Our Monster is One!

I can not believe it, our "baby" is actually 1!

Last week I shared out invite here.
We decided to go with a Monster theme, because it fits Wyatt's personality to a T! 
He is into everything! The cabinets, the toilet  you name it. But when you try to get a smile out of him, good luck. He can be super serious.

Once I made the invites, I was stumped as to what to make to go along with the Monster theme. 
I pulled out my cricut (ha! I bet you didn't know I had one! I never use it!) and tried to work out a banner. But then noticed if you cut the silhouette of a cupcake they look like goofy monster shapes. Perfect!

So I cut a bunch of fun paper into the cupcake/monster shape added some googly eyes and a marker smile and had monsters for our goodie bags and made little puppets too!

I stuck the puppets on the tables and the kids played with them ( and took them home) throughout the day.

The morning of the party, I felt awful! I forgot to pick up a Birthday boy Tshirt. But as usual my sister pulled through for me and whipped up a Monster shirt! 

Not only did my sister make the shirt for Wyatt but his awesome cake! 
Did you know if your grocery store makes cakes you can buy the accessories and not the cake?
We do! We picked up the tray that the cupcakes and cake sit on ( purple tentacles to hold the cupcakes) 
the eyeball on the big cake, and all the rings (eyeballs) on the cupcakes!

The rest of the party was full of primary colored balloons, table clothes, plates, cups etc. I even hot glued eyeballs on toothpicks and stuck them into the food!

Overall we have a great day! 
And our little Monster was pooped and couldn't wait for bed!

What's your favorite first birthday theme?
