la petite boulangerie...

"la petite boulangerie" (which translates into "small bakery") officially opened and closed...all in one day.

yep...ella's first birthday party has come and gone...
the mini french bakery themed party was a success!
officially 3 days have passed since the monumental day!
and let me tell you...

it turned out to be SUCH a great day.
not just for me...having all of these birthday visions i've had in my head for months finally come together.

but for little ella pie.
she was surrounded by beautiful petite pastries...
...and more importantly, she was surrounded by people who love her.

wanna see how it turned out?
close your eyes....
don't peek...
ok...
now open your eyes...

i could not have done it (and enjoyed the process) without the help of my family:
clara, ema, j, grandma angelotti, grandpa & grandma schnapp


so to all of you...and by all of you i mean the family that helped, lynn @ sweet things emporium that baked, the inspiration from tomkat studios, amy atlas, martha stewart, & lollipop workshop for various elements of the party, the friends that celebrated with us and to all of you who've followed along as i've planned, organized and posted progress...
