I spent the weekend prepping for and attending an amazing first birthday party. My wonderful god son Liam turned one over the weekend and to celebrate his momma threw him the mother of all first birthday parties. The chosen theme of the day was Sesame Street, and his fabulous mommy should really be an event planner, because she went ALL out, and it showed. It was a backyard barbecue-style event that was decorated so fabulously it looked as if we were having a block party right on Sesame Street. The kids got to get their faces painted by an awesome artist (PattySweetCakes), jump around in the giant bouncer, and take a swing at the piñata. Meanwhile, us adults enjoyed one of the last beautiful days of summer and munched on yummy dishes like guava empanadas, shrimp shish-kabob, and sliders. It was truly the perfect party!
Look at what you can do for your little one with the right patience, planning, and persistence, on a very practical budget. (And if you want to know where she got some of the fabulous one of a kind details, just holler, and I’ll share all the details.) I can tell you that the one of a kind cake is another great creation from Anne over at Pink Cake Box. Happy, Happy Birthday Liam!
