About a week and a half ago, we threw Ryan's first birthday party. I had WAY too much fun with this one. The invites were stinking adorable. My mom did them and I'm hoping to put pictures up of them on here soon.
In the meantime, here are some pictures of the party.
|Clown Noses, Ringmaster Mustaches, Jr. Ringmaster Mustaches, and door prize for a iTunes gift card!|
|Entry display and ticket booth.|
|One of my best friends did face painting. The kids loved it!|
|Duck Matching Game.|
|Play games, win tickets, buy prizes. Yay!|
|Who doesn't love sand art?|
|Water and lemonade. Refreshing on a summer afternoon in AZ.|
|My cousin and his cute fiance made balloon animals for the kids. It was a HUGE hit!|
|This was probably my favorite part of the party: the concession sign.|
|If you're wondering...yes, that is a curious George doll. And yes, the shirt does say "Curious Ryan Jess" on it. Courtesy of my mom and dad. Oh, and he is sitting in a cute, red truck.|
|I had to steal my "RYAN" letters from the nursery for the party. They were the right colors. Yay!|
|My last minute addition of a "Baby Food" station was a hit with the parents.|
|My hot hubby working the popcorn machine!|
|Candy/Cupcake station. AKA...you're-welcome-parents-for-giving-your-kids-a-sugar-high-station.|
|I had to bring a gumball machine. I mean, c'mon. They're just too cute!|
|DIY photo booth.|
|Bean bag toss.|
|These cupcakes were to die for. No, I did not make them. My mom and my cousin Casey did. So delish!|
|I love my birthday boy!|
|He enjoyed it right from the get-go.|
Thanks to everyone who came and supported us! And a special thanks to all those who helped! I super appreciate it!
