The Details: Thomas’ 1st Birthday

I had such a good time planning Thomas’ first birthday party! Although I almost had a meltdown when I couldn’t find a plain white long-sleeved t-shirt to have embroidered :) Since one of Thomas’ favorite activities is eating The Very Hungry Caterpillar was a very fitting party theme.

Invitations: Since we invited family and a few friends that I see on a weekly basis I hand delivered the invitations in mason jar. The party details were printed on a green leaf and each invite had a caterpillar inside.

The more I use my Silhouette the more I love it! I used it to make the leaf invitations and the jar toppers.

We had a giant strawberry and caterpillar to welcome our party guests. I made it using a red poster board, green scrapbook paper, a paper mache 1 and scanned the book cover and cut out the caterpillar. I still have it up because I think it’s cute.

We had all kinds of different caterpillars!

I loved going back through all our pictures and picking out one of each month. It makes your realize just how much your baby grows in one year.

Caterpillar cupcake. I can only take credit for the fondant and platter embellishments.

Above the food table I hung paper lanterns to make a caterpillar and taped on cardstock eyes & nose.

We ate all the fruit…

and junk that the very hungry caterpillar ate.

Dana made the cutest {and most delicious} ice cream cone cookies.

I made Thomas a small smash cake – which we all know he barely touched.

There were lots of yummy cupcakes!
