Our baby boy turned one!!! We really cannot believe how fast he is growing! It is such a bittersweet time. We had a big blowout for his 1st birthday party....you know how it goes. We went all out. :) We had a monkey theme with blue/brown/green and lots of polka dots. I absolutely loved it!!
Monkey invite from Dimpleprints on Etsy....I loved it!
Mommy,Birthday Boy and Daddy
He is not going to be a sweets eater...he didn't really care for the cake.
After we finished singing Happy Birthday, Carter started clapping. So cute!
Momma's baby....or toddler. :(
I made the "It's a party" sign just incase they went to the wrong house..lol!
I was going to hang the "I am One" banner around his high chair but it was too long.
I covered some formula cans to weight the balloons down in-then I stuffed some tulle inside. Of course, it had to have a tulle ribbon! I am in love with tulle now!!
We did bubbles as favors...they were about 50 cents apeice. Once I wrapped them with tulle and made a "thanks" tag, they were good to go!
This was the favor table. Why do people forget to take favors with them?? I had a bunch left over.
I love the Happy Birthday banner. It took me a while-it was the first I've ever made. I see why people on etsy charge $40 for them.
My neighbor had a book with these cupcakes in them. I loved them and thought they would be easy to make....WRONG! Took me forever! They turned out cute though...thank goodness! I used raisins for the eyes, chocolate disks for ears and piped the mouth/nose on. YUM!
I got carter's smash cake from Cakes by Claire...she did Great!! It matched perfectly!
My friend Kimber made these DELICIOUS cookies. How cute are they?!! She is so talented!! Thanks!
I got this cookie jar thing from wal mart, wrapped in ribbon, made a sign and VOILA! MoNkEy punch!
The cake table.
I really thought everything turned out just perfect. It was just the way I've been dreaming it would be! Is that silly? Maybe it's a mom thing. Carter had such a great time playing with all the kiddos. Usually it's just the two of us, so it was nice to have a house full of people for a change.
Thanks to everyone who came!! We had a blast!
