Ryleigh’s 1st Birthday @ With A Pinch Of Salt! (Party Part 1)

*Image heavy*

Wow, Time literally fly by.
Ryleigh turned ONE last month!DSC01527

Now that I looked back, that helpless baby a year ago is now able to stand, walk, make gestures and understanding basic stuff like ‘yes, no, gai gai, papa, mama’.
O.M.G. My baby is not so little anymore, soon she’ll be able to talk back at me.
You know uh, I see so much of me in her, I could pictured an argument with “myself” in the near future. *headache*

We celebrated her birthday at With A Pinch Of Salt,(I’ll talk about my venue choices in a separate post).
Ry was having a ball of a time even though she was really tired and didn’t really nap much. She enjoys being in the limelight, what an extrovert!

Ryleigh’s birthday Mascot is Dolphins. Lots and lots of them!
Usually kids at 1 year old don’t really know what they like, so parents will sorta decide for them with regards to the birthday theme.

But we didn’t want that to happen, we wanted something relatable, probably something she’ll see in her daily life.

And so her damn super stinko Dolphine came to mind.
This, is her most precious possession.
IMG_9626Like catnip to feline, this huge roll of ‘cocaine’ keeps her really high whenever she see it.

Dolphins it is.

Props and deco all by With A Pinch Of Salt.
I paid additional $250 for a dessert table, you just need to tell them your theme and With A Pinch Of Salt will take care of the rest.DSC01571DSC01567 DSC01531 DSC01529

Trying to call the late comers.

Ry has just mastered walking, so all she does is walk around like.a.little penguin BOSS.

Hello mama, I look up to you (punny).DSC01552 DSC01550

My hb said Ry takes after my notty expression.

Even though the Venue looks awesome, the food choices wasn’t very attractive. It was a little lack in the presentation.
