ari’s first birthday is my fave

June 7, 2013

Beck’s best friend Ari turned one a couple weeks ago so I helped his mom put together a simple celebration in their backyard. In my book, any party that involves three cakes (and a baby) is a winner.

With budget in mind, we still tried to make it a memorable occasion for all who were involved. And I think we accomplished just that. The prints were only $2 a pop printed at Staples, the cakes and toppers were all homemade, the marquee 1 sign was recycled from Beck’s party, and we were lucky to try out products (the plates, favors, cupcake liners, candy and balloons) from the new MarthaCelebrations line at JcPenney. Guests sat out on blankets and enjoyed the warm weather and played lawn games. It was a happy  day for a happy boy. I think it shows that a cute party set-up and successful get together really only require one or two memorable elements and the rest can remain simple (I kind of mention this point a lot, but it’s true).
