First Birthday Party

We celebrated Jack turning one this past weekend. Mine and Ty's immediate family all lives in one town (except for his youngest sister), so we decided it would be much easier for everyone to have Jack's birthday party there. We loaded up all of the party supplies and spent the weekend at home. It was a great celebration full of family and lots of love for our boy! Expect a ton of pictures to follow!

Since Jack was born around the Fourth of July I knew that I wanted to do red, white, and blue for this first birthday. We went with a crab theme and did a seafood boil.
I designed the invitations, address labels, and envelope liners.

The cake and cupcakes came from Sam's. I added the ric rac border around the cake and made the bunting.

The buckets were filled with red or blue bubbles, a punching ball balloon, and red & blue glow sticks. I used the same label that is around the jar of straws around the bubbles. I forgot to take a picture of those.

It was hard to get a good picture of his monthly photos.
