Sienna's Boho Butterfly Birthday Party

Hi guys! Geez, that title is quite a mouthful but it's been the best way to describe what I was going for for Sienna's first birthday. It's probably the only year I'll get to decide so I ran with it. We celebrated her actual birthday in North Carolina last month but when we came back home, we decided to throw a super last minute party for her with our families. Cue me panicking because I had about a week to order supplies, a cake and get it all together.

This year I realized that as much as I love a good #PinterestParty, no one really needs one, y'know? Three things really took this party to the next level - and they were all under $50!

Save Water, Wear Pact Dream Big Pajamas!

I received this product for free from Moms Meet ( to use and post my honest opinions. Compensation for this post was provided and this page may contain affiliate links.

It's officially summer break and we are all about that jammie life over here! The connoisseurs of cozy, if you will. There's just something about hoppin' into some warm jammies and settling in for the night with a fun book that both myself and my kids love doing.

That's why we're big fans of these Pact Dream Big Pajamas! Not only are they made of organic cotton, they're Fair Trade certified and super, duper soft.

Cinco de Mayo Fiesta

Happy Cinco de Mayo! Alright, alright. It's not. But I wish it was! I wasn't going to post our  celebration but I thought this might be a great thing to save now and check out next year. 

DID YOU KNOW?: Cinco de Mayo ("Fifth of May") is a holiday celebrating the Mexican victory over the French in the Battle of Puebla in 1862. In fact, the Mexican army was the underdog, as the French army was well-equipped with a troop of 6,000 compared to Mexico's 2,000 but they prevailed. It's actually a pretty minor celebration in Mexico, but here in the US, we take the day to celebrate the Mexican culture, thanks to President Franklin Roosevelt creating the "Good Neighbor Policy" in 1933 to strengthen our relations with Latin-American countries.
