Like most first-time moms, I obsessed over my little one’s first birthday for months. I diligently scoured the internet for party ideas and pinned the ones I liked. I was dead set on making the party as fabulous as I could despite a modest budget. But just a month before the big day, several aspects of my party plan fell through and I had to scratch a number of items off my list. And now that it’s less than a week away, I’m holding my breath hoping nothing major’s going to go awry.
