Yesterday we had a blast celebrating our little man's 1st birthday!
Here is the invite that was sent to our closest friends and family. Thank you, Kristine Schroeder, for your amazing talent...she is AH-MAZING...seriously! Let me know if you want her info...she can do anything!
The "lootin'" table...cowboy cookie mix for the adults, cowboy hats and stick ponies for the kids...thank you, Natasha!
Cowboy cookie mix with the rubberband guns that were in the "L.T. Lofgren Shootin; Range"...unfortunately I didn't get a picture of the shooting range I set up. :o(
The centerpieces...thank you Trader Joe's for all of the FREE sunflowers...yes, there is a story behind that!
Good ol' drinking water...I made the labels myself, using Microsoft Word...so easy!
Around our patio I hung photos of Landry's first year, using twine from the Dollar Tree, clothespins I already had, and scrapbook paper I had as well.
Landry's birthday banner...with the help of my wonderful Silhouette machine, I was able to transform paper lunch sacks and old scrapbook paper into this...
The grub...we had "Tumbleweed tri-tip," "chuckwagon chili," "stampedin' strawberries," "buckaroo broccoli slaw," and "rawhide rolls."
The "sweet stuff"...Landry's cake is on top, then cupcakes from Vons...thank you Vons for rescuing me from my cupcake crisis..."Landry's Lassos" - a.k.a. red ropes, and "brandin' irons" - a.k.a. chocolate covered pretzels. All of the food labels and cupcake toppers I also made using Microsoft word and my stash of scrapbook paper!
The birthday boy's cake...cowboy hat cake topper I ordered off of Etsy!
The "wanted" gallery! I created a wanted poster for every guest at the party. For example, "WANTED: Dale "Nawnie" Kruser...crime: spoiling the birthday boy!" It was a huge hit. Everyone loved reading what their "crime" was...so much that most of them took their poster with them! :o)
The sign on our front door...
and the sign on the door as our guests were on their way out...again, both were created using Microsoft Word and my scrapbook stash!
Our sweet, little family!
Sheriff Daddy...I made our shirts with iron on transfers...mine said Sheriff Mommy...duh!
It was a great day filled with lots of love and fun as we celebrated our little one turning one!
