I can't believe my baby is one! This last year has been a whirlwind and I wish I could slow time down. Nevertheless, if time were at a halt then we would have no birthdays to celebrate so I guess I'm okay with it. :) For Graham's first birthday I chose to use the theme of "bugs and insects." I made all of the printables myself and had them printed at my local print shop-- I think they turned out darling. I will be uploading them to Etsy soon for those interested in purchasing.

The invite-- I used a scallop punch to make the bug bites.
I had party goers fill out notes for Graham to open/read on his 18th birthday. I plan to put them into his time capsule/chest with other significant things from his first year of life.

bugs were everywhere!
Party goers got to take home bug glasses, insect nets and ladybug or bee masks.
Delicious food bought at Costco. LOVE that place.

The bug glasses were a huge hit. Maybe not with my little bug, but all the other little bugs loved them.

Happy Birthday Graham! Just LOVE you!
*party side note: I had intentions to make the food more "bug and insect" related, but ran out of time. It would have been cute to have chocolate pudding cups with crushed oreos and gummy bugs sticking out of the top or to make beetle bite cookies. The possibilities are endless with a bug themed party. So fun!
