Best Kids Parties: Honest Abe

My Party

Name: Abe, 1
Location: Batavia, NY

The first birthday party is always extra fun to plan because the little ones aren’t old enough to demand what theme they want. For my little Abe I couldn’t resist the ‘Honest Abe’ theme once it crossed my mind. 

Abraham Lincoln has some fantastic quotes so we used that along with the color copper as inspiration for decorating. I used an iron on transfer to make the Honest Abe shirt. We painted wooden utensils with copper paint and spray painted cans to go along with the copper color theme. We pulled out a vintage table and butter churner for the desserts and drinks and decorated with vintage books and copper accessories. We used copper wire and wooden dowels to hang the Lincoln quotes. 

Our parties are always a family affair. Abe's Uncle Mike crafted this amazing copper cake stand for the party and I love the tiny silhouette cake topper Auntie Manda made! She also made the delicious 'White Out' white chocolate cake and little top hat cookies. My niece Caitlin spray painted the letters copper and hot glued pennies on for the Honest backdrop. She also painted the wooden silhouette.

Thanks, Marla!
