Party Recap

Such a special and exciting day! My son turned one and I knew I would be going all out for this special occasion. I decided on a vintage baseball theme. I loved how the dessert table turned out and how all the fun details came together. I ordered the printables from Your Memories Captured on how they pulled the party together. All the guests signed a baseball for my son and I created a "hall of fame" with pictures of him 1-12 months. My brother dressed up as a "get your peanuts, popcorn" concession vendor and passed out fresh popped popcorn and bags of was one of the highlights of the party I must say! :) Such a fun day and memorable day!

    Hello Laura! Thank you for your comment! I've have all the details listed under hightlights and also where I ordered the printables. Let me know what else I can help with. :) A little tip- I always create an excel spreadsheet for my parties and list out each area (dessert table, food, activities for the kids, favors, etc) on different tabs and then I list out the the supplies I need to buy for each area, or if I already have something I can use and any DIY projects I want to make.
