If there is anyone who can vouch for the fact that there is no greater feeling than the love of family (sorry, we had to), it’s 7th Heaven’s Beverley Mitchell. This mother of the oh-so-adorable Kenzie Lynne threw her little princess a soirée for her first birthday, and yes, an over-the-top headband was involved, and yes, it was adorable.

“A bit over the top for me, but you definitely knew who the birthday girl was,” Beverley admitted to People. “I still can’t get over that she kept that headband on!” We’re glad she did, because little Kenzie was cute as a button in her little birthday get-up, which featured frills, bows, and ruffles. Because how else would you dress up for your first birthday?

As for this little girl’s “strawberry lemonade” themed birthday party, Beverley and her husband of five years, Michael Cameron, invited friends and family to their Los Angeles home to ring in Kenzie’s first year of life. They celebrated with sweet treats in the shapes of lemonades and a pink cake decorated with frosting in the shape of roses.

“It was so bright and cheery and perfect for spring,” the actress told People. “We wanted something small and intimate for her first birthday. We wanted to be able to focus on Kenzie.” Sounds like a success to us!

The couple welcomed Kenzie — their first child — last year and much to their dismay, the first year just flew by. “I think both Michael and I were in a bit of denial that Kenzie is already one. I know everyone says it, but truly where did the time go?” she adds.

“It was really nice to have an intimate gathering for Kenzie to celebrate her first year of life.” And we’re thankful for the adorable photos of their little princess. Happy Birthday, Kenzie!
