Yeehaw! Santi’s first birthday party was inspired by a cute little cowboy I found on Birthday Express. Sometimes it just takes one little thing to get you into the party mode and just like that you have a party theme.
I got to work right away and as always, Oriental Trading came through with the cowboy hats, bandanas, and small favor bags. I knew I would be able to get a cowboy themed piñata with Party City and found the right horse!
The small favor bags were made for our tiniest guests. I purchased the little chunky book, Open the Barn Door by Christopher Santoro. The older kids received a Melissa and Doug Decorate Your Own Horse Figurine. I put those in a brown gift bag and tied a bandana on the handles. I love when the kids go home with a dress up costume from parties. A simple hat and bandana will get their imaginations going long after the party is over!
Santi’s godparents picked up this adorable and delicious cake from Sweet Sugar Sunshine located in the Lower East Side in Manhattan. All chocolate of course!! We all thought the little guy looked like Santi!
The food: Mac and Cheese, a variety of sandwiches and wraps, salsa and guacamole, potato salad and always a fruit salad. Everything was picked up by our local deli and Whole Foods. Note to self: uncover all your food before taking the picture!!! ha! I’m learning…!
I found this cute bib while shopping at Target! Perfect for the birthday boy!
We brought out the rocking horse from Santi’s bedroom and it was quite a hit with the little babies!
Birthday Express also carried these tees to go along with all the party favors. I love to dress the boys in matching outfits for their birthday celebrations.
What are you celebrating next? Thinking of having a big party? Would love to hear all about it!
