We celebrated Leo's 1st birthday this weekend and it was a great time. We live far from family but amazingly we had lots of family members here to celebrate along with our friends. The theme was stripes and we asked the attendees to dress accordingly. Just about everyone wore some sort of striped combination and it looked very festive!
I ordered striped party supplies from Shop Sweet Lulu, which has very cute stuff. We had various snacks and cupcakes and mini pb and j's. It was fun to mix and match the stripes.
I love all the different stripe patterns going on.
I customized some store bought blowers to go with the theme.
We filled lots of balloons with helium and I made a stitched paper garland.
A custom birthday hat which of course Leo wouldn't wear even for a second.
The birthday boy was in awe of everyone singing to him!
I made a "1" iron-on for his shirt which he wore with seersucker shorts.
Friends and family watching intently as Leo took a long time to open his gifts.
And finally I make a backdrop behind the food table of Leo's monthly photos. I have mentioned these before, the onesies are from Culpeper General. It was hard the last few months to get Leo to sit still for the photos so I'm pretty glad to be done with that project! It looked great and is so nice to have a complete set though.
All in all a nice celebration of the past year with our little guy!
