In May Bear turned 1! It’s hard to believe that he is such a big boy already. Josh and I threw him a little party for family and some close friends. More than anything I just wanted an excuse to decorate and feed people. We aren’t very extravagant people so we wanted something simple, but fun. I think it turned out great and everyone seemed to enjoy themselves.
Food table! Please disregard the super wrinkled table cloth.
Milk bar! We got milk-faced for sure.
I made Bear his own cake.
The easiest and super yummiest homemade cake ever. Recipe to follow on another post. I also made the two cake stands, with help from this blog, out of Salvation Army finds.
We covered a couple of old window frames in some of our favorite pics of the little dude. Top left is the best.
Josh found these canvas letters which were perfect for the entryway table. Guests signed Bear’s baby book in the 1st Birthday section. And what birthday party would be complete without a giant bowl of gummie bears with to-go cups?
Prepare yourself for the following onslaught of preciousness.
Massage the cake…love the cake.
He was a little timid at first.
He got the hang of it.
He’s a sharer.
Happy Birthday Bear!
