Little Man First Birthday Party

Happy first birthday to our little man!

Okay, so Little Bundle of Joy turned a year old on Dec. 25, and I’ve been more than negligent in updating this blog. But, his birthday party theme was so darn stinking cute, I couldn’t resist sharing it, although a little late. (In the photo above, the birthday banner is from Etsy shop, Round the Bend.)

Because BP and my families are so large, we limited the guest list to only immediate family and a couple of people who Little Bundle of Joy interacts with on a regular basis. We’d have loved to have invited everyone we know and love, but we didn’t have that kind of space, or budget!

The theme: our little man.

Little Brother and The Fiance, who own a graphic design business, designed the invitations, cupcake toppers and 8×8 scrapbook page (which party guests filled out while they were seated at the tables). All I provided was the text, and Little Brother took it from there.

Little Brother even took it upon himself to have an adorable, giant birthday poster printed for the party. I couldn’t have asked for anything cuter! It all was adorable. (And, as a side note, Little Brother took all the pictures from the party, too.)

Little Bundle of Joy wore a very appropriate T-shirt, which I purchased from We Choose Joy on Etsy.

My Mom made mustache-shaped cookies, using cookie cutters I purchased from Fuzzy Ink and her super-delicious recipe passed down from her mother.

The Fiance used the same cookie cutters to trace and cut out mustaches, which she glued to sticks. They made for fun photo props and entertainment.

BP and I made dozens of chocolate lollipops using a mustache candy mold.

For centerpieces, I ordered white, red and black candies and displayed them in canning jars, which BP and I already owned.

Happy first birthday to my sweet little man!
