Last saturday, my little guy turned one. Can you believe it? I cannot understand how a year has already gone by- it is crazy! If you want to take a glimpse back at his first year of life, you can check out our family blog.
Jenetta . (we will be posting more in a week or so once my hubby's computer gets back from the Mac hospital)
Die Cuts with a View . The main part of the invitation is not actually shown- we included a CD of all of Isaiah's favorite songs. I'll take a photo of it and post it soon with the track listing. Because of the CD, I had to come up with a cute way to make a CD holder. I decided a pocket design would be easiest and cutest. It was super simple to make as well. I cut the paper, folded in in half and then we stitched the sides with a sewing machine (and by we, I mean my mom... aka my personal seamstress!). I used a circle hole punch to make the opening slit and the glued on the graphic (which was so generously given to me by etsy seller Salmon Street Studio ). I used a lot of kraft paper for the party to give it a laid back, slightly retro feel. I also made Isaiah a party hat out of the paper:Polka Dots & Pirates .
He was not as into it as I was- it only lasted a couple of minutes.
Friends of ours from church graciously allowed us to have the party in their park...err backyard. It is gorgeous and huge!
A couple of shots of the cake and gift area.
The signs were not staying in the ground well, so we got resourceful and grabbed some potted plants.
We hung some pots & pans and let the kids bang away with wooden spoons. It was funny, but the kids that played with it the most were the big kids (the 8-12 year olds!)
I made tags with each child's name on them, using my cricut. I don't have pictures of the actual favors yet, so you will just have to check back next week to see what they were!
Isaiah loved playing the bum floor tom drum and his little red piano. He even wanted to stop eating his cake so he could keep playing the piano.
More to come (food and other details).
Happy birthday sweet one year old!
We love you!
