What a man, what a man, what a mighty good (little) man. Tara shares a party in honor of her little man's first birthday: My son Beckett was turning one, and I wanted to throw a memorable party that everyone would enjoy! Since I am a graphic designer, I naturally was really excited to design the invitations, and decided to run with a 'little man' theme, since Beckett has always been quite the little man in our lives.I made felt mustaches on sticks, as well as handmade bow ties on sticks, so guests could wear those around. I wanted to create a really fun environment, and filled the house with balloons and paper poms hung from the ceiling. I made a necktie 'Happy Birthday Beck!' banner and randomly hid mustaches on photos throughout the house.
The guests' favorite was a photo booth we set up in a corner, complete with a 'Bucket O' Props' that included big glasses, top hats, neckties and of course mustaches! Guests could feast on chocolate cigars and necktie cookies, along with cupcakes that I decorated with individual handmade bow ties. The 'little man' himself was decked out in a little tie & converse high tops and looked quite snazzy! The party was perfect not only for all the kids, but for the adults as well, who doesn't love dressing up?!
