John Andrew’s Silhouette Inspired 1st Birthday Party!
As promised here is John Andrew’s 1st Birthday celebration!
We had a mix of themes for our little man’s 1st birthday party. The main theme was ‘Movie in the Park’ and Little Man and puppies. I incorporated John’s 12 months of silhouettes (I drew his silhouette each month of his life until his first birthday). And of course our little man was as dapper as he could be. DIY Bow ties were part of his attire, decorations, props and party favors for his guy friends and bow clips for the lady friends. The dessert table consisted of cupcakes, macaroons, powder donuts and cake pops as well as sweet marshmallows. Lots of preppy stripes and dots went without saying – green and different hues of blue, and of course yellow – Hello Spring!
If all started with this invitation
My favorite element were of course his darling silhouettes which I used on the silhouette banner (see picture below), thank you tags and framed as a focal point. I created a cute sign “Movie in the park. Grab a blanket and enjoy!” and lots of pillows and blankets for the kids to grab and get comfortable while watching a puppy movie. Some of the fun DIY projects included the topiary trees made with boxwood balls, bow ties and bow hair clips and silhouette banner (stay tuned for DIY tutorials coming soon!). We worked with the talented Kelly Lyden of WH Hostess to perfect each detail of the party. Kelly’s eye for detail and all things party, made this party extra special. And look at that cake! The baker did an amazing job capturing the theme and colors.
