photos {colton's cowboy party} - part 1

of the three boys in a row on our street that were born within three weeks of each other, colton was first. last sunday marked the first "big day"...the FIRST birthday party. wow. where does time go. just as tara and i went through our pregnancies together, and through the first year of being new mommies together, we went through the party planning process together. tons of fun. i love the theme she chose! i took a ton of pictures (so she wouldn't have to worry so much about doing it) and the party details are below. you can see "people" pictures here. if you are interested in seeing all 125 photos from the party, click here. most of the handmade items featured are from a seller on etsy.

there were a few of these mini "signs" in mason jars.

planning ahead, tara purchased a pre-made scrapbook to hold party photos later.

star-shaped rice krispie treats (with "1" or "C" on each one). she used several of these bales of hay in the decor. all ballons were tied with raffia instead of ribbon - love it.

sign hanging from the light fixture. i love how she added the little "fillers" around the lights. great detail.

each guest got a bandana to wear at the party.

matching banner

plasticware wrapped in napkins with raffia

one of the favors were the rice krispie treats in these super cute boxes. the boxes and treat bags are from hobby lobby (but the "howdy" tags are from etsy).

the birthday boy's "big" gift was the horse you see here. the box of horses are more party favors.

twizzlers (a.k.a. 'rope') in mason jars

tara made the cupcake tower herself. it's super cute!
