My son Myles first birthday party was such a fun theme to plan. I designed the invitations first, and everything else just fell into place. I have been wanting to do a woodland theme for a while and what better time than the first birthday! The decorations were all handmade, most by me and the adorable chalkboard art by a dear friend. Adding in some great custom made products by local, and not so local, vendors. It turned out more perfect than I had imagined. I used very natural, rustic pieces mixed in with some fun printables from my shop. I hope it inspires you as much as it did me!
What People Ate
Brunch was the food theme. I served bagels, donuts, fruit and yogurt, breakfast sausage squares, mini pancake/banana/strawberry skewers and cinnamon roll pops.
What People Drank
I served waters, orange juice, juice boxes and iced coffee.
I can't leave out the yummy homemade cupcakes topped with beautiful fondant toppers(not made by me) and amazingly gorgeous cookies(also not made by me).
Favors were little cellophane bags filled with yummy s'more fixin's.

The Sweet Life Cakery/Kelly LeVasseur
I had never worked with Kelly before, but had seen her cakes at several parties we attended. I just had to have her design for me. She did an amazing job on the Fox smash cake and woodland animal cupcake toppers. All I had to do was email her my invite and she designed right from that. I will definitely be using her again!
Little Lotus Organics
Annie was such an amazing woman to work with. I found her adorable pants on ETSY and had to order a pair for Myles to wear at his party. They matched the invite perfectly. I emailed Annie to ask if she could tell me where the fabric was from so I could order more for the table. She went an extra step and found the fabric online for me! I ended up buying the coordinating fabric and it looked great on the tables. Not to mention her product is very well made and extremely cute!
Sheady Baby and Co.
The adorable "roast Mallows" shirt Myles wore is from a great company with cute products!
Litte Baker Fufu
Kelsey has made several cookies for several of my parties before. She is a local baker who makes the most amazing tiny works of art! She took the invite and table fabric and used those to design the adorable cookies for the party. I love her work and if you are local check her out!!
