His big day started with a celebratory donut for the special occassion. Fear not, I didn't let him eat the entire thing, there was plenty more sugar where this came from!
We spent the afternoon playing on the new slide fort, a birthday gift from the grands and prepping the lawn for the extraordinary party to come!
Shortly before party time, we had a little thunder shower scare, so we set up for the party not once but twice! Lordy me, we had good practice after the first setup / dry run and the second time was a snap.
I'll share all the many cute details and the how to's over the coming days, for now ... enjoy these fun pics.
For a party of about 60 guests celebrating Baby B's big first birthday, I planned a vintage lawn party with a Southern twist. We wanted it fun for littles and bigs of all ages. Dinner was catered by the Varsity food truck. A band was on hand to sing silly songs and hits we all know. Treats and cold beverages kept everyone full. And games were played along the lawn to keep everyone busy.
