Lincoln's Wild One First Birthday

This past weekend, we had so much fun celebrating Lincoln's first birthday party with a small party with family. He is a crazy little one who is pretty much unstoppable, so a 'Where The Wild Things Are' theme was absolutely fitting. I had so much fun pulling together everything for this party. One of my favorite themes so far!
I put together this balloon wall using some aluminum wire, and LOTS of scotch and painters tape. The ONE balloon was purchased on Etsy

The wood chalkboard and birthday crown were both DIY projects. I love how they turned out!

For the cupcakes, I went all out with box mix ;-) The gold wraps are from Hobby Lobby, and the toppers were another DIY make from thick gold felt paper!
I am kind of obsessed with how these 'teepee dirt cups' turned out. They were easy to put together and so cute!
We also had smores on a stick. There we no shortage of sugar at this party!
For the actual meal (because there were things besides sugar, I swear!) we had three different kinds of friend chicken wings, French fries, seven layer salad, and mac and cheese. My husband and brother in law deep fried a LOT of wings, and between that and the homemade sauces it was a constantly moving process so therefore, no food pictures. But trust me when I say, it was all SO good!
The banner for the high chair and the mantle are..wait for it..another DIY! I was so proud of all of the things I was able to make for this party. All of the ribbon is from hobby lobby, and the letter tags were spray painted and then hand drawn with paints we had on hand!

The cake topper was made with gold glitter felt, too!

How cute is this picture of Lincoln and my brother!? So sweet.

This is about the full extent to Lincoln's cake 'mess'. He wanted nothing to do with it! we tried to put his hand in it a few times and he was NOT having it! For being a wild one, he sure isn't wild about being messy ;-)

Just chomping away on his new water bottle.

 All of my in-laws went in and got Lincoln (and let's be real, Jackson too) this Radio Flyer wagon! We immediately took them for a swing around the yard!
We are so grateful for our family that came out to help us celebrate our little man. Now, onto all of the adventures that year ONE will bring!
