turns 1! + Free Birthday Printables

1st birthday party pizzazzerie

Pizzazzerie Turns 1

WHAT A YEAR! This time one year ago, I was attempting to put together my first post (and I’m thankful they’ve improved over the year :). What a journey it has been. Thank you to everyone who comes here every day or even if this is your first time visiting this site, THANK YOU because it is you who allows me to continue to do what I love every day.

Enjoy these pictures from a special 1st birthday shoot with a gorgeous glittered banner by Icing Designs and Birthday printables by Love the Day! I met the talented women behind Icing Designs and Love the Day while in New York City in January for the Martha Stewart Event.




Everyone needs a little mascot right? We originally found him for an Easter shoot but thought he was just too perfect not to use here too!

There are place cards, gift tags, drink flags, labels, etc! Lindi of Love The Day did such an outstanding job designing them – I couldn’t have asked for anything more amazing to help celebrate our birthday!

Special thanks to my fabulous team (Katie, Crista, Phronsie, Kelly, and Sarah Kate) who are there every day to help improve the site, create fabulous content, and spread the word about entertaining in style! Thank you to Kristen Steele Photography for capturing so many of my designs. And thank you to Matt of Proof Branding for helping me get going and launch!
