Bennett’s First Birthday Party

A couple of weeks ago we celebrated Bennett’s first birthday with family and friends. His theme was “Wild One” and let me tell you, it is SO fitting for this crazy kid of mine. I had a lot of fun decorating with this theme, since it’s obviously so different from our weddings. We couldn’t have asked for better weather the day of his party, which was such a relief since I had planned for it to be outside. Thanks to mine and Kyle’s family for all of their help day of with putting up decorations, food prep, and post party cleanup! We were thankful so many people made time in their busy summer Saturday to come celebrate our 1 year old.

Excuse the poor quality photos, they are all taken with my phone!

Here’s where the inspiration for his party came: Wild One Invitation

I made all of the decorations with my Silhouette – it is amazing!

This awesome picture was taken by a guest with her iPhone – looks like I may need to upgrade to the 7 😉
