This past week was a huge milestone in our family–Jackson turned one on Wednesday, April 18! We waited until Sunday to have his birthday party, and he really enjoyed himself. I had wanted to have it outdoors in the backyard we’ve been working so hard on, but the weather didn’t cooperate. Jackson had a great time anyway, and that’s what really mattered.
My husband loved Winnie the Pooh as a child, so we chose to do a Winnie the Pooh first birthday party. He had tons of the plush characters, so I used those for the decorations, and his gorgeous (and yummy!) cakes came from Got What it Cakes.
This little canvas is something I picked up for Jackson’s baptism, but I think I may keep it up for a lot of his parties in the future. I love what it says…all those things are so very simple, but they are things a lot of us (myself included) forget to do sometimes.
Aren’t those cakes wonderful?!
I know it’s not Winnie the Pooh themed, but I got this book to use as a message book for all of Jackson’s birthdays until he gets it as an adult–full of years and years worth of notes, advice, and well wishes from everyone important in his life.
