harper's first birthday celebration was perfectly simple. first stop: cronut doughnut cake to put us all in a sugar-coma! once she tasted her first bite of the deliciousness, she was all smiles. garrison + i enjoyed reflecting on the past year as parents, which is really the best thing to ever happen to us.
after breakfast, we walked around main street snapping a few photos. i'm so glad we did, because some of these are my new favorites! harper wore her fanciest dress + absolutely loved having a giant balloon follow her around all day.
that afternoon, we met at a friend's house for a play date and to eat cake. harper's smash cake was a naturally sweetened banana cake with cherry yogurt instead of frosting and topped with banana slices. she loved the yogurt and had fun making a mess. luckily garrison was in charge of getting her cleaned up afterward!
^ coconut lemon curd cake for the adults, #1 brownie for the kids
^ "pin the party hat on baby harper" was a hit with the older kids. idea from say yes
^ since it wasn't at our house due to the upcoming move, i kept the decor very simple. photos printed through snapbox
^ it was fun walking around the neighborhood with the balloon the next day!
