Sweet Shabby Chic 1st Birthday Party

I just love when I get to share a party from right here in Tennessee (and photographed by the talented Mandy Whitley Photography). This 1st birthday for darling Nora was held very near Nashville in Lebanon! Nora turned 1 in style with a shabby chic pink and mint green birthday party with lots of adorable details and embellishments. Take a look…
