Little Man's BIG Day (part 1)

Mr. Parker had his big 1st birthday bash and I think it was a big success!!! This is what I've been working on for months and why I have been very absent as of late.
So I will preface this with the fact that I did not get everything done in a timely manner and so my vision was not fully realized. I thought I could be done in time to take pictures before the guests arrived, but no...my bad!!! Maybe next time. And now I will let the photos speak for themselves...










Sorry for making this a 2 part post! Our party was friday and I am still beyond pooped! I will post later about ideas and more detail about the party, I just had to get this out because I've been waiting to share this with you for soooo long!

The one thing I will say is my sweet sis-in-law Stacey made all the yummy sweets for me from inspiration photos I showed her!



Little man says "THANKS FOR CHECKING OUT MY PARTY"!!!!!




Thankful for the fact that we don't go hungry!

I know this is an old post but I found your sons first birthday party thru pinterest and I am doing the exact same theme and colors for my sons first bday also and I wanted a red and white stripe background as well and have been trying to brainstorm the best way to do it and I love yours, how did you do it or where did you find a stripe background if it was already done. Thank you so much in advanced
