My baby offically turned one a couple of weeks ago. If I didn't have all the photos to prove it, I would protest that it just isn’t so! Being a summer baby, we knew we’d be celebrating outdoors. I wanted to have a jungle theme but with certain restraints, I couldn’t feature any real plants into the decor. So instead, I used some polyester and parchment leaves that I found online. Once I decided that gold was going to be the accent colour, I knew that I had to have the mylar “ONE” letter ballons from Oh Shiny Paper Co. and the mylar “1" cake topper with a mini 'M' from Cindy Confetti Sparkle Party Shop. The “1" and “M" piñatas I made, using a recycled daiper box, tissue, and foil paper. The jar favors were simply little safari animals glue-gunned to the lids and finished with some gold spray paint. All of these, were made with helpful tips and tutorials from Pinterest. The personalized initial name tags and gold party hat were all made using my Cricut Expression. Finished off with a cake, Oreo sprinkle pops, rice krispy squares, and some chocolate-dipped marshmallows, the birthday stage was set!
While he may not remember his first birthday, I wanted Mason to be able to look back on it and see just how much fun we had!
