Yellow really is a joyful color which is perfectly fitting to celebrate a baby's first year in the world. Sarah shares her son's sunny celebration: You featured our baby gender reveal party in Sept. 2009. Well, our little boy, Noah, was born in Jan. 2010, and we just celebrated his first birthday. It was the perfect day. His party was everything I hoped it would be ... small, intimate, meaningful, memorable, and really focused on Noah and the joy he's brought to our family these past twelve months ... a proper ending to such a milestone year.

I let the invitations set the tone for the party. I didn't want it to be overly "themey" because, in my humble opinion, when you turn ONE, that is the theme! :) Noah is such a happy, smiley little guy, so my goal for the decorating was to play up vibrant shades of sunshine yellow. But I also wanted to add in some bright punches of cobalt blue to reflect his "all boy" personality. The inside of the invites read, "Our sunshine baby is turning one! Please join us to celebrate Noah's first birthday."

My favorite thing about his party were the cupcake toppers I made. What better way to highlight his first year than to have pictures of him from each lovable stage?! I did three dozen toppers - so there were three different pictures from each month. A picture of Noah was on the front of each topper, and the month was labeled on the back.

Thanks Sarah! Readers, find more pictures and details from Noah's party on Jack and Dizzy.
