My baby turned one this week.
How is that even possible?! Wasn’t I just on maternity leave last week?!? Somehow time has flown by and a whole year has passed without my permission!
Truth: I LOVE birthday parties! I LOVE them! I think birthday’s should last all month (at least). I think everyone should be celebrated and adored for at least one day a year. I love having my birthday celebrated and I love celebrating my kids!
Little Man doesn’t necessarily have favorite things yet (with the exception of drumming on everything and yelling as loud as possible) so I got to pick the theme and because the hubby is a big Cleveland Indians fan and it’s almost opening day, we had a baseball party.
Here’s how we celebrated….
We did a cake smash photo shoot (at home) for both our kids before their first birthdays. This little man is so serious…he loved the cake, but he certainly refused to smile!
We had an all ball game menu, which was super easy! Hotdogs (in the slowcooker – easiest thing ever!), chips, popcorn, Cracker Jacks, peanuts, popcorn balls, strawberries, grapes and a veggie tray (because you have to include a little healthy food, right?) I made these little labels to go along with our baseball theme. Click here to download them for free!
I love using my cricut for parties! Who am I kidding – I love my cricut for everything! Vinyl, paper, fabric…oh the possibilities! Anyway…I made baseballs and little pennants to put in my little IKEA bud vases. I love the subtle touches around the house…and my three year old loves that we now have a ton of “wands!” I also made a precious little banner for the highchair. the cricut plus Sure Cuts Lot makes these projects SO easy!
I have created a pdf file that includes an initiation, food labels and thank you cards with a baseball theme! You can download it by clicking here.
Of course, I had to have the perfect Jamberry wraps to go along with our party theme! If you want gorgeous, long lasting nails, too, comment for a sample or visit www.elisabeth325.jamberrynails.net.
Happy birthday, Little Ma
