Oh did I have a blast planning Miles’ first birthday party! I decided on a Camp Theme, “Camp Miles” and we held it at our home, which I felt would make it special and intimate and allow me lots of creative freedom.
I went with a color scheme of greens, pops of gold, and black and white plaid to give off a campy vibe. I incorporated greenery, vines and wood signs into every nook and craney of our home. I loved adding DIY touches everywhere I could. I wanted each kid to feel special and the party to be totally unique to Miles.
We had Music Man Dave come to play camp songs, the “The Meanie Weanie“ Hot Dog Truck was dishing out amazing gourmet hot dogs (the mac & cheese was a huge hit!) and we had Suzy from Lumi Photography there to help us capture all of the special moments.
