Davey Turns 1!

I haven't blogged in what seems like forever as I've been busy with my now 1 year old boy!  Where does the time go?

I wanted to document his first birthday party and our theme which turned out just wonderfully, but in getting ready for the party I forgot to take pictures of each detail before people got here. :(

I still wanted to post the pictures for anyone looking for a cute theme for a kids party, specifically a little boy.  We got lucky because my husband happens to work for a construction company who was very generous in letting us borrow road signs, road barrels, road block etc.  This helped to keep the cost of the party low and looking super authentic! :)

Hope you enjoy the photos!

In the above photo you can see the plastic hard hats I gave as favors to each kid with a banner I made hanging above.  They were clipped on twine with mini clothes pins and added to the decor.  The tables we did in yellow and black and had caution tape down the center with balloons and an orange cone as the centerpieces.  I also had little cardboard too boxes sitting around each table.

This is a close up of the favor buckets.  All had a construction theme with road sign suckers, measuring"bubble" tape, a construction toy, construction tattoos, a caution bracelet, and stickers.  Each had custom tags that said "Thanks for coming, I had loads of fun" with a picture of a dump truck

Again, the hats and favors behind us

In this picture you can see one of the road signs and the cute cookies and juice boxes with a printout that said "fuel" on them

his cake was a hard hat
