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!


Bennett’s grandparents made this ADORABLE teepee!


Michael’s sells this box full of hanging items you just assemble – huge time saver and it adds so much to the decor!

The calm before the party


My sister-in-law made Bennett’s smash cake!


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



We mainly wanted the little kids invited to have a lot of fun and get some energy out!


Thanks to all who came & celebrated! We love you!

Welcome to the World Nursery

Remember Erin’s travel themed baby shower? Well this theme didn’t stop there! Erin decoded the perfect travel baby nursery.

The large wall map took 4 people to hang! 


Kyle and Erin love to travel and want Bennett to be prepared when they start filling up his first passport.

These cute plane string art came from Target

This large map was bought off Amazon – it gets hung like wallpaper!

This was a neat find by Ally

TJ Maxx for the win!

Target – are we surprised?

Changing table complete with Emily Ley’s sweet baby book.

Some fun facts about B’s nursery:

•The dresser was Erin’s mom’s growing up.

•The crib was used with all of Jeri’s girls and is now living a new life in the Warner family.

•The map of OH is a tribute to Erin’s home state.

The Warners are adjusting well as a new family of 3! Below is a current picture of Bennett who is 2 months old now.

Travel Theme Baby Shower

We started our summer celebrating with one of our own {Erin & Kyle Warner} on their new little one. 

Ally and Jeri (with the help of Terri the soon-to-be grandma and mother-in-law of Erin) planned a travel themed shower to celebrate the littlest Warner arriving into the world. 

It was just a fun day helping Erin prepare for her little one. 

We’re happy to report Bennet Lincoln Warner made his arrival on
