Party Time

I really wanted to make Vincent's first birthday special. I looked up little boy birthday party themes for days and when I finally heard about having a "little man" party I thought, what could be more perfect?! And cute?!

But rather than tell you how it all turned out, how about I show you..?
A tie wreath that eventually ended up on the front door where it belonged for the party. All made from ties that once belonged to his daddy, his grandpa and his papa. This will go as a keep sake in his room next 😃
A hand crafted happy birthday banner, a 1 made out of pictures from his first year, printed signs that matched his theme on the drink containers and mustaches on the straws that you can't see now, but that seemed to be a hit for some very special guests.
Root beer instead of beer (it was a one year olds birthday party afterall), funfetti cupcakes with yellow sprinkles and a new favorite and DElicious jalapeño dip.
The Mustaches were fun all around.. or maybe just with the Turri's ;0)
And baby boy ate his whole cupcake! It was probably for the best too because it helped keep his spirits high as he partied the night away.
Our little house was filled to maximum capacity. And Vincent was the center of attention, of course.
We were both overwhelmed with our guests as they showered Vincent with the most amazing gifts. We opened them for what seemed like forever as Vincent's patience level for sitting like a good boy ran extremely low. Too many new toys to play with and so little time!
Thank you cookies. The least I could do for those who came out to celebrate!
As you can see he is one loved little guy. And we all couldn't have been happier to celebrate him!
Oh and who would have thought that two days later balloons could still be this much fun!!?!
I'd say his party was a success.
And thanks to everyone who came to wish him a happy birthday. You all made it EXTRA special and we appreciate and love you all SO very much.
