Cooper’s 1st birthday party was on Saturday. We had a great time celebrating with family and friends! The theme of the party was owls, as you can tell by the top of the cake. The cake was made by my mom and she did such a fantastic job! Our decorations were all low cost and very simple.
I was very daring with our food and tried all new recipes. They were fantastic! I will be posting the recipes in the near future. The food went very quickly so it must have been good. We had Go-gurts and Organic chocolate milk for the kids, banana bread, fruit kabobs, quiche, gluten free oatmeal cakes, french toast casserole, and muffins from Costco. I purchased the plates, napkins, silverware, table cloths, and serving platters at Wal-mart. They were all priced very reasonably. The “Cooper’s Party” sign was made on my Cricut machine – very easy. The “Whooo is hungry” sign was made from wood and chalkboard paint, instructions here.
Owl treat bags, instructions here.
I kept the tables very simple. The homemade pinwheels were placed in a small baby food jar and filled with marbles. I had some owl and other animal cutouts that my mother-in-law had purchased at a teaching store.
We had such a great party for our little guy. So much fun making everything and spending time with our family and closest friends. We are so blessed to have two sweet little boys! I can’t believe Cooper is already a year old!
