Brody turned one on the 13th, and we celebrated his first year this Saturday. We had his party at our house and invited our family and friends to help us celebrate. Of course, Friday was 65 degrees and sunny, so the day of the party the weatherman was calling for sleet. Because in South Carolina, that’s how we roll… completely inexplicable weather abounds. So, my outdoor decor ended up a bit soggy, but oh well, Brody didn’t see that part anyway! We went with a construction theme because Brody LOVES trucks, and it was just a good fit for him. He was very excited about his balloons, and as I anticipated, didn’t hold back for one second when that cake was put in front of him- that boy adores eating! I know some people don’t understand doing big parties for such little kids, but for me, I really enjoy event planning and making a nice party for my kids. It’s just part of who I am and what I like to do. As usual, this party was done on a budget, and while I didn’t keep receipts, I’d say this one was under $200. More than I spent on Knox’s, but this was Brody’s first party, so excess was allowed! From here on out, I think we may be doing some joint parties since the boys’ birthdays are less than a month apart. Anyway, that’s a lot of chit chat when you really just want to see the pictures! Here it is, Brody’s first birthday party:
Brody’s shirt was made by Emily at Mini Sparrows- she does a great job!!
The big moment… the smash cake!
