Yea yea I know it’s been almost 2 months but you should know good things come to those who wait. The Lil Diva waited 7 years for a little sister and what did she get?!? A little monster known as her brother :) So how fitting that we threw a little monster party for his first birthday!
I will admit I had ideas for his party months before his birthday but as usual life gets chaotic so I didn’t get a chance to do much until the day before the party! I was still throwing things together when guests started arriving! Plus I struggled a little with the party being half inside and half outside, it was so hot but it was Memorial day weekend, what do you do???
Lucky for me (and you) I have some very talented friends and
some a ton of awesome photos from the party for your viewing pleasure! Thanks to Jessica from livethefancylife.com and Heidi from HM Photography! I’ve known Jes for over 12 years and Heidi for 7 and they still put up with me! Needless to say this is a very photo-heavy post!
Here are some shots of the decor, and seriously, having someone who knows a thing or two about photography really makes my last-minute/low-budget decor look pretty great!
Some of the fun activities:
And of course the goodies:
And the birthday boy having the time of his life:
And a couple of precious awwwwwww inspiring moments:
I don’t think I have ever seen a 1 year old have sooooo much fun at his birthday party! The party also reminded but of what awesome friends and family we have! There are about 100 more photos I would love to share but I will restrain myself.
True to our multicultural family style the party started at 2pm and lasted until past midnight! That’s just how we roll. This blog post from Latinish.com explains everything :)
Peace, Love and birthday party-ness!
