Okay, here it is… a recap of Kenton’s first birthday party. Or, as I like to call it, his “‘stache bash!”
If you missed seeing the party invites, check them out here.
You’re also getting a sneak peek at our new STRIPES! They make me so happy, I can’t even tell you. (More to come.)
There’s also a sneak peek at all 12 of the monthly photos! I had a poster printed overnight so we could show them off at the bash. (Also, more to come!)
Drinks & Food. We kept things really simple. The party was from 3:00-5:00 PM – so we did heavy hors d’oeuvres… beef sliders, pasta salad, watermelon, veggies, chips and lemonade.
The birthday boy did not disappoint when it came to the ceremonial first birthday cake face smash. I mean, we had a total classic moment!
Which, of course, meant he kept diving in over and over again. TOO CUTE! Safe to say, he loves cake! He has a sweet tooth like his daddy. 🙂
All of our guests left with chocolate mustache pops as favors… pardon the crappy iPhone photo…
Confession: I came up with “‘stache bash” the morning of the party and the favors were done a day or so head of time. If I could go back in time, I totally would have changed the thank you note. I’m planning to do a separate post on these favors because they were challenging and I didn’t find a lot of info out there for help… so I’ll do my best to contribute in case someone else wants to do them.
We ran out of time to open presents while our guests were still around, but Grandpa & Grandma stuck around to help Kenton check out his new loot.
And they were good enough to pose for mustache pics!
Kenton rounded out the day taking a spin in his NEW CAR!
Which absolutely terrorizes Bowdoin the Bulldog… which Kenton finds hilarious (and so did we!).
There it is. I admit, I’m glad it’s over! It was a lot of work, but a lot of fun. Thanks to everyone who came to celebrate with us! 🙂
