One of my favorite things about having a little boy is dressing him up like a little man…hats, ties, bowties, suspenders, and argyle patterns. When his first birthday was approaching, I immediately knew a little man’s theme was perfect. It was probably the easiest children’s birthday I’ve put together since most props were right out of his closet 🙂 Nothing says “boy” like blue so I used an all shades of blue color palette with grays and white and combined it with argyle prints and patterns.
The sweets table included all sorts of themed sweets such as tie shaped cookies, desserts with mustache spoons, Cake, cupcakes, chocolate bars, rice krispies treats, gummies, and pretzels.
Guest tables were decorated with custom made argyle print table runners and bowtie folded napkins. Center pieces always add a great touch so used table signs, flowers, popcorn cones, and scattered derby hats for the children to wear.
What’s a first birthday party without a classic cake smash? The birthday boy enjoyed smashing his very own cake and loved making a mess. Luckily, the mess was contained in his very own decorated high chair.
Children love to always take a piece of the party home, so on their way out each little guest received our custom made party bags filled with party favors such as bubble bottles with our personalized labels.
I’m a big fan of all the little details that bring the theme together, such as banners, bottle labels, and the birthday boy’s outfit.
