colorful “royal” 1st birthday

this past weekend we celebrated wesley’s 1st birthday with our close family and friends! we went with a royal theme since he’s the only one in the family to carry on the family name ( my husband only has sisters and girl cousins! ) ! we didn’t want it to be fancy since it’s still a 1st birthday so we included animals and lots of color  :) i LOVE throwing parties so it was fun to plan this for him. everyone made crowns to wear when they arrived and has royal jewels ( aka ring pops! ) to wear. and it was a beautiful day out ( ironically on the day he was born it was a chilly 32F!! ) so everyone played games outside while all the kiddos ran around. i think my favorite part was the faces of him from all through the first year as cupcake toppers! haha

his party was also featured on my favorite 100 layer cake-let!


confetti, straws, animal heads: target

crown cookies: laura’s cookies
