A First Birthday Party – Bird Theme

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.

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.

    What a great day it was. The birthday girl seemed to love it all and of course was as cute as she could be. The bird houses were so smartly done as to make the colors pop and everything all work together. The idea to use some items from there own home was a great one. The handmade banners, along with the cute chalkboard that was done all added to a great look along with the pictures of the birthday girl and her crown.
