Ollie’s first birthday party! Love how the teddy theme turned out!
How perfect is this cake by my friend Megan!? She does alllll our cakes. Not only are they always the cutest, they are also so yummy!
Missing Mara and Wes 🙁 We didn’t get them until later that night from there Moms so I didn’t get as many pics with them other than when we did cake 🙂 but so happy they were here to celebrate with us during the party!
I am so obsessed with how the whole balloon/teddy bear installation came together! Pop Park City does such an amaaaaazing job with the colors and balloon arch. They have such an eye for detail! We got the marquee letters from AlphaLit – another one of our go-tos for any big events or parties we have.
OUR BABY BOY TURNED 1!! I seriously can’t even believe it. How is he ONE! It was birthday marathon at our house last week. Wes birthday was the 26th, Ollies was the 30th, and Cody and my moms birthday was on the 4th. So it was party after party 🙂 The day before Ollie’s birthday I cried my eyes out haha. Cody and I went on a date night and in the middle of dinner I just started crying. Knowing this is most likely our last baby, all these emotions just hit thinking about how much he’s grown, our time at the NICU when he was born, it was just a flood of emotions. But then on his actual birthday it was just PURE JOY. When I was little I got a teddy bear I carried everywhere named Oso (spanish for bear – I was fluent in Spanish as a little girl 🥰). So I was up super late one night (my creativity always hits super late at night) and it hit me how cute would a teddy bear theme be for his first birthday! I found this ADORABLE bear that’s actually the same brand as the one I had growing up. 🙂 So I ended up using that teddy bear as inspo for the theme and love how it turned out, especially with all the fall tones.
We used Pop Park City for the balloons and Alphalit SLC for the letters. I have used them for other events and they are seriously SO TALENTED. They made custom ballon colors to match my vision, and the balloon tassels, and confetti balloon are all hand made so they match the balloons perfectly. It was seriously even prettier in person if you can believe it! The darkest balloons are a gorgeous dark brown (hard to see it in pictures they read a little more black here but soooo gorgeous in real life). They put so much detail into it and come to your house and set it up – such an amazing service! (They also have no-contact delivery if you prefer.)
I am so in love with all these pics, I can’t wait to make a little book out of them for memories.
