We had a blast celebrating our son’s first birthday! The theme this year was a “Little Man Mustache Bash,” which was pretty hilarious! I have never seen so many little mustaches all at one time…I cut out about 200 of them to be exact!

Here are the details from his party….

This was the main table display that held the sweet treats, drinks, and cups, plates, etc. I wanted this to be the main focal point of the party, so I used lots of color, texture elements through layering different types of papers and materials and placing items on the table at different heights to create interest to the eye.

I used mason jars for the adults to drink from and paper cups for the kiddos and glued or taped a little mustache to the front of them for fun.

Here is the party favor table. I made thank you goody bags for the kids out of basic brown paper bags with a mustache glued to the front and filled with candy. The mason jars on the left are filled with different sized mustaches and eye glasses to wear during the party and to take pictures at the photobooth.

This is the photobooth sign I made in picmonkey. All of the art for the party was created in picmonkey, including the labels, cupcake toppers, and signs.

This was our DIY photobooth we made out of a plastic table cloth hung on the wall with a DIY tie banner layered over the top of it. I brought out a chair from the house and tied some balloons around it to create a fun backdrop to take goofy pictures!

More goodies for the kiddos! These prizes were purchased at the dollar store in the toy section and are perfect for birthday parties and kids games. Plus, this way you make sure you don’t break the bank but can still allow the kids to have lots of fun!

I also put together these little goody bags full of jelly beans and gummy bears….I know, I know a Moms worst nightmare for her kids haha but they looked cute and everyone loved the sweet treats! I created the labels on my computer using a combination of picmonkey and Word and printed them on normal labels you can purchase at Wal-Mart or your local office supply store. The clear plastic goody bags were purchased from Hobby Lobby.

Cupcake liners make the perfect holders for animal crackers!

I made a 12 month banner to showcase our little man through each month of his first year. I made the month labels using a Circuit machine which made this project super easy and cost effective. Picture were printed at Costco. The tissue poms were purchased from Hobby Lobby but you can easily make them yourself…I could do a tutorial on that if you want me to.

A fun view of the sweet treats table!

Chocolate covered raisins are a girls kids best friend, right? 

And here is Mr. Man himself! He was not thrilled about wearing the hat but I was able to snap a picture before he took it off. 

My friend Jordan and her sweet little boy joined in on the fun!


I created DIY color pages for the kids and set out a vintage tin filled with crayons. An easy peasy activity that even the adults enjoyed!

Here we are trying to get the boys together for a cute pic….my little man was more concerned about stealing everyone’s mustaches, so this is the best we could do. HAHA!

I made this simple over sized cupcake for little man’s smash cake. It is a chocolate base with vanilla butter cream frosting and chocolate sprinkles. 
Here are a couple pictures of us opening the birthday boy’s gifts. He had a blast and we thank everyone who was able to celebrate his special day with us!
And last, but certainly not least, here are a couple pictures from his 1 year photoshoot. Photos are courtesy of the lovely and talented Diana AriyaPhotography.

    That is the most adorable party I have ever seen. You incorporated so many creative ideas and it was so different from the average kids party.

    Thank you, ladies! This was by far one of my most favorite projects to work on this past year! I am so glad I took pictures because it isn’t like redoing a room where you can enjoy it after all the hard work. All the hard work that went into the party was enjoyed by everyone for a couple hours and then it was time to take the decorations down. I felt like I wanted to leave it up for weeks just because! haha.

    Hello to all, how is everything, I think every one is getting more from this web site,
    and your views are good designed for new viewers.

    Definitely believe that which you stated. Your favorite reason appeared to be on
    the net the easiest thing to be aware of. I say to you,
    I certainly get annoyed while people consider worries that they plainly don’t know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and defined out the whole thing without having side-effects , people could take a signal. Will probably be back to get more. Thanks
