Henry shook up his sleepy beach community with his big birthday bash. His mom, Michelle, describes the scene: Henry loves a good party so we had to go all out on his first one - inviting his playmates as well as our dear friends in our small beach town.
As a seamstress, I felt it would be silly to pay for decorations, so I started a few months before and made Henry two birthday outfits and did all the decorations complements of my new serger. Table linens, fabric flags, pom-poms and lots of kids toys.
We took advantage of the beach weather and grilled out under a huge tent and soaked up the sun. Henry and his friends toddled around for a few hours. It was a complete success with giggles, bubbles and lots of smiles. The only cry we got was when he ate the cake- he just didn't know what to make of the cake, candle and singing. Our little ham!
