Mr. One-derful Birthday

Is anyone else feeling a bit of a 3-day weekend hangover?
I am feeling a little sluggish getting back to regular everyday life.
But summer is here, my friends!!
(Knock on wood, right??)
We had a lovely weekend with family in town--all celebrating my sweet nephew's first birthday.  My sister threw him a sweet birthday party, and the theme was
Mr. One-derful

Super cute, right??
I made some of these little party hats as centerpieces. We guessed (and we were oh-so-right!) that this sweet little guy wouldn't actually wear a hat on his head.  Instead, we used them as centerpieces.  Doesn't this just scream "BOY"??
I made these in Lil' Luna style...
*I used circle dot stickers as polk-a-dots
* I added some paper pinwheels with glittered cardstock 1's.
* My favorite part is the ruffled crepe paper around the edges.  Is there anything more lovely than ruffled crepe paper??
Using my Cricut, I cut out the fabric for the birthday boy's onesie, and ironed it on.
(If you'd like to know more about how to do this, see this tutorial.)


The birthday party was SO sweet!  So many fun moments.


And is there anything more precious than watching a one-year-old try to eat their own birthday cake??  There was cake EVERYWHERE by the time this little guy was done!
Have a happy day!
