Ok, here's my disclaimer...this post has nothing to do with school. My little man turned the big O-N-E over the weekend and we celebrated with a very hungry caterpillar themed cook-out. I found the cutest ideas online and 'recreated' them for our party. Here are a few pics of the decor and my handsome little man. The past year has flown by and I can't believe I'm a mommy to a one year old! It is by far the b-e-s-t job in the world. Going back to school is going to be harder for me than him when I have to leave him!!
Carter in his b-day shirt I ordered from Etsy.
One of the food tables with the sweets and fruits...all caterpillar inspired.:-)
A view of the gift table (minus the trash can in the back) with the banner I made.
My wonderful sister and brother-in-law hung this up. Made out of scrapbook paper and cut-out letters.
Carter's official birthday chair...I used left over scrapbook paper from the banner, hot glued them to a piece of green ribbon and added a few caterpillar decals.
There was an awful storm that whipped through while we were setting up...hence, this picture came out a little dark. Cupcakes were topped with caterpillar stickers I put on scrapbook paper punch-outs.
Yummy caterpillars on a stick...grapes and a strawberry and viola!
My cute little guy in his birthday hat...bought plain old hats and added the number one to his. All others had a pom-pom added to the top with a picture of a caterpillar glued on.
These turned out so cute & yummy (and super easy to make). Marshmallows, candy melts, sprinkles, and a lollipop stick and a few minutes to put them together. I just love that they're so colorful!
Now that birthday planning is over, back to reality AND my classroom this week for some serious cleaning, organizing, and decorating. My little caterpillar will be joining me, helping to make more messes for me to clean up!!!
