First birthday party

It was a little over a month ago but I think I'll lose some mom cred if I don't share at least a couple photos from his first birthday party. It was just a simple shindig with friends, snacks, animals in party hats and of course, his first taste of cake.

It was kinda hard for me to keep it simple because there are just so many cute kid parties out there (entire blogs dedicated to it!) but I couldn't let myself spend that kind of money on a first birthday, so we ended up just using decor we had (or borrowed) and the only thing we bought was food. Now, if I had an extra $1000 to use on a party you better believe I would've done it up but he'll never know the difference right?! :)

It was fun and straight-forward and us! And he had a blast!

Also, happy new year! Ironically, it was on January 2nd last year that I first introduced Beck on the blog. So I guess fashionably late is my thing ;)

    love the zebra cake, too cute!
    and pressure to spend money and to have a pinterest perfect party is common (especially in the blogging world). but i agree! i wouldn't want to spend loads of money on my sons first. ;)

  5. You did tremendously good: I think a birthday party is about how you make the birthday boy feel and he sure looks very happy! I really love what you did for the cake and decoration, simple and beautiful! The zebra with the matching hat is so adorable!

    Happy 2nd year on Earth to your little Beck!
