My mom made this incredible banner to hang outside on our screened in porch. It was one of my favorite decorations! The tiny details really made this pop. All of the products used are from Stampin' Up! as well.
These cute lanterns from Target's party section hung over our drink table. My mom embellished two of them with washi tape and scrapbook paper- we LOVED the way these turned out!
I ordered orange, gray and teal straws from Etsy and grabbed orange solo cups at Party City and found the orange striped napkins at Michael's. I love using mason jars and filling them with grocery store flowers for small touches throughout the house. This is an inexpensive way to add a little something extra to tablescapes, bar areas and end tables. Even the bathroom had a mason jar filled with a few white gerber daisies.
With the help of my parents and my professional chef Godmother, we came up with a menu that was both easy to prep and cook, and also impressive to party guests. If I have learned anything with party planning, it's that making 4-5 items in bulk is much easier than making several different appetizers and smaller bites. This menu is perfect for a Summer party!
I think this moment was one of the highlights of Will's first year of life!
Andi also made funfetti cupcakes for dessert! Simple and sweet.
...and the after party was just as fun!
Special thanks to my parents and sisters for ALL of their help- we couldn't have pulled this off without them. And much love and many thanks to all of our dear family and friends who came to celebrate with us! We love you all.
