{Real Parties} Sock Monkey 1st Birthday Party!

Share To:

Sarah from Life {Sweet} Life has been a follower of The TomKat Studio from nearly the beginning. When I first *met* her online, I started following her journey of adopting a child. Her and her husband were told that they couldn’t conceive and we’re hoping and praying for a baby. Fast forward about a year, when I had lost touch with Sarah and stumbled upon her blog again. You can imagine my joy when the first thing I saw was a picture of her with a big belly! {Read more about Sarah’s journey here} Now, fast forward another year and Sarah not only is a beautiful mother but an amazingly creative one at that! I have watched her creativity and photography skills flourish and I am excited to share her son, Manny’s 1st birthday party with you. Sarah did such a beautiful job on this party, celebrating her little miracle! Enjoy!

Sarah used our free mini cake bunting for Manny’s smash cake {so cute}! I also love banner she made with Manny’s photo.

Beautiful job, Sarah! Thank you so much for sharing with us!

    Love Sarah’s blog and her creativity for Manny’s party. I recently found her blog while I was looking for inspiration for my girls’ upcoming joint b-day party. I’m now a regular! Love your blog too and have for some time. Thanks for so many great ideas!
