I had to share this birthday party with all of you. This adorable little girl belongs to Jussi, a friend of both of my sisters. My sisters had stopped by my house after the party and I was ooohing and ahhing over the cuteness. So, I begged Jussi to let me show off her sweet little girl. Jussi was at my wedding 12 years ago. I was tempted to post a picture of her from it, but decided I would be nice since she is so kindly letting me post about her little one.
Let’s start with her name. Ruby Mae. Does it get any cuter than that? ‘Ruby’ was Jussi’s husband’s great great aunt who passed away last May. And ‘Mae’ was Jussi’s great aunt that she was very close to. She passed away two years ago this month. I think it’s very precious that she is carrying on their names.
The pictures in this post were taken by Jussi’s friends.
You will love the way Jussi decorated for Ruby’s 1st birthday. The burlap ‘ONE’ in front of her high chair and the banner for her cake (see above) make it so unique. And the tied fabric on the back of the high chair completes it.
Look at those gorgeous tables.
She strung pictures on the fence of Ruby’s first year.
The frame below was hung from a tree in between the tables. The pictures are of both Ruby and Mae who she was named after. Adorable.
She set up a photo both with props. Love.
Those pretty girls on each end are my sisters.
That is Jussi on the left with Ruby, Ruby’s Aunt and Grandma.
Seriously. Stop. The. Cuteness.
I think Ruby was quite pleased with her party. Well, at least her cake.
She can’t wait to see what her Mommy has planned for her 2nd birthday.
I can’t wait either.
Happy 1st Birthday Ruby Mae.
