We had an amazing time celebrating our little man's first birthday! I found some great material and created his tie and his sister's dress. I designed the party around those colors and all of his favorite things.
Little man of course....everyone loved his tie made by mommy. Second best was his sissy of course in her custom dress from HootyCutie Designs (www.hootycutiedesigns.blogspot.com) made especially to match her brother.
The cake was vanilla with buttercream icing and made by Marilyn Gingrich our go to cake lady here in Tallahassee. She matched the cake to the invitation.
Activities / Games
The kids enjoyed our beautiful spring weather and played on our playground in the backyard
we were definitely on a shoestring budget I made all the food, decorations & invitations. You can read about it on my blog...www.simplysprout.blogspot.com..... you don't have to spend a fortune to have a beautiful party.
The party favors were our little man's favorites Nila wafers that were iced with polka dots, number 1's and the letter C (for our little man Callen)
Watching our little man eat his cake....helped by his big sissy of course!
