A 1st Birthday: Mustache & Bow-tie Style

I was recently invited to document a sweet little boy's 1st birthday party and his momma had the cutest ideas! I knew my Paper Pearl friends would love to see them and find out where you can find some of this party cuteness. And who doesn't love looking at a sweet little one like Hayden?!

Hayden's momma, Katie, had an idea of mustaches and bow-ties a few months ago and found a ton of great ideas and vendors with the perfect items. Guests were greated with their very own mustaches and bow-ties, they ate mustaches and ties and there was even mustache wrapping paper! We all know 1st birthdays are more for the parents, grandparents and friends so why not make it super fun for everyone? Katie kept the food as simple as she could and even recruited help from her mom, step-dad and sister-in-law. Katie and I are both in love with Zoe's Kitchen so no party would be complete without some of their chicken salad and hummus. She even had festive brownies! All you need is a box of brownie mix and a cookie cutter. Same goes for the tie sugar cookies. So easy and so fun!

Now to the star of the food table....that incredible cake! The Bakery in Athens, TN created a delicious cake that wowed everyone.

Katie is a huge fan of Etsy. Sweet Hayden's hat, outfit, party posters and his photo timeline all came from Etsy vendors. Katie also got some help from Hobby Lobby, Party City and Home Goods.

Happy 1st Birthday to Hayden! And thanks to Katie for letting me share her stylin' party!

It got real ya'll



  1. Fabulous pictures and such a creative birthday celebration!!

  2. A purchase of 5,000 bow ties, say, might take you two years to sell if you only sell about 50 each week, and it would not be cost effective for you purchase two year's supply with one order. wooden bow ties
