Coco's First Birthday! Lilly Pulitzer and The Beverly Hills Hotel!



Coco's first birthday is fast approaching! I cannot believe she is already turning one! Where has the time gone! I'm scared!

Landon set the bar very high by having his first birthday in Hawaii. We were in Hawaii for brother in laws wedding and it fell on his birthday weekend! We had a party for him on the grassy lawn of a fabulous resort overlooking the ocean. He wore a smocked john john with a froggy and had a frog prince cake! Divine!

Now I know we are in a financial crunch (you too?) but I just have to blow it out a little for my only daughters first birthday.

I had an idea to do a ladies tea for Coco at the Beverly Hills Hotel. No others babies but her, her first ladies tea! The Beverly Hills Hotel is simply the most pink and green place we have here in Los Angeles, fabulous in every way. Besides, I'm in the Preppy Mafia now so I have to really step it up!

At first they tried to tell me how there are only tables of six, how we'd have to sit in the bar...low and behold the catering manager saved the day!

We will have a table in the restaurant, all my girlfriends, sisters and godmothers of Coco and of course darling Coco herself. She will wear Lilly and so will I. I sent out these Lilly Pulitzer invitations!




Now I am working on a cake based on my cabanarama invites. Coco will also have a Minnie Mouse birthday with her Daddy, brother and friends at home. Landon wants cake! I am so happy to celebrate with Miss Coco!!!
