What’s red, and brown, and ivory all over?  A Sock Monkey, of course!  With the color scheme carried through in all of the details of the party and sock monkeys displayed in the cutest of ways, mom Christy throws a party FULL OF DO-IT-YOURSELF details!  This party was submitted to me by Ali Caudill who photographed the party.  Thanks, Ali!

Mom Christy made all of the cute decorations for the party- including the Birthday Boy’s party hat and the banner on the highchair that spelled “I AM ONE”!

The cake, cupcakes, macarons, and candies stayed with the party colors and tied it all together perfectly!

The Birthday Boy received this fabulous, shiny, red tricycle for his birthday!  I love how he checked it out from all angles!

And, one of my favorite details…the guests received a jar of ingredients to make homemade Oatmeal Chocolate Cookies.  Christy added red and brown M&M’s to match the party colors and made labels for each jar with baking directions…

What a perfect way to celebrate a FIRST BIRTHDAY!  Christy offers many tutorials on how to make details from this party.  Stop by her blog here and read more!

Thank you, Ali and Christy!

LITTLE HOUSE ON THE PRAIRIE PARTY

What began as a simple gesture to introduce my daughter to a wonderful book series has become a special evening ritual for us- reading Laura Ingalls Wilder’s Little House books!  I must admit, I didn’t realize quite how interesting these books would be to her, but she cannot wait to read all nine in the series.  It was only fitting that her birthday party focus around Little House on the Prairie!  Together, we had a ball planning all of the details of her party that related to the books in some way.  At Camille’s request, we focused on some of her favorite parts of the stories… prairie flowers, covered wagons, tee pees, the colors in the drawings of the books,  and “pretty”…because “Ma” liked things to be pretty!
