Hello my loves!
My son Connor just turned ONE! Incredible how fast time flies, next I thing know he’ll start school, be a teenager, start dating (oh boy), Hahaha, and so on! Since it was such a haute-affair, I wanted to share with you some photos from his special day. The theme was simple, Red, White and Blue. I always like to keep things clean and chic, a lot of times kiddie party decor looks like a christmas tree exploded on them. I didn’t hire a decorator because I decided on what I wanted, on such short notice. Besides, I really do enjoy doing creative things on my own. Quite a few of you asked where I bought certain things I used to display and decorate. You might’ve seen some of the photo’s on my instagram account on how we celebrated, here’s a post on how I party planned the whole party in just 4 days.
Connor’s Invites and Thank you cards were made by PAPER TREATS.
It’s an edible centerpiece. I filled these wooden boxes which I had custom made from HANDICRAFTS ATBP. with these really cute printed baking paper cups from PAPER CHIC STUDIO which I used to fill with all sorts of sweets like polvoron, gummy bears, chocolate kisses, caramel kettle corn and oreo’s. I also used little red pales and filled it with marshmallows and stick-o’s, so guests could munch on them while waiting for their food.
HANDICRAFTS ATBP. were so sweet to sponsor Connor’s giant name.
His cake was a gift from his ninang Rocio, which was designed and made my MARTA’S CAKES (They also created our wedding cake) The cake also came with customised cookie lollies which the guests took home as a sweet treat.
The cupcakes, I added! They are from CUPCAKES BY SONJA, soooooo yummy! They got wiped out!
These kiddie stools were also customised by HANDICRAFTS ATBP. they served a double purpose. For the kids to sit on as well as a great giveaway. They can make them in any print, even put on any cartoon character.
These were the baking cups I used to put in all the sweets for the centrepiece. All from PAPER CHIC STUDIO.
The swirly straws and paper cups were perfect for the little theme I had going on, also from PAPER CHIC STUDIO.
Ahhh, the super cute giveaway baskets, made by HANDICRAFTS ATBP. I filled it Goodies from BENCH, a face towel, baby cologne, and hand sanitizer. If I had it my way, everything I’d put would be practical, hehe, but my mom was quick to remind me that the goodies bags were for the kids and not the moms so I also threw in a pencil set with rulers, toy cars for the boys, bubbles, hair clips for the girls and some gummy bears, kit-kats and maltesers. I used twine from PAPER CHIC STUDIO to tie on the “Thank you” cards made by PAPER TREATS.
