Rifle Paper Co.1st Birthday Inspiration

Sometimes I feel nuts for already thinking up a theme for P's first birthday. However considering how crazy summers get with vacations, baby showers, bridal showers and such I totally am justifying my thoughts. I have already started crafting (I know crazy!) and ordering a couple of things. Just so come August I am not so overwhelmed with the planning aspect!

So if you can't tell, I am going for a Rifle Paper Co. flower theme. Seeing that her first birthday falls at the end of August my biggest worry is the heat! We will most likely be hosting it at a local park, since we just don't have a yard large enough to accommodate everyone. In a perfect world it would be at my home (less to carry/transport/worry about!) but I am trying not to bum out about it too hard. In reality - she won't remember a thing!

I have started an incredibly cute Happy Birthday banner that I can't wait to see how it turns out. I already had to make some tweaks to it. But pretty sure it will be even better in the end.

So some questions for you mama's who have hosted a one years old party. How many people were on your guest list? Where did you host it? Did you BBQ? Have it catered?

I am trying to think of the smartest way to go about this without making it a huge ordeal cost wise. So any ideas or input would be super helpful! The less I have to think about by the time it rolls around the better!

  4. Oh the birthday party stress! The first one is all about the parents, so I say invite all the friends & family you like! After that, it will be more about Presley. We threw Liam's at my parents lake house and BBQ'd. It was perfect!

  6. I am in the midst of planning my daughter's first birthday too (hers is early May) and our guest list right now is around 70 people! I had to rent a small hall to hold everyone - less work and cleanup for me!! I love this theme and can't wait to see how your banner turns out!

  8. I have an August and a January baby and live in New England so we have two spectrums of birthday parties! Her first birthday (Aug) we had about 25 people and semi catered it. We did a great deli tray and my father in law is a great cook so he did meatballs and sausage and peppers. We had a few side salads. Set up tables on the deck and inside and that was that! Parties that have over 50 people for a 1 year old is overboard in my opinion. However my entire family lives in California so it could have been different haha! Your theme is precious.

  12. I just attended a wedding here and despite my absolutely strict taste, I had an amazing experience here and I thought to myself that this vow renewal location is perfect! Their food is delicious and the ambiance is elegant.
