We recently celebrated my niece’s first birthday with a backyard bird-themed party! When my sister and her husband were trying to come up with a fun theme they decided on birds, because Addison just loves them! When you say “Addie do you see the birdy?” she will look around curiously to find the pretty winged creatures, and then excitedly point and squeal when they fly. It is pretty adorable, just like she is.
Once the theme was set Holly and Craig (my sister and brother in-law) picked out their invitations, and the color scheme and decor started rolling from there.
I made a chalkboard sign to welcome guests to the party, as well as a banner for first birthday pictures and decor, and used the invitations as inspiration for both.
We also went to Michaels Craft Store and picked up a bunch of wooden birdhouses that I painted in various colors, we hung these from the trees in their backyard and placed around the party.
And for the tables my sister and I luckily already owned a few birdhouses, and bird decor that we combined with some ribbons and placed around as well.
My sister picked up even more birdhouses to be used as party favors for the children. She secured a few markers and an adorable printable bird tag on each.
Holly and Craig ordered the perfect cake and smash cake for the party from a local baker.
Happy Birthday Addie! xoxo
