubbles in the yard.
With the help of her “Gunkle James”.
She took some time out from bubble blowing to smash an entire birthday cake into her mouth.
(Bet she poops red food coloring for a week)
The drink of the day was “Swamp Punch” served in mason jars with the perfect straw-sized hole punched in the lid.
Here’s that happy gnome family,
…and a few of their friends,
At the end of the afternoon, everyone went home with home-made s’mores…..
Perfect ending to a perfect day,
Happy First Birthday Madeleine……
Everybody, all together now! Awwwwwwwwwwww!
Perfection! What a completely blessed little girl! Happy Birthday indeed, Madeleine!!! So lucky to have these two fantastic men as your uncles!!
Oh my goodness! Thought it couldn’t get any better until I saw the birthday girl dressed like a gnome, the swamp punch, and the stand-ins! Too cute!!
What a gift you gave her..she is precious and it looks like the grown-ups had as much fun as the children…Great memory….for her and you!!!
Happy birthday, Madeline! What a fantastically, fairy gnome day!! You are a little darling wonderland, sweet one! Hello to your mommy& daddy and proud “uncles!” Love the pix!
Oh my god, I LOVE this! You had me at the gnome on the invite. Such a creative party idea.

I am so inspired by your garage redo and I adore how you use red and all the personal details in your home. I grew up in dallas. When I met my husband he lived in a cute little duplex in Lakewood. I loved that neighborhood so much. You have been bookmarked! Look forward to reading all your posts!
Hi Beth! You are so sweet! I lived in Lakewood years ago, by Casa Linda. Still have friends over there ……. Miss that neighborhood so much. Soo glad that you found us….

Do you have a tutorial on how to make the cupcake stand? I LOVE that idea and want one for my sons birthday party.
Hi Brittany, It was pretty simple. I bought the flat pieces of tree sections at Michael’s and hot glued them to tin cans for height. Ohhh, I did wrap the cans in jute twine to hide them a little. Couldn’t be easier.
