Planning Henry's Big Bash!

Somehow I've blinked and my sweet baby boy is almost a whole year old. It felt like I was pregnant forever and here I am, about to become a mom to a toddler! My emotions are on overdrive with the thought of my mama's boy growing up. And as much as I wish that time would slow the F down, I know that the days, months and years are going to keep passing by so I need to do my best to enjoy each and every one.

I think one of the best parts of enjoying life is celebrating moments, especially the big ones and I definitely think that surviving 365 days of full-time mommy hood deserves a big bash! I'm trying (keyword trying) really hard to not let Henry's first birthday become over the top. I know he won't remember, it's silly to go crazy, we just moved.... I know all the reasons not to but I honestly just can't help myself! I just can't do any party on the small-scale. That being said, we are keeping the guest list small and the theme manageable. Also, don't be fooled by the use of "we" my husband is a mere bystander when it comes to my crazy party planning ways!

After way too much time on Pinterest I decided that Henry's first birthday should have the same theme as my baby shower - little man! When you search for "little man" themes on Pinterest you are hit with an onslaught of moustaches and since I hate moustaches (with the exception of Movember) we're keeping our little man theme classy with bow ties!

It all started with the perfect invite (spoiler to friends and family!)

And then the cutest garland

So yeah, I'm keeping it low-key... promise!
