For M’s 1st Birthday, I decided to go with a goldfish theme. Goldfish are cute and so is M. Honestly, I have no idea why I landed on that idea, but when it came to me, I just went with it, as many of my creative geniuses go…there really wasn’t much to do for this par-tay, as it was just close family and no little guests to entertain.
After I found a cute 1st birthday hat, goldfish shirt and some invites on etsy, I pretty much did the rest myself…making the high chair design out of different color ribbon tied on some twine. We took M’s smash cake pics early at JCP so we’d have them to display at the party (and they made my thank-you’s already!). I also found this cute banner at Kara’s Party Supply and added some pics of M as he grew to each pennant.
The food theme was anything “orange”. I served pulled pork sandwiches with wheat and white buns, cole slaw, orange slices, carrot and celery cups w/ ranch dressing, cheetos and sun chips, goldfish crackers and sixlet candy. For dessert, M got to dig into his smash cake (courtesy of Craigs Cake Shop) as the rest of us ate some orange and blue cupcakes.
M had fun opening his gifts. Can’t believe he is 1 year old already!
Happy 1st Birthday, Myles! Hope you had fun! We love you so much!
