Party Planning HDawg's First Birthday Party!

Hey friends! Words cannot express how excited I am to celebrate my little man and his first birthday this weekend! The past year has flown by in blur of amazing, priceless, love-filled moments. But I'll save the sappy stuff for tomorrow's post : ) Today is all about the party prepping!

David and I decided to theme the birthday party around one of H's favorite books- Chicka Chicka Boom Boom. The kid cracks up every time we read it to him, so we thought it was only appropriate to surround him with something he loves. Plus he loves bright colors, so this theme is perfect!

I picked out the invitation on Etsy from this shop. She also created some other custom printables that I'll share with you after the party! She was great to work with and I love the product. How cute, right?!

Clearly, I took out all of the good stuff and added my lame black font to her pretty design, but you get the picture.

We're doing all kinds of fun alphabet-themed things for the kiddos but plan to keep the entire event light and fun for our family and close friends that we invited. I didn't want to put too much pressure on myself to DIY everything (ie. I cannot look up anything on Pinterest) but I do have a few small projects up my sleeve. I think it's a good balance and has left me stress-free and excited for the event.

Here are some sneak peeks at some of the party details!

I can't wait to share all of the details with y'all next week!

Have you planned any little kiddo birthday parties lately? What kind of themes did you use?!


  1. super cute! cant believe its been an year!

  2. So cute! My little guy loves Chicka Chicka Boom Boom too and we did his first birthday in that theme as well! I can't wait to see what you come up with! I'm sure it'll be awesome! :-)

  3. Love it! My girls loved that book when they were little. It is one of our favorites to give as a gift to new parents.

  4. My son LOOOVES Chicka Chicka Boom Boom! We even have it on a CD that I play in the car and it makes him laugh all the time. His first birthday isn't until December, but I'm already planning his party in my head. I think we're going with Mickey Mouse Clubhouse though. This is such a great idea! I especially love the invitation!

  5. I can't wait to see! We did a "Little Man" theme for Cayden's birthday last month. I tried to focus on the neckties instead of the mustaches just because that's my preference and Cayden's monthly growth stickers were in the shape of neckties. It turned out so cute and we had a great time. So many emotions surrounding 1st birthdays. It's as much a party for you as it is for him since you remember those birth details like they were yesterday! Enjoy your day!!

  6. Looks like it's going to be a blast! I'll have to check out that book for Jack!

  7. Happy Birthday to your little one...and congrats to Mommy and Daddy for surviving the first year :) Enjoy the party! BTW- we did a First BEE-day for my son: ...and I am already scheming up my (4 month old) daughter's first birthday- so much fun!

  8. So cute! I can't wait to see the party details! And happy 1st bday to little H! :)
