This past weekend we had Jack Jack’s first birthday party! We had just a ‘small’ family cookout at the house. I wanted to keep it simple with so much going on in our lives lately. Since the weather’s still nice we put burgers and dogs on the grill, made broccoli salad, macaroni and cheese, and our families brought a few more sides. Jack loves macaroni and cheese so it was perfect for him! That specific day was also my parents 50th wedding anniversary so our dessert was a cake to celebrate that. I made Jack his very own smash cake! I wasn’t sure how he’d handle it. He doesn’t get sugar often, and any cake he’s ever had has been sharing with someone else. We gave him a brownie on his actual birthday and he was very apprehensive. He eventually got into tho.
I also wanted to go simple with the decorations. First birthday are really more for us than the kids, right!? We had a slight where the wild things are theme so I made a little king of wild things sign for his cake and high chair. Some balloons behind him finished us off! Our outfits served as the rest of the decorations! They’re from the etsy shop ollie and penny. I have tons of pictures, but they’re all blurry. bummer. Everyone signed a copy of his wild things book for him and left memories and wishes for him to look at later in life! And he got lots and lots of presents!
Happy Birthday my sweet goofy boy! Mama loves you the most.
