Let me start out by saying …
I CANNOT believe my baby is ONE <insert crying face here>
I seriously cannot get over how fast this first year has gone. This little boy has changed our lives so much, and we are obsessed! He is the sweetest little ginger boy with the most beautiful blue eyes. He is smart, head strong, funny and down right loud when he wants to be 🙂 I just wish I could freeze time – he is so fun and we are loving watching him evolve into his own little person.
We decided for Logan’s first birthday we would have a fun fall theme …
LOGAN’S FIRST RODEO
I started out by making all the thank you goody bags for the kids. I found theses awesome beach pales for $1 each as they were on the summer clearance at Party City. I then filled them with tissue paper, cowboy rubber ducky, tambourine & snack that reflected their age.
Luckily the weather was awesome at the end of September so we were able to host the party outside. I got this awesome backdrop from Open a Party <online> for $9.99. I then got the hay from a local home hardware store!

I ordered the balloons online from the same store (Open a Party) because they were super cheap so I thought I would save myself money by getting my own Helium tank ….. WRONG!!!! I will not be doing that again. I ended up needing TWO tanks lol… <$60 in total> I know I know, it’s insane… and then they didn’t even last till morning <insert even more disappointment lol> however, I ended up tying them around the deck and they still looked great. But – Lesson Learned!!!!!!
Since our theme was based around FALL (which I love) I thought I would hit up a local farm and get some nice apples and make Sangria!
(3 bottles white wine, 1 bottle sparkling apple cider, little bit of gingerale & cut up apples)
I had the outfit Logan wore home from the hospital framed ❤ so added that to the table as well
I set up a table with all the Goody bags for the kids who came to the party!
I made this milestone poster for Logan’s birthday. Just took a roll of brown paper that I got from winners, and some markers. Then added his monthly pictures at the bottom
How cute is this wanted poster???? ❤ such a cute little cowboy! I printed off some paper ones and put them around outside as well.
My best friend is pretty talented and painted this awesome cut out of a cowboy so we made sure to get lots of pictures with it! isn’t it hilarious?? I just love it!
I got this AMAZING cake & smash cake from a lady in Newcastle – you need to check out her website! I will be ordering all my cakes from her from now on. It not only looked good, it was delicious!!!!

Logan absolutely loved the cake, he ate almost half of it haha, and then tried to get me with it!!!
I got Logan a onesie that said Logan’s First Rodeo – it was SOOO cute!! and unfortunately I don’t have any great pictures of him only wearing that, but here is one from him opening presents.
I ordered it from Hayden Rose Collection – she was so fast and made it within the week for me and is located in Whitby! The onesie was $21 and I would definitely recommend ordering from her.

And of course our adorable Dog had to get in on the action too 😉
I ordered the majority of the decorations from this website: https://openaparty.com/open-a-party-shop/default.php
they have flat rate shipping in CANADA, and they have so much to choose from that is so cheap!!! I will definitely be ordering from them again in the future.
