Someone is going to be ONE - {Party Planning}

Today my little guy is 10 months old! He is hardly a baby anymore but a toddler on the verge of walking any day now. I can't believe how much cuter he gets each day! He has a huge smile, 7 teeth coming in (4 on top, 3 on bottom) and loves to wave to the lights and say "da da da da" like crazy! With his FIRST birthday quickly approaching in 2 months, you better believe that the planning for his birthday bash is well underway! Here's a sneak peak at some of the colors I plan to use for his special day! This polka dot fabric jumped out at me and I quickly snatched it up realizing I could do so many things with these colors! And it just so happens I already had 3 cake pedestals to match!

Stripe straws are all the rage these days and I have seen them in every color of the rainbow on a ton of party planning sites online, but you'll never guess where I found these for half the price...Michaels for $2.00! Gotta love a good find like this! So I grabbed 3 bags just in case! So now that you know the color's time to reveal the theme...drum roll please....

"Little Man" or "Lil Man" or "Mustache Bash"...not sure officially what I'm going to call it yet, but know for sure that there will be all kinds of little ties, bow ties and mustaches in plaids, stripes and polka dots for my little guys 1st birthday party! At first I was thinking about doing a beach themed party since we have a crab theme in Sam's nursery, and then I decided to explore the milk & cookie party route, but again changed my mind to the tie & mustache theme, which is the plan I'm sticking with! After all, Sam's daddy does wear a tie to work everyday and what little boy doesn't want to grow up and be just like their daddy, so I thought this would be a super fun idea!

Now it's time to start thinking about the party invitations. I've got a cute idea for a photo shoot in mind if I can pull it off! Of course I have already been thinking about all the sugary goodness that I plan to bake, decorate and serve for all the guests! And I'm sure you guessed that there will definitely be some cookies involved from the cookie cutters above! So stay tuned as I continue to plan our little Sam's 1st birthday, I'll be sure to share little peaks along the way!
