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?


  1. Sounds like a great birthday party! Love the cake and cupcakes. Super cute!

  2. Looks great!!! What is it with these monstrous second children? I call mine "the imp" because he's a devilish little guy. He does smile a lot but he also gets into everything he can reach and does it with a twinkle in his eye like he knows it isn't right.

    Anyway, the party looks great and I love that you figured out a cupcake looks like a monster! I never would have thought of that. Great job!!!

  3. What an adorable birthday theme! And that is such a great tip to be able to go to the bakery to pick up the supplies :) My little girl is turning one this month...I can't even believe it! This momma is not ready!
