Little Man turned 1

All I did was blink and fast forward 365 days later and my baby boy is 1.
Since his birthday fell in the week we threw a Dr Suess shindig this past weekend & of course I have pictures to share.

This lady came highly recommended by a Mommy circle in San Diego & I'm glad that I called. She made three dozen primary colored cupcakes and one adorable Cat in the Hat smash cake. I will be using her again in the future - the cake & cupcakes were amazing!

I made a photo frame for our photo prop station. It wasn't as big of a hit as I thought it would be but it was still super cute. I made the photo frame out of the thick poster board from Micheal's and covered it with fabric that I bought from The photo props where from a digital download from the etsy store Choosearoo. My friend & I cut out all the different characters and glued poster board to the back with a Popsicle  stick. Months and months of pouring over pinterest related pages led me to this awesome food selection. With all foods dedicated to a Dr Suess book I was super proud of the turn out. It was way too much food but it was super cute.

wooden letters & paint from Micheal's and hand painted them myself. 

Majority of all the Dr Suess decorations came from a website called Birthday Express. From the invitations to the Thank you cards this place had it all! Surprisingly very reasonable prices too! I didn't do a bundle but I do think that I got a great deal all the same. The remainding decorations came from either the Dollar Store or Target. I think I walked away spending close to $300 for the whole thing and the cupcakes/cake was $86!

All in all the party went great & I couldn't have been happier with the turn out! If you follow me on facebook then you have already seen the hundreds of pictures that were posted over the weekend. I just simply can't believe my little man is already one!! WOW!
