River celebrated his first birthday on November 17 2019! I still can't believe that my baby is ONE like WTF where did time go? Planning his party was actually pretty tough, well the toughest thing was picking a theme. River LOVES animals, so when I saw the theme party animal I knew it was the right theme. I was going to go for a very neutral colour scheme, but Luke was against that haha! He wanted colour and lots of it. So, I brought it we had one colourful first birthday lol. Here are some snaps of the birthday party.
Our giraffe (Luke got me this 8 years ago and we named hm Garth) is ready to party.
All the tissue paper shape things are from walmart.ca
The happy birthday sign is also from walmart.ca
The cake and cookie trays are from Homesense.ca
Pom Poms are dollarstore.ca
Animals are all thrifted! I think I got them all for under $10 which is such a steal!!!!
Cookies are from our family friend Jackie - she makes the most amazing cookies XO
River Cake Topper is from https://avalonsunshinehq.com/ Working with Erica was amazing and she really brought my idea to life!
Ballon Garland is handmade - I hated doing this hahah next time might get it done LOL
The cutest little birthday boy.
My nephew was taking photos and most of the pictures the cake is in front of Rivers face LOL He tried <3
So that was River's first birthday. I cannot freaking believe my little angel baby is one. We had a beautiful party (Nov 16) and went to our hospital on his birthday for World Prematurity Day and celebrated being born premature on world premature day. We are so blessed XO
