As I peruse the internet for birthday party ideas for my little loves and showers for my fantabulous friends, I am simply amazed at the amount of talent that is "out there" in the world! I noticed that most of the blogs were from large cities here and there. I sort of felt like I needed to represent the small{ish} towns out there, like mine. Mostly because I am surrounded by a mega-talented group of friends! This blog is dedicated to all of them and to all of you. For the love of a sweet soiree!

Two AMAZING First Birthdays!

I have two friends who threw such cute parties for their little ONE year olds! I love the details on both and wanted to show them off because one is for a girl and the other a boy. Each party "theme" incorporated cute and fun little elements that made them both adorable!

Party #1: Lila's Cupcake Party!
Ok, first off, aren't BOTH of these ladies just beautiful??? I LOVED her welcome table! And right now, I am a huge fan of all things books, so gotta love the "If You Give a Cat a Cupcake" book to sign! Also, check out the whisks tied with ribbon! Ahh! Too cute!

Birthday banner and look at the mantle. It has an antique looking whisk and a muffin baking tin. How chic??????

This is my favorite! Muffin tin lunch for the kiddos! How precious!
And one happy little Lila! She will love looking back at what a great party her mama gave her!

Party #2: Sawyer's Bug Birthday!
This is my friend, Jennifer, who is a former school teacher. Her son's party was so cute! She decorated it around "bug" books and it turned out precious. She found the cutest bug recipes at and made labels for all of the food!

The labels are the little touches I am always talking about! So much more fun to think you are eating a "bug bagel"!

And the pictures of Sawyer hung over the food!
She also had a craft for the older kids {the white haired kiddo is mine!} They decorated little insect houses with rubber insects! My son thought it was a super fun little goody! Such a great job! Hope you enjoyed these as much as I did!
