Little Ricky has now been one for two weeks and I am just now getting around to posting pictures from our exciting birthday weekend. (Have I mentioned I'm a slacker?) I hope you've got plenty of time on your hands, because I have lots of pictures!
A few months ago I started browsing the internet looking for cute first birthday ideas. When I came across this adorable party I knew I'd be using lots of those ideas.
Okay, let's be honest, I basically stole this party. Thank God, the mom included where she got all of her cute accessories in her post!
The little boy in the post (who's birthday ideas I stole!) had an elephant theme. I thought about elephants, but Little Ricky has somehow ended up with a lot of giraffe things. There is, of course, his giraffe artwork over his changing table that he loves. He adores his Sophie the Giraffe toy. He has several stuffed giraffes, his mobile has a giraffe. Lots and lots of giraffes. So giraffes it was!
Because Little Ricky's birthday was on a Friday and our party wasn't until Saturday, we also did a little picnic party in the park on his actual b-day with some of his little baby friends. It was a muggy, hot day, but there were cupcakes involved so everyone was happy!
Now I'm off to troll the internet to find ideas to borrow/steal for his 2nd birthday!
P.S. I can't say enough nice things about Stell & Livi and Dani Notes Stationery! I emailed them with my giraffe ideas and they both more than delivered! Thank you both for helping make this birthday so special! And thanks also to the Koehler Family whose elephant party was a great inspiration for our giraffe party!
