Happy belated 4th of July! The husby and I ended up having a quiet celebration at home…it reminded us of our 1st married Independence Day. Our honeymoon cruise docked early that morning, we kissed Texas soil (literally!), drove all day, and arrived home in time for….a nap. 😛 We missed the fireworks, but is it awkward to say we made some of our own? *wink*blush*couldn’t help myself*
What I realllly wanted to share today are a few pictures from my adorable nephew’s 1st birthday party. He turned one back in May, and my sister-in-law turned me loose on the décor & party planning. We were short on time and $$$, but I think in the end our Little Man had a birthday party he could be proud of & a fun time was had by all!
Presenting…The Little Mister Mustache Bash!
Mustaches & ties were provided for all the guests to wear…
Our color theme was black, lime, and teal…I found free printables to match the theme, decorated with pics of our Little Mister, and made a pretty darn stinkin’ cute banner. (Thanks to this party I also fell in love with washi tape. Now I’m obsessed.)
Real men eat cake.
The drink station…striped paper straws are a must for any legitimate pinterest-inspired party. 😉
I love a good mustache bash!
Cousin Matthew provided the entertainment…a magic show…with the help of his little assistant. (Check out her shirt btw…too fun!)
Of course there were presents…(look at those chubby cheeks! Agh!)
And a photo booth…
And one super cute & loving big sister to the little mister. (This picture makes my heart melt!)
And of course, there was cake. (Could that birthday boy be any more adorable?! I just don’t think so…)
The little man & his happy family!
KEEP CALM & SQUEEZE THE LITTLE MISTER’S IN YOUR LIFE!
P.S. – My in-laws hired a photographer to come & capture the fun…didn’t the pics turn out great?! If you live in my area & are interested in her info, leave me a comment below!
