DeAnna Pappas Throws Her Daughter the Cutest 1st Birthday Party
JUST A 'SPRINKLE'
Former Bachelorette DeAnna Pappas and husband Stephen Stagliano kept it thematic for daughter Addison Marie's first birthday on Feb. 7, taking the idea of "Sprinkled with Love" from the décor to the confetti-covered cake by Fantasy Frostings. "The party was about the most amazing thing that we have ever seen," Pappas tells PEOPLE.
GROWING UP FAST
To mark the milestone, Pappas and Stagliano shared a Pin-worthy recap of Addison's major moments – and it sounds like there are many additions to come. "She is so even-tempered and such a joy to be around," Pappas shares. "Always smiling and always laughing, she is the best!"
"I had confidence that I would be a good mother," Pappas says, "but I had no way to anticipate what this would be like."
Revelers enjoyed a variety of foods from StoneFire Grill, including hearty salads and yummy mac and cheese.
And baby makes three! "Addison pushes me to be better," Pappas shares. "Everything I do, I do for her. She owns me. I love her so much that I cannot stand it."
When not fawning over the birthday girl, partygoers got busy creating crafts to take home.
LIFE IS SWEET
After blowing out her first candle, Addison goes in for a bite of cake. The baby "is a true blessing to us and our family," Pappas says. As for motherhood? "It's the best thing I have ever done with my life."
DO US A FAVOR
With the celebrations winding down, the family of three shares an adorable moment. "I don't think I will ever be able to top this," Pappas says. "The party was above and beyond!"
