Reid's First Down!

Wednesday, November 25, 2015

On Saturday we celebrated Reid's 1st birthday!

We always keep our birthday parties pretty small, with just family and friends who are like family.
I found the invite here.

And I found free printables on Pinterest for some of the other decorations.  I stenciled the banner and made the felt football field.  I had the ONE letters from Carter's party and just repainted them!
 Christian made the field goal post that started as decor and also became a ring toss and a backyard game!

I painted the NFL "one" logo for the front door.  Christian jokes that everything I make looks awesome from 3 feet away.  I admit that I am no perfectionist and I get things done pretty quick, when it comes to party decorations.

I never really work this way, procrastinator I am not, but having 2 children makes everything harder so I was crafting for 2 days during naptime and during The Voice leading up to the party.

By far the coolest part of the party was the cake.  She made it exactly how I hoped and even better!

Reid demolished the smash cake and both of us had to change after that.  But he only had 2 little licks of cake from my fingers.

The kids played pin the football on the field goal, bean bag toss, and Christian made a field goal for kicking inflatable footballs through it and a ring toss.

After lunch the kids headed outside for a game of football in the backyard.

Then we opened presents. And the kids took home their goodie bag of "super bowl rings"  (ring pops), Reese's peanut butter footballs, and an inflatable football.

I think everyone had a fun day and I'm happy to have these memories and pictures for Reid one day!

  2. I love all the little details! What a perfect party!

  3. How would you recommend doing the door sign? traced or free hand?

    1. I just did it free hand. If you could find a way to trace it that would probably be easier!


I love to read your thoughts! Thanks for your comment!
