My Son’s First Birthday Party!
Oh my goodness, my son is turning 1 this month!! 😮 This year has passed by so quickly, it’s hard to believe we are coming up on his first birthday. A couple of weeks ago I realized his birthday was a month away and I needed to figure out what I was going to do.
We are currently living with my in-laws in Kingston, WA while building our house in Leavenworth, WA. This makes planning a party a little interesting. With our busy home-building schedule and everyone’s summer sports and travel plans, we decided to have two parties, one with my side of the family and another with my husband’s side of the family.
As for the party itself, I decided to go with an outdoor adventure theme. I like to keep decorations simple, but I also want everything to come together and look just right so sometimes I get a little carried away. 😉 But I had so much fun figuring out what I was going to do and putting it all together and I couldn’t be happier with the way it turned out. 😀
Let the Birthday Party Begin
Last week we had his “first” first birthday party with my side of the family and I want to share some of the pictures with you now instead of waiting until after his second party at the end of July. We had the party at my parent’s house and I used a portion of their kitchen island for the decorations and the trail mix snack bar. The kids, and the adults, loved the trail mix snack bar – It was a huge hit!! 😀
Here is the sneak peek of my son’s “first” first birthday party. Enjoy! 😀

Party Shopping List
Here are the decorations I bought for the party. I made sure to only buy decorations I could use for both parties (except for the baking cups), as well as for future parties or decoration around the house. I don’t like spending money on something I will throw out after one use. No thank you!
Additional notes about a couple items purchased above:
- I bought a large and a small wood crate and then stained them myself. (Stain Brand: Varathane, Color: Carrington)
- I used plastic liners in the galvanized buckets so the food doesn’t touch the metal
I hope you enjoyed my son’s first birthday party sneak peek. 😀
