Geometric Party Reveal

So, my baby turned one. And it's hitting me hard this time around. While I'm happy to be done with the stress, late nights and never ending feeding that comes with a newborn, watching this boy grow up has been so bittersweet. I'm not sure what it is, but I've been squeezing him extra tight this week (and I'm not sure he appreciates that much).



Maybe it was this sad little feeling that led me to literally spoil the poor boy by buying him more gifts than normal. I've been collecting little things here and there for some time now. I picked up an elephant toy last minute and loved it so much that it became a little bit of a theme.




The star of the party decor was definitely washi masking tape. I used it to make a geometric shape on our chalkboard. I also decorated plain muslin bags with a few different designs. Every pint-sized guest got a party blower, an elephant, and a huge super-bounce ball.



For cupcake toppers, I pushed a small wooden dowel through some faceted wooden beads that had been painted. In addition to cupcakes, we also served ice cream in these adorable geometric bowls from Target ($0.50 each-score!).



We covered the table with butcher paper and laid out some jewel shaped crayons so tiny guests could color. I made some simple triangle bunting out of construction paper and tied a few huge balloons to the birthday boy's seat. I also filled the floor with a ton of non-floating balloons because Jack goes crazy over them! Even though we were tripping over them and listening to them pop all night, they were a huge hit with the kiddos.

I'm falling more and more in love with simple party themes these days and I'm happy about how Jack's party turned out-it felt just right. Happy Birthday sweet boy-you are so very loved!
