Coco had such a wonderful tea party, and this weekend she will have a Minnie Mouse birthday party with some kids from the neighborhood and some of her friends. How cute! she has friends!!!
Coco did already get some meaningful gifts, I thought I would share them with you!
Neighbor Sheila, who wore Lilly to the tea and helped me set up, gave Coco pearls. That's right. Coco has her first set of pearls. I bawled. Can you stand it?
Katie (Landon's besties Mommie and Coco's too!) gave Coco the most gorgeous monogrammed jewelry box from Pottery Barn. So special, for all her baubles!
Godmother Annie gave Coco a gold dipped porcelain tea set she bought at an antique store. She told me she got it for a song because it had a chip on the tea pot (you can hardly see it!) and encouraged me to just let her and Landon play with it! After hyperventilating I agreed and we had a tea party today just the three of us.
My mom, along with helping pay for the tea, sent the biggest box of gifts I've ever seen. Loaded with clothes and a doll, the best part were the HOT PINK PATENT LEATHER DRIVING MOCS. I nearly passed out.
Have you received any memorable first birthday gifts? What were they? Do tell!
If your kids are dying to have a "sleep over" but are too young, try having a pretend one. Invite the friend over and leave the kids with a baby sitter while you and the parents go out for dinner. Let the kids have their sleeping bags and PJ's and go to sleep. When they wake up in the morning asking where their friend is, say they just left!
