I went with a Disney Pixar UP theme. It is very special to me and It was loads of fun to plan. I made 90% of the decoration myself and had so much fun learning how to do everything, using gimp & making treats. I think I found a new hobby!
This is the invitation I made. Has birthday boy Liam and his brother Daniel on it.
I found a great little shop at Etsy that made these pins for the boys to wear. Love these!
I had to go easy on the labels unfortunately. It was really windy out so I couldn't have any on the tables. These were still fun to make and came out great.
I LOVE these paper straws! I made these little flags to go with them to say "Happy 1st birthday Liam, 3.18.11".
I transformed a little wooden birdhouse into an UP house. It had balloons, but the wind blew or popped most of them. The banner on the table reads: "Spirit of Adventure". I made my own copy off of one I saw on Etsy. Took me ages to get the text just right. I am a bit of a perfectionist and I just had to have it look exact.
Vintage soda's to go with my vintage feel. And of course Grape Soda. :)
These brownie pops were a big hit with the lil ones. They are covered in thousands of tiny balloons, hehe! Oh so fun to make!
Trail mix waffle cones, mmm yummy!
Can't have a party with some sandwiches. Chicken and provolone, Ham and cheddar on super delicious yeast rolls.
And of course CAKE!
We had such a fun day at the park for Liam's first birthday!
I love him soo! Can't wait to plan Daniel's 5th birthday party! This was so much fun!
