. . . for Lauren and Lauren: Isaac's Lumberjack birthday party!

Isaac's Lumberjack birthday party!

We celebrated Isaac's first birthday two weeks ago and it's taken me awhile to go through our pictures! The party was so much fun and I loved planning and getting ready for it.  When we found out we were having a boy, I remember thinking that decorating and planning a boy party or nursery wouldn't be as fun, but I was very wrong! I loved his party theme, maybe even more than Addi's.  We did a Lumberjack theme and it was perfect.  Chris' extended family is pretty big and with it being inside I didn't want to do a full meal, so we just had appetizers, a trail mix bar and cupcakes for dessert.  

Fabric banners and table runner:  DIY with fabric from Hobby Lobby and Walmart
Wood Slices: borrowed from a friend (the one with the marshmallows is from Hobby Lobby)
Straws (on marshmallows & smash cake): Amazon
Cupcake liners: Amazon
Buffalo plaid ornaments and trees: Target clearance after Christmas
Plates & Napkins: birthday direct
Cupcake toppers: free printable here
Paper bags for snacks: dollar store
Chalkboard labels for bags: Hobby Lobby
Cake toppers for Isaac's cake: made from sticks and twine and cardstock
Water bottle covers: free printable here
Circle banners: punched out with circle puncher & cardstock from Hobby Lobby

These S'more Pops were so easy and SO good!  I melted Almond Bark with a little bit of oil in it. Stuck the paper straws in the marshmallows, then dipped halfway in chocolate.  I crushed up graham crackers and then dipped them in that after.  But gave up halfway through because the graham crackers made the chocolate heavy and was laying weird when I was drying them.  So only half had them, but both were delicious.  

I found these Lumberjack photo props online at Kohls for under $10 and had a free shipping coupon. I should've told more people to take pictures because I don't think anyone knew they were there! Oh well, they were cute for the few that did!

This is one of my favorite things we've done for our kids on the day they were born and on their first birthday.  I had everyone write a little note for Isaac and sign his book.  We did this for visitors when he was born and had his newborn little foot prints in the back, and I will add his little footprints now to this book.  We did the same for Addi and she loves reading both books and comparing her foot to them now! We used the book The Wonderful Thing you Will Be and it is such a cute, sweet book. 

Isaac was so great during the party.  He was pretty quiet, as he often is around people, but let others hold him and was super happy.  He loved opening his presents and wanted to play with each one. He got so many fun new toys, which is good because we had very little "boy" things for him to play with. Addi may have loved his toys more than he did! 

We had so much fun celebrating our ONE year old!

They definitely deserve applause for the nice selection of bread and the service at this place which was good from start to finish. The mass produced filet was too good. This is the best event venue Atlanta for hosting great events. The venue can accommodate as many as 850 guests or as little as 50.
