Toddler Tuesday

What better way to start Toddler Tuesday off then with a recap of Matthew’s 1st Birthday? It was in March but Top Notch Mom was under construction at the time so I wasn’t able to share it with you.

I had started planning & preparing for his 1st Birthday at the end of January. I wanted it to be perfect and I had a lot of ideas in mind. Etsy became my best friend and go to place for everything I needed. We decided to do a safari them which only seemed fitting since that’s what we’ve went with since Matthew was born.

Before I get into his birthday party, I wanted to share one of my favorite things. I found these monthly onesie stickers on Etsy from StickersPlus and every month on the 8th I would sit Matthew on the chair in his room for a photo. It was amazing to see all of the changes from month to month.

Months 1-10, I will update 1-12 once I put it together

I designed the invitations using Vistaprint

I displayed all of these monthly pictures on a safari banner from JRCreativeDesigns:

For the party favors I went with the jungle pops from MandiesCandies:

I had searched on Pinterest for cake ideas and when I found one I liked I knew I had to recreate it. I had someone make the cakes and then I used fondant animals for cake toppers from Edible Designs By Letty:

I like to throw parties and one of the signature things I always have is a candy bar. I used safari animal cards from Angies Designz to display the names of the items I had on the candy bar:

At the party, Matthew wore a custom onesie from Things Very Special:

As far as decorations we got a high chair banner & a Happy Birthday banner from Get The Party Started:

I started a Project Life Album for Matthew so I made little cards for all of the guests to sign and leave a little note for Matthew that he could look back on:

  1. […] Before I get to these yummy Peanut Butter Fluff cookies I have to share that Matthew is going to be 2 tomorrow.  It’s not something I ever thought I’d be emotional about, but who I am kidding? We’ve been prepping for this party the last couple of days, my #1 goal tomorrow is not to stress the small stuff and enjoy being with my family and friends. If you’d like to see my post about Matthew’s 1st Birthday Party, you can find it here. […]
