Little Man Party: Part 1

Well, it's hard to believe, but Beckett turned 1 over the weekend! To celebrate, we threw a big bash for our little man. I had so much fun planning the party and may have went a little over the top, but come on, you only turn 1 once! I'd love to share some of the details of the party!

First up, the decorations....

I made a bunch of paper poms and hung them from the ceiling in the living room, as well as paper flags and hung them above the dessert table.

I wanted to keep in theme, so I made a necktie 'Happy Birthday Beck!' banner, which I think turned out really cool! I loved adding little details around the house that people could discover.

One of my favorite things were the felt mustaches on sticks & handmade bow ties on sticks I made. The bow ties turned out really cool and were super easy to make. I had them set out so guests could easily grab 'em!

I made a silhouette Beckett portrait and put it in an old frame and put it on the dessert table. It was really easy to make, and I loved the vibe it added to the little man theme!

I also made a time line of photos of Beckett from all 12 months and hung them in order across the bookshelf. I also made these really cool 'No. 1' ribbons and hung them around the house, I loved the way they turned out!

Up next, more photos of the party details, along with the food!

Love this party! Planning one for my own little man who's turning one next month. The felt mustaches and bow ties are too cute. Do you have a pattern for how you made the bow ties? Thanks for sharing! :)
