On Saturday we pulled off his highly anticipated first birthday party. Everything came together quite nicely, and once again I was in my element making it special and memorable. Wait, memorable? That one must be for me, as he is never gonna recall the day ;)
Anyways, I knew from the time he was still in the womb that his first celebration was going to have an owl theme. As does his nursery. I really like owls, if you couldn't already tell. And it's just so fun for me to go off the beaten store bought path, and see what I can create on my own.
It all started with finding this perfect little invitation from Pear Tree Greetings, and then I made everything else to compliment around it.
No one can say that I don't give attention to the details. That's my favorite part.

Nugget and I worked together on a special little project, cause sister likes to create too. (Hence the crooked stickers.)
No party is complete without cupcakes, a candle, and some singing, as we learned at yesterday's tea party.
Brother couldn't wait to get his hands on one, so Mama had to hold it while we sang to him. Safety first.
First cupcake? Done.
And of course he had oodles of presents to dive into.
A paintbrush from Auntie Angie, Uncle Jesse, and cousins. How perfect!
And some sweet little parting gifts to say Thanks for coming. Owls with (gummy) worms in their tummies. Cause you know, owls eat worms.
The party sure was a hoot. Pics from his actual birthday to come. Stay tuned.
