My son, Finn, turned one year old earlier this month. To celebrate, we threw a small birthday party with the theme, Our Little Prince.
The image above with the baby carriage was the inspiration for the whole party. I used that graphic, with some modifications, on the invites, and then pulled the red and baby blue into a few simple decorations around our living room/dining room.
We decided to have the event be open house style, so people could come and go between a set time. I liked the informal feel that gave to the event. It was nice to not have to keep track of responses. It also allowed for very low key food options. Since I am not a great baker, I didn’t want to make a cake. I decided to make cookies—Chocolate Chip and Sugar Cookies—instead. They were a great option for guests to munch on, and who doesn’t like cookies?

My only regrets are that I would have made Finn this felt crown, and that I would have taken pictures. I totally forgot to take a single picture from the gathering.
I was pretty happy with how the theme came together. It was a fairly simple get-together, but it was the perfect way to celebrate our little man.
