I can't even believe it's time to think about Brendan's first birthday. When people tell you the first year flies by, you think it won't happen to you! I blinked and now by child is almost one year old - it's insane. I could not decide on a theme (newsies, whales, bees - I thought of it all and nothing seemed right). Finally, I saw a really tastefully done nautical birthday on 6th Street, and thought - YES! That's it - nautical. Now it's time to plan and I found some inspiring images to help guide my party planning purchases.
