Rush turned one back in November, and I’m just now posting the pictures- yikes, sorry! We love you just as much, little boy!
We decided to have the party in our apartment, with his little playgroup friends. Of course I still wanted to make it special– and I was so lucky that some of my daughter’s dance class mom friends really helped us out. It was amazing!
Here’s the invitation:
I had a variety of honeycomb balls and made hot air balloons and decorated them. I strung them up in front of our long window to make them look like they were in the sky, and added clouds in the window to add to the effect.
I decorated the entry way with a new born picture and a recent picture, a banner, and the take away sunshine inflatables. Not to mention the #1 balloon!
We also created a photo opportunity of a hot air balloon, with a basket and balloons.
It’s cuter with kids in it!
For activities we had a thumbprint decoration corner– they decorated their own hot air balloons (on a kids table provided by a dance mom)! We also had a ball pit (provided by another dance mom!), and a hot air balloon themed book for story time.
And… the cake. My husband made it and it turned out really well.
Although Rush got a banana cupcake instead! He seemed to like it (Once we pulled it apart).
Overall, it was a great success! The kids had fun and Rush felt celebrated!
