I’ve had such a fun time the past few days planning and crafting Zachary’s first birthday party. Zachary loves books, so I thought it was fitting to do a Dr. Seuss theme.
We had green eggs and ham, Thing 1 and Thing 2 cupcakes, lots of fish for “One Fish, Two Fish…,” some beautiful cookies and a beautiful cake. Here are a few of the details.
We are so blessed that Zachary has so many people in his life that love him, which is why we had a HUGE party with lots of people there. It meant so much to me to see my son surrounded by SO much love. He has no idea how much God has blessed him.
On another note, I have to thank several people. Sara, thank you for the beautiful cookies. You are SUCH a good friend. Tori, thank you for basically moving in with me to help me get everything ready, not to mention running errands. You are my rock. Mom and Jennifer, thank you for picking up the cake and letting me boss you around while we set everything up. Melissa, thank you for taking ALL the party pictures. I will be eternally grateful. Oh, and thanks for the firewood.
Jenny, thanks for helping me clean up, letting me steal your butter, for donating your Dr. Seuss hat, and loving our son so much. We are blessed to have you in our lives. Mandy, thank you for the dishes and the boa. Our photo booth was much better because of it. Katie, thank you so much for donating your tent with the balls in.
Seriously- we are SO overwhelmed with the generosity of the people in our lives.
Here are a few candid shots from the party. The girls decided they wanted to do a smash cake like Zachary did. I think they regretted it after they did it.
It was such a nice day outside, so I set up a mini photobooth in the backyard, and Melissa was sweet enough to take all these pictures. I love our friends and family!
Tami and Dan– we missed you so much. The Dr. Seuss theme made me a little sentimental, as I knew we was always a favorite of yours (Dan). I can’t wait to celebrate next year with you guys. We love you.
