What do you do when you're little boy is turning one and his nickname is Mr Jack? You throw him a Little Man birthday party! Like his big sister, it seems Jack had a color theme his first year. Everything from his nursery to his outfits were all navy and grey so it made sense that his party would be the same. The day was filled with bow ties, amazing food, and so many family and friends.
A first birthday party wouldn't be complete without a monthly photo display. We created a fun balloon garland that greeted guests in the foyer and attached square photos to the balloons. Monthly Party Circles from our Little Man Collection to add the month completed the look.
We always love when guests get in on the theme of the party. Bow ties that we attached to safety pins were available to anyone who wanted to join in on the fun.
I couldn't forget the little girls, so some were attached to hair clips too.
The dessert table backdrop was a labor of love. Jack's daddy created the wood wall out of pallets that he stained. It also doubled as his cake smash backdrop.
I chose to have an assortment of desserts - including cupcakes topped with bow ties, and sugar cookies personalized with the birthday boy's name. Rice Krispie treats dipped in chocolate and delicious cake pops both adorned with more bow ties came from the very talented The New York Cakepopery.
The drink station featured Mister Jack Tea and LeMANade. We decorated water bottles with waterproof labels again from our Little Man Party Collection.
Another fun and easy detail from the party included the bow tie PB&J sandwiches that the kids loved.
We decorated his highchair with an assortment of balloons from the shop including a confetti filled balloon and a giant #1 balloon. Below is a full resource list of where I purchased all the products used for his party.
