Wynn’s 1st Birthday Party {The Animal Parade}

We had a birthday open house for Wynn’s 1st birthday on Saturday.   Here is our handsome party animal.

We ended up with more of a traditional party than an open house because most of our friends came at the very start and stayed the whole time-we took that as a such a great compliment and we all had a *wonderful* time. Thank you so much to everyone who came out to celebrate with us!

To all of my blog friends, welcome to the animal parade!  I stumbled on these party decorations a few months back while shopping with a friend in Williams Somoma.  Who knew Williams Sonoma did kids’ birthday parties!?  I found everything on major clearance too-I couldn’t pass it up!

I made the paper chain out of colored paper from Kinkos (58 cents).  Matching blue, white and yellow balloons from a local party shop.

I kept the food super simple-we had cupcakes, coffee and old fashioned lemonade-complete with paper soda fountain straws from Bake it Pretty (thanks to Emily at Jones Design Company for the recommendation!)  Also wagon wheels for the babies 😉
Cupcake toppers from Tomkatstudio on Etsy. 
They say “Wynn”, “1”, and “Happy First Birthday”
Simple but fun table flags made from scrapbook paper remnants.  I made Wynn’s birthday hat out of the same green herringbone paper and added a pom to the top.  He kept his hat on the whole time, which was so cute.
Party bags.  My amazing friend tracey made each of the babies a canvas carry bag with their individual names hand stamped on them.  Everyone also got a traditional box of animal crackers to go with the animal parade theme.

Happy Birthday baby boy, we will love you forever.


  1. What a fun party! Loved the bunting! Huge bunting fan here! Great Job, Erin! You’re so creative. Did you cry? I always cry at the first birday for some reason 🙂

    Happy 1st Mr. Wynn ~ God Bless you.

  2. Wow, 1 already?! Erin, you party decor turned out so beautiful. What a perfect theme for a little boy and such a great compliment that everyone stayed for the whole party. 🙂
