Hello friends! After a wonderful summer break I am back! We had record breaking rain so we were not outside as much as I wanted but I was able to plan Fletcher’s first birthday party and get some organizing done around the house. We had a great family beach trip and a mini vacation in upstate New York. I am going to share with you (one of) Fletcher's first birthday party!
Fletcher has been obsessed with the song You Are My Sunshine since he was only a couple months old. He could be in an uncontrollable crying fit and as long as you’d turn on the song he’d stop within seconds. It has shocked so many people around us. So of course I had to make that his birthday theme. I had so much fun making a lot of the decor! I couldn’t find exactly what I wanted on Pinterest with this theme so creating my own was a lot of fun!
Cake was made by Maddie Cakes of Roaring Spring and just as delicious as beautiful! Cupcake toppers are from Amazon.
For this photo banner I just printed photos from Walgreens and hot glued clothes pins to the back of the clouds on the pre made felt banner. Super easy and adorable!
Poster was made by my sweet friend Delaina. You can find her on Instagram @delaina_j for custom work like this one!
I made this chalkboard looking sign on Pic Monkey and got some inspiration from a few online. You can also purchase them on Etsy.
"1" Bannor I made with stiff felt and a few different textures of ribbon from Hobby Lobby. His shirt I had made from a shop called The Barker Boutique on Etsy.
Fletcher's favorite part was the food! (Those of you who know him are not surprised haha). Here he is enjoying a home made burrito made by his great grandpa. His Aunt Nonni was happy to feed and spoil him 😋. We also had a simple but scrumptious spread of pulled pork, mac and cheese, pasta salad, cole slaw, baked beans, and veggie/fruit platters.
The weather held off on storming and rain which was a huge relief. We even had a beautiful rainbow! It was a perfect time celebrating with family from far far away. Thanks so much for reading all about our birthday celebration! I'll see you back here next Friday! It's good to be back!
