Things as usual have been beyond crazy hectic.... but after much ado and should we or shouldn't we for the party due to illness and weather forecast. It is now one for the history books. Due to Adrienne's surgery and Zade and Skyler being sick it is a for sure scaled back version and a much more low key party than originally planned.
The theme that Skyler wanted was how to train your dragon. Adrienne decided to go with a store bought cake which was a great idea considering the month really just fell apart.
So on to a few pictures of the few things that I created for the party.
First off the photo spot for the smash cake. She took white plastic tablecloths and taped them up them we taped on the banners. (disclamer... I had to buy a few sheets of paper for this as there were not enough in my stash) It worked beautifully and I have a great place in my house to execute it. Zade has been really sick so not his usual jovial self and really was not in to the cake. So the pictures do not show his personality. I loved the photo spot though and know that it will be repeated.
His nursery is Pooh so since he did not have a party themed I made the card Pooh themed. I still can not believe that I am making a first birthday card for this precious little guy!
Now to the "How to train your dragon" portion of the party.
Here is the store bought cake.
And here are the banners. They were originally suppose to be outside so up against my curtains was not the best showcase.....
Believe it or not All this paper was from my stash.... I am a sucker for the stacks on sale at Michaels. The jewels on the helmet are from way back. the ribbon is part of a huge roll that I bought 3 years ago for Adrienne's wedding Thank you notes
And my fav His birthday card. I am so in love with box cards
