Brown Bear Brown Bear Birthday Party

Happy Friday!

Today I want to share with you my son’s Brown Bear Brown Bear first birthday party.  I can’t believe my little guy is one now!  This year has gone by so fast.  We had a great time celebrating his little life this weekend!  My mom and sister (Alisa) came early on Saturday to help with the preparations.  They totally rescued me!  I had a lot of the decorations done ahead of time, but with a sick and fussy boy all week there was still much to be done before the party on Sunday.  I love to craft and decorate but I’m not a huge fan of cooking or baking.  Luckily my mom and sister are awesome cooks and it turns out they are also amazing cake decorators!  They went shopping and made all the food for me!  (Check back on Monday for my mom’s delicious baked bean recipe!)  I don’t know what I would have done without them!

Here they are working away making the most darling bear cake for my little man!

And here is the finished product!  Isn’t it amazing?!



So onto some pictures of the party:




My brother made this brown bear for me.  He is a talented artist!  I think it turned out so great!!  It was my favorite decor piece!  Thanks Drew!

I got the idea for the napkin rings from here.  Jennifer of Little Black Press threw her daughter a very cute Brown Bear birthday party.

Remember when Alisa and I went to A Thoughtful Place’s HomeGoods blogger party?  Well I scored some awesome party supplies that day which you can also see here.  I used the napkins you see in the picture above and the tissue to make the tissue balls you see below.

Luke had a blast opening his gifts!





He loved the cake!  Alisa also made him a very cute party hat!







All our guests left with a little party favor.  I got the idea from pinterest and Alisa made the tags!



It seems like just yesterday my baby was this little! (Photography by Sarah Tolson….She’s awesome! Go check out her website!)




Can’t believe it’s been a year!  He brings such joy to our lives.  The love that I feel is indescribable.  Happy Birthday, sweet boy!
