Beck-A-Palooza: Beckam’s 1st Birthday

& FIVE of THE BEST kid party themes right now

It’s crazy to think that this sweet little boy was hanging out in my belly just a year ago. Having a baby is the biggest blessing, it shifts your life, your perspective and your heart in ways that no one can prepare you for. Joshua and I always joke, as far as time goes there is BB (before Beckam) and BA (after Beckam). Getting to celebrate this sweets babes birthday was such a joy for me. I wanted his party to be joyful and fun to represent his personality but I didn’t want to go too crazy, after all he is just ONE.

THEMES YOU’LL LOVE

  1. SPACE: I love the space theme that is so popular right now. You can take it in so many directions, astronauts, space, aliens, loud colors with gold/silver. I think there is a lot of potential to get really creative
  2. LITTLE EXPLORER: I can just see it now. You can have natural tables with greenery, wood elements and cute little bear plates!
  3. CIRCUS: This one I think could be one of those parties that could get away from me but in a good way. A circus theme is classic and fun. Think face painting, outdoor games with prizes, cotton candy machine and maybe even a food truck!
  4. CARS & TRUCKS: This could be really cute if done right. I can see this being great for when B gets a little bit older.
  5. UNDER THE SEA: Especially with B’s birthday being near the summer, this could be a fun party to have a slip in slide, bouncy water slide and sprinklers going!

The Winner: BIRTHDAY PALOOZA!

all the ingredients for a perfect party

This is the invitation we used for Beckam’s Party. We had them custom made from THIS Etsy shop. She was fast and professional! Once the order was complete she sends the image via email. From there you can have them printed off. I recommend your local FedEx Kinkos or VistaPrint. However we just sent them electronically to cut costs.

HOW TO: Make a Balloon Arch

The key to a really great balloon arch is coordinating colors and varying sizes. We started with the solid balloons first and blew them up to the fullest size. From there we worked in the clear balloons with dots in smaller varying sizes. I used the clear double hole balloon arch template and put the large balloons on first skipping every other hole. Then we filled in the holes with the smaller balloons, rotating through the colors. The supplies we used are linked below!
