Somehow the day has come, and now gone. His first birthday. I put so much thought into what I wanted to do. Wild has been a theme since having little man so I knew right off the bat that I wanted to do a “Wild One” party. However in the beginning I wasn’t going to do it based off of Where the wild things are. I was going to do a lumberjack outdoorsy themed but since his birthday is in June I realized thats kinda out of season and decided to go with the classic Where the Wild Things are.
This birthday was a labor of love and such a fun collaboration with soooooo many incredible companies. Cannot wait to share all the pictures with you guys. So lets get started.
His invites were designed by Kelly Jo Studio on etsy and printed by Basic Invite. I’ve used several different printers over the years being a photographer and these honestly were the best quality. These are velvet ❤ Ummmmm, I didn’t even know that was an option till I found basic invite. So obviously I had to choose those.
Basic Invite is one of the few websites that allows customers almost unlimited color options with instant previews online. Once you select a design you can change the color of each element on the card to over 180 different color options so you can make sure the card is exactly how you want it down to the littlest detail. This is what we feel sets us apart from almost any other online stationery company and is what we feel is our biggest draw. Oh, and they have free address collection service. Talk about a one stop shop. Basic Invite is my new go-to!
Sidenote. Is RSVP’ing a thing of the past? Not one person RSVP’d. haha. I had to create a Facebook group where people actually rsvp’d. haha. Maybe they just all assumed I knew they were coming. haha.
Anyways, I digress. I knew I wanted to try and stick pretty close to the theme of the book with just some minor tweaks here are there.
His outfit, well it just slays me. His crown was handmade by Jessica at NuggetteCouture on Etsy. We just sent her his dimensions and she custom made it for him. You guys Jessica is AMAZING!!!! Please, go send her some love and go follow her on instagram HERE. The quality is way better than anything you’re going to find at the store. We are keeping the crown and tail for his ‘dress up box’ later down the road and because hello that crown is so stinking cute. Instant heart melt.
His cupcake toppers are all from Glitter Designs Co . You guys Etsy is where you wanna look for everything party related! I am telling you there is so much talent there!! If you remember in his first birthday cake smash I had a cake topper. This was also made by Glitter Designs Co.
His tree cake platters are from Targets Christmas Clearance when it went to 90%. I got them for $0.50 each!!
We had so much fun. I’ve discovered one of my favorite things is having a house full of laughter and noise. It was the best feeling ever having our friends and family come celebrate our little man.
Thanks to everyone who made his birthday such an amazing success ❤
