This past weekend was my little bug's first birthday. The party turned out to be one of my favorite projects to date- I pretty much went crazy with making the decorations and turning my baby's world into a retro-baby-blue-and-red themed bash. I love using textures and mix and matching patterns, especially for babies! I really wanted my little man to love what he saw, and with a few babies attending the party, I wanted them to be able to touch and feel to their little hearts' content. Enter: yarn, felt, soft squishy balls, and a giant red balloon!
A giant hat calls for a giant smash-cake, naturally:
And the lil man in all his glory:
Looks like we succeeded in making for a happy boy....
Or maybe it was just the sugar high?
