She also provided a behind the scenes look at the decorations used for Hartford’s daughter’s special day. This included wrapping paper that featured images of Hartford on it, a gallery wall with photos, and deer cakes.

Stassi posted a sweet photo of herself kissing and congratulating her husband on becoming parents, in between the festivity.

“Okay but it’s a celebration for us too,” she captioned the pic. “One year down as parents.” 

On Hartford’s actual birthday, Stassi penned an emotional Instagram post to her “darling girl,” calling her “the most spunky, determined, curious, bossy, bright, funny, demanding, friendly, dramatic, confident, independent, thoughtful, sweet blue-eyed baby.” 

Elle continued: “Beaut has main character energy for many days… and she’s given to me the greatest year of my whole life.”
