I am so excited to feature Jackson's first birthday party held this past weekend. Jackson's mom contacted me to create some of my favorite Sock Monkey decorations and was so sweet to allow me to share them with you. I especially love this party because of the simplicity - a great inspiration for parents feeling overwhelmed or pressured to host an over the top event. Particularly for a first birthday which is always the most stressful! A beautiful and loving celebration at it's finest...
I wish someone had filled me in on this idea when my own babies were infants! Joanna featured a first year photo banner which she clipped a photo from each month of Jackson's first year. Each photo shows Jackson wearing a onesie with "1 month", "2 months" etc. A perfect keepsake and DIY project in one!
A cupcake tower, custom wrapped water bottles, and high chair with a custom sock monkey banner look just precious sitting with the birthday boy's cake and smash cake - which were decorated with the same light blue, chocolate brown, and red argyle pattern as the decorations!
A few more party photos because I just can't resist the cuteness! Sock monkey party favors...
and the ADORABLE birthday boy digging into his cake!
There were so many adorable photos from this party, I had such a hard time choosing! Mom and dad did a FABULOUS job and I am honored to have been a part of Jackson's big day. Thank you!!!
I also want to thank Joanna for the super kind words she had to say about working with Peas & Thank You's on her blog. It means the world to me to be able to work with such amazing moms like YOU!!
