Our color scheme was black, red, and yellow. I got my ideas from Pinterest and made (with the help of some friends) all the decorations. Homemade decorations are so much cheaper; plus I kept everything so I can reuse in the future. The setting was our back porch. It had rained all week long so the ground was wet. We had rented a bounce house but cancelled a few days before the party because our backyard was a swamp. Even though the ground was wet, the weather was perfect for an outside party. I love that my kids have springtime birthdays so it's not too hot or too cold (usually).
|I did this for Brady's first birthday too...love a decorated table or highchair.|
|The party was at 2pm on Sunday afternoon, so I knew I didn't need a lot of food (people ate lunch after church before coming over).|
|Six smash cake for six sweethearts! :)|
I know 3 year olds typically don't do smash cakes, but I couldn't leave Brady out. He enjoyed having his own cake.
|I made a 7 Layered Dip and put the olives in the shape of a Mickey head.|
|A friend of mine from church makes cakes, I gave her a picture of this cake (that I found on Pinterest) and she did a fantastic job of making the same cake... Best part, the cake was delicious!!|
|I thought about having Steven grill hot dogs, but after some consideration, we decided pigs-in-a-blanket would be much easier and economical.|
|Each kid had his/her own head to showcase how much they've changed over the year.|
|Brady's picture from his first birthday.|
|Pictures of me and Steven at our first birthday parties. It's a tradition to have these out for my kids 1st birthday party (I did it for Brady's 1st birthday too).|
|I ordered these Mickey head balloons online (a package of 6). By the time the party started, there were only 4 left.|
|Mickey heads were very easy to make. Just buy styrofoam balls and paint them black, use toothpicks to stick the ears on. I used decretive straws for the stick part. We painted the clay pots.|
