Party Recap

My gosh, where do I begin. I had the best 3 months ever planning my baby boy's first birthday. I made his invitations, candy cars, apples, DJ Lance boom box, almost everything you see, I made. It was so much fun and such a success. Can't wait for next year's theme.

Idea

Party Highlights

  • Activities / Games

    Hired "Silly Friends" characters which kept the kids entertained. Played games for an hour, face painting and balloon twisting and lots of dancing.

    When the characters came out to dance with the kids. It was so much fun.

  • What People Ate

    Taco Bar

  • What People Drank

    Mexican Horchata/ Kids had fruit punch

    When the characters left. My Jay got really sad and cried a bit.

    Thanks everyone for the comments. I.got the props from etsy.com, kenia castaneda. She does an amazing job. Everything she does is hand crafted and hand painted. The characters I got from www.costumepeople.webs.com they're based in Orange, Ca. We're thinking of a Circus theme next year.
