My Boy's First Birthday
Wow, I can not believe it has been a year since my little man turned 1. We are planning his birthday party for this weekend, and I can't help but think about all the fun we had at his party last year.
For any of you with young kids, you know how much of a feat it must have been to wrangle all these tots into a photo all at once... It definitely wasn't easy!
The birthday boy is in the middle of the top row. What a cutie, right?
“Roses are red, violets are blue, today you are one, next year you’ll be two! There isn't another who's sweeter than you.
Here we are cutting the cake! We went a little overboard on his birthday table, but DON'T JUDGE! I can explain...
So I always go all out on 1st birthdays... BUT WAIT, there's more to my explanation! I decided that instead of buying cheap junk to decorate, I would get real stuff and I would save it for when little man's room was transformed into a toddler room. :)
If you've kept up with my decor adventures, you may recognize some of these items from other spots in the house. I actually planned Little Man's toddler room to have a nautical theme, so I ordered party decorations that could live on in his new room for a while.
Sure, I had to store the stuff for a little while until he was ready to be in a toddler room, but I just LOVE the way this table turned out! I really enjoyed it.
I don't always get a professionally made cake, but for special birthdays I don't mind the splurge. Plus this one is all buttercream icing, not fondant! Can you believe how smooth it is? I just love it!
Below are some more detail shots and sources linked from the party including snacks, favors and more.
