Best Kids Parties: Little Man

My Party

Name: Levi (1)
Location: United States

I chose a Little Man party theme for Levi's first birthday. I saw the idea several places and fell in love when he was still in my womb....and when we did not know if we were having a boy or girl. I decided, if its a boy, this is what I am doing for his first birthday party!

My husband made some awesome invites to set the tone for the party. I tried to incorporate all things mustache and ties. I made chocolate mustaches of course. The menu consisted of "Poker Chips", "Mr. Fruit", "Pretzel Cigars", "Bowtie Pasta", and "Man-wiches."

We had a photo booth with manly props, a bucket to make a prediction for Levi's future manhood, some manly coloring pages, and bubbles, balls, etc. for kiddos to play with. For decor, I used balloons in orange, green, and blue; a couple colorful buntings made of scrapbook paper; centerpieces made of baby food jars filled with Sixlets, mustache quotes, and photos of Levi.

My favorite elements are the napkins that have neckties on them (cannot remember where I found them online), the awesome bunting made of photos of Levi with a mustache photo-shopped on (I grinned the entire time I spent making these because it was amazing and genius), and all the wonderful family and friends that joined us to celebrate our Little Man. I handmade almost everything for the party, except for those napkins that I cannot remember where they are from.

Thanks Leitia! Readers, say hello to Leitia at Mrs. McHugh.
