{Henry's First Birthday Party}

As most of you know, Henry's first birthday was this past Saturday. We were so happy to have our friends and family over on Sunday to help celebrate "King Henry," which was the theme I decided on. We actually kept it pretty low key. I decorated a cake table, but we tried to keep everything else pretty simple. We had lots of comfort food that we just served buffet style and our house certainly isn't big enough for all the guests we invited so we just said, "pile on in and make yourselves at home!"

I made the fabric garland and the one banner. I also drew the paper glitter crowns and cut them out. Oh and I did that silly little chalkboard as well!
The cake was done by the lovely All Cakes by Rach. She's local and affordable and I swear everyone kept asking who made the cake because it was so moist and yummy. I had never used her before and I'm so glad I tried her out. It was honestly some of the best cake we've ever had and she was so wonderful to work with. If you're local I highly recommend giving her a shot!
My go-to cardboard letters, I just spray painted these gold.
I whipped up some of my tissue pom poms to hang from the ceiling.
I was lucky enough to work with Maddie of Grace and Madd Paperie to make these super custom (and super cheesy, per my request haha) invitations for the party. I love working with Maddie, she's so sweet and her prices can't be beat. Thanks again, girl!
Henry wasn't really into opening gifts, surprise surprise haha. He hung out and checked it all out though. Above he's holding the bear that my best friend got him. It says "Will you be my ring bearer?" She was recently engaged and Henry said yes! :)
 We had such a wonderful turn out and Henry was a champ. I was kinda surprised that he didn't cry when we sang happy birthday to him. Then of course after yesterday's post I couldn't believe that he didn't rip right into his smash cake. I don't think he's into having an audience. ;) Can't say I blame him.

Thank you AGAIN to all of our family and friends for joining us to celebrate Henry, he just loved it!
And thank you Stacy for all of the sweet snaps!!!
