First Birthday Party | Teddy Bear Picnic

As my little guy’s first birthday approached and my maternity leave wound to a close, I found myself busier than ever. And since I’m not really the type to go out and buy a party in a bag (although I’m sure it’s awfully convenient), I picked a theme that would let me decorate with things I already had around the house, and then get crafty with a few key items to help set the scene.

Cupcake Toppers & Gift Tags | Pumpkin Birthday Party

Robin’s birthday is in October, so when we celebrated her first birthday (2 years ago!) I loved the idea of a pumpkin-themed party. Once I got going, it ended up being SO easy to make decorations inspired by autumn and pumpkins and to tie everything together using various shades of orange, brown, yellow and green. Although I had to spend a little money for some essential items (colourful paper, pumpkin press, etc.), I’ve been able to re-use these supplies each year.
