This is the Birthday Boy!
C had such a great birthday filled with family, bright fun colors, presents, cake, and fun!
His adorable little birthday shirt came from none other then Pocketbaby on Etsy. She makes great quality shirts and lets you customize how you want it. I think his shirt was perfect for his big day.
Mama and dadda got him this fun Step2 wagon.
He loves this thing! He has already taken two walks in it.
The wagon is perfect because in the front it has drink holders for the adults and in the middle it has two drink holders for the kids (fits sippy's perfectly), in both kids seats are buckle where you can buckle each kid in. And, of course the top, it keeps the kids shaded and the big bad sun off them. Safety first :)
Now here is the food table.
The table cloth is from Target.
We had deli meat subs from Publix. They were cut up individually and were huge and delicious!
Then there was the potato salad, popcorn and cake.
The popcorn boxes came from Sweet Lulu's and lets just say the popcorn was a big hit! I also got some pretty paper straws and those ginormous balloons I put on the wagon from her shop too. She has some of the most unique and prettiest party supplies. If you have a party coming up you must go visit her shop. You will want to buy everything. I promise!
Now onto the smash cake that was not smashed.
Mama made it.
I made the rainbow cake I have been seeing on Pinterest and trying to find a reason to make. Yeah, that one. I don't have any actual pictures of the cake inside which I am so annoyed about because it was so pretty.
I just have this picture of me making the cake.
This will have to do :)
So the little Birthday Boy did not smash the cake.
He just put the tips of his fingers in it and started to cry.
I think that there were too many people looking at him and he wasn't too sure about it all.
He actually really didn't eat anything the whole day because there was so much going on.
His birthday cake bunting and this high chair bunting came from Etsy as well.
Actually this was by far the best customer service I have ever had! Astrid was so sweet to me and whipped out two amazing buntings and got them to me in a matter of days. I contacted her a week before the party (heck it could have been even less time then that) and she was so kind to make sure I got it all in plenty of time and it was the perfect edition to the party. Please go visit Astrid's shop, its RedRedCompletelyRed she rocks!!
I wanted to display his monthly pictures I have been taking but I was just too consumed with life, work, and other party stuff that I didn't get around to it. So I just covered a huge canvas we have in our kitchen area with some wrapping paper and did a clothes line with some pictures, glittered up some clothes pins and WAH LA! I think it turned out cute. Not as cute as the monthlys but oh well. It did the job.
I of course did the balloon wreath with the 1 in the middle. It turned out super cute.
This isn't the best picture but you get the idea.
Again, off Pinterest.
I also made this bunting.
And by made I mean I went to Target and bought the actual bunting.
They have a very cool party section now, I think its called Spritz or something like that.
Each strand was like $5.00 I think, maybe even a bit cheaper.
Then I cut out some letters, glittered them up, got some fabric glue and glued 'em on.
It says "Colby is 1!"
Now that the party is over, we are hanging his name in his room.
It looks cute in there.
If you are looking for an inexpensive way to make bunting I would say that this is it.
Most on Etsy are very expensive and you can tell people you made this one.
I myself am not a sewer nor do I have fabric scraps laying around so this was perfect for me.
I did have some Printables too.
I got most of them for free from either Pinterest or other blogs I frequent.
If you are interested in any boy printables let me know and ill send you 'em.
Then of course there was the fun present opening.
By this time he was over the whole party so he kinda just sat there and watched us.
Overall it was a great party and I can't believe I now have a 1 year old!
I only cried hard once and that was at night when I decided it would have been a good idea to go rock him while he was sleeping. After a couple glasses of wine and my soon to be 1 year old. I just cried and cried holding my sweet little baby in my arms.
We love you C!
Glad you had a great day!
