Clay is ONE!

I guess it's about time to talk about Clay's birthday party. Ya know, since it was a month ago…

Remember my inspiration?

Here's what we ended up with:

I'm sad that I didn't get a better picture of the table! You can barely see the little football can holders I made for the utensils at the end! The sweet AstroTurf koozies I made were probably one of my favorite things about Clay's party and the most stressful. Maybe one day when I've forgotten the pain I'll write a tutorial…
Instead of hanging the football banner on the table I decided to make twelve of them and use them to display Clay's monthly pictures. It turned out so perfectly I'm trying to figure out if I can get away with hanging it up somewhere…

Here's a picture of Clay with Aunt Amy in front of the photo backdrop she made. Isn't it so cute??

Apparently fire is funny??

I kinda failed and didn't take a better picture of the cake…but anyway, it came from Edible Art on Selwyn for all you Charlotteans.

Clay was all smiles pretty much for the whole party!

Clay's party was so much fun and I'm so glad I was able to do all of the decorations myself. Most of them I'm going to keep for future football parties and you might even see that burlap reappear when I do my new dining room reveal! I'm not going to write tutorials on everything right now but if you have questions about how I made something, don't hesitate to ask!

I'm really happy with how everything turned out and might already be collecting ideas for next year!

    Oooo I linked my son’s first birthday party up too! ❤ I LOVE the football theme. I was actually thinking about doing that for his second birthday! His birthday is 8/27 so there's so much football stuff around! ;D

    What a cute party! I love the banners. I bought banners for my daughter’s first birthday party, but am thinking of making some for her 2nd.

    The football theme is adorable. Now that I only do girl stuff, I get really excited when I see things for boys! 🙂
