We celebrated the big boy’s first birthday this past weekend with a Big Boy themed party, paying homage to a Michigan legend, Big Boy restaurant.
A simple burger/fry/mini malt menu fed our crew, and a trail of favorite photos fed our memories.
I’ve always loved planning parties–especially ones for my kids, but I’m loving more the challenge of combining meaningful details with simplicity to create an intimate celebration.
I found Dash’s adorable checkered pants on Etsy to complete his Big Boy look (minus the hamburger tray). He thought a little bruiser on his forehead would go nicely with his outfit, so he arranged a date with the tile floor the day before his party.
More party bits:
I found these cute party favors at the dollar store last week–joke condiment bottles.
Everyone fell for it and dodged the fake mustard string.
Brett’s dad took the cake smashing photos–an event that started with timid little frosting swipes and ended with full blown cake slapping, a bath and a pre-bed sugar buzz. I haven’t seen them all yet but he did send me this one this weekend, and I love it.
So thankful for this year, this boy and this weekend of celebrating him.
