Cowboys & Indians 1st Birthday

I like throwing parties. I get a lot of flack for the over-the-top birthday parties I throw for my kids. Yes, it’s mostly for me, but isn’t that ok? I mean, I like to have fun decorations, I want a theme, I want people dressing up to match the theme, and dammit, I want a little pomp & circumstance over my kids’ birthdays.

I digress.

The boys turning 1 was no different. The first birthday has to be awesome. Well, at my house it does.

I wanted to do something fun for these two. Cowboys and Indians. I spent countless hours discussing options for clothing, decorations, and cake flavors with a handful of GRACIOUS vendors, and below you will see my vision come to life.

Special thanks to Babette’s Feast & Catering, Sweet N Swag, Little Mr. Ties, The Wild Purple, The Printed Palette, & A Little Hipster for all of the amazing gifts you donated to make this party happen. It was everything I had envisioned!

A special thanks to my main girl, Maren freaking Miller, for snapping pictures while I rangled children, ate cake, carried babies, and shielded my offspring from the monsoon that decided to blow in the second this party started.

Happy Monday! Mama Swag Monday is back with darling teething/nursing necklaces by Little Lemon Treasures.

We love our nursing necklaces over here! These boys are in the grabbing, pulling, teething stage, so having something for them to grab & pull that is NOT my hair is so nice. We love love love our necklaces because they are made from 100% non-toxic food grade chew safe silicone beads. They are great for helping baby focus while nursing or drinking a bottle, improving hand-eye coordination, and again, no hair pulling!
