Party Recap

Our little man turned one and what better way to celebrate than with the awesome children's book, "Where the Wild Things Are." I had so much fun transforming our dining room into a forest full of wild things. Guest wrote well wishes for the birthday boy in his own copy of "Where the Wild Things Are". The kids made their own wild things. The entire party was a blast and all the adults and kids enjoyed themselves. It was a successful and fun 1st birthday!

  • Activities / Games

    What will Asher be when he grows up? Five items (a book, a microphone, a stethoscope, money, and a ball) were laid out in the floor. Each guest cast a vote as to what they thought Asher would choose. Asher walked to one and picked it up. A name from that jar was chosen and they won a prize (a $10 Amazon gift card) Kids got to make their own wild things by gluing face cutouts on a plate. An Instagram style frame was available to capture moments with all the guests.

    That sounds great! How much? I'm still not 100% sure this is the theme we're using, but I do like it a lot as my little one's name is Max!

    Suzanne L... My cake girl is pretty amazing. I just send her pictures of cakes and she recreates them. The bark was done with chocolate bark I believe and the crown molded out of fondant. Kayla W the tree canopy is made with plastic tablecloths. I used extra tablecloths to stuff behind to make it look fuller :)
