WIWW (Scratch That... What the Birthday Girl Wore)

I almost died of cuteness when I dressed baby girl in her rainbow birthday party outfit on Saturday.  
Are you looking at these photos??

Okay, okay. I know... I am biased being her proud mama and all.
But every piece of her adorable outfit came together perfectly.
What is most awesome about her birthday get-up is that it is almost 100% all handmade!

The rainbow tutu was handmade by Laura from Tutoodles Tutus.  She carries a variety of hand tied tulle tutus for children & adults, and can also accommodate your custom order (like my baby girl's gorgeous rainbow birthday tutu!).  We absolutely adored this tutu.  Baby girl pretty much wore it all day, & you could tell she was absolutely smitten with it.  It held up beautifully through crawling, toddling, the ripping open of presents, being passed from one family member to the next, even a pre-party nap... you get the picture. ;)

I couldn't have possibly asked for a more perfect birthday onesie for my little girl!  My good friend Denise of Ainsley's Closet makes these custom onesies & children's clothing as well as pretty hair bows.  I told her the size, the colors, & what I wanted on the onesie, and she did all the rest! :)  
A wonderful surprise detail was the little yellow stitched heart on the bottom- Adorable, right??

I so love this rainbow colored shabby chic fabric flowers headband from Kristine at J&M's Eye Candy Shoppe.  It is no secret that I adore this lady's hair pretties. ;)  She has such a gorgeous selection in her shop, but if you are looking for something custom she can definitely make that happen for you!  She did for me.  I just let her know what colors I wanted, gave her an idea of how large I wanted the actual floral piece to be, and then Kristine worked her magic!  

I cannot recommend all of these fabulous ladies & their lovely shops enough!  They made my baby girl's first birthday party just all that much more special.  If you are in the market for the perfect little birthday outfit or just need a few handmade custom frilly things, then you know where you need to go.
