Logan’s First Birthday

29 Sep

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

Logans 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.

I made a banner for Logan’s highchair from my banner kit that I got on sale at Party City, and then just cut strips of white tissue paper and tied them onto the string.IMG_2745

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!!!!!!IMG_2784

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 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

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 😉
