A month ago my "baby" turned one. I'm still in denial about it. I need him to stay little just a tad bit longer.
We read The Very Hungry Caterpillar to the boys pretty frequently and it seemed perfect to throw Nox a birthday party themed with the adorable little caterpillar. It was so much fun to put together and I loved all the ideas I found on Pinterest (see my board: HERE.)
The first thing I put together was the invites:
I created using a great free digi kit from Meet the Laings: HERE.
Here are some highlights of decor from the party:
With the exception of the wreath all pictures were taken by my buddy Kim with A Thousand Words by Kim. She really takes a lot of stress off me when I hire her for parties. It's really my one splurge.The wreath I found at the dollar store and just dressed it up. The cake I was going to do myself, but decided it was a bit beyond my talents and got Target to create it for me. My favorite creation was that sun sitting behind Nox. It's still up, I just can't bring myself to take it down. I know I have to eventually, but it makes me smile.
I also made Nox's birthday outfit using my favorite pants pattern: Made by Rae's Big Butt Baby Pants. This particular pair is my favorite so far. I love the green panel in the back and the cuffs add something fun too. Doesn't hurt that my model is just so cute. ;o)
I'll leave ya tonight with a cake photo taken by Kim.
