Well, we survived Chase's 1st birthday party! Our friends and family that love Chase joined us at a local park to play, eat, and celebrate our precious boy.
I wanted to do a post for all my friends that have parties coming up.
Does everyone know Dollar Tree sells helium balloons? They can be $4-6 at the grocery store or party city.
Another one of my good ideas was putting everything in old diaper boxes. It made transporting things to and from the park a lot easier.
Some mistakes I made: thinking Hubby and my Dad could do the set up and decorate part of the party. I stayed home with Chase which was good but when I got there not much had been done and all the guests had arrived.
I wanted the bbq started at 11:30 but apparently someone else had a better idea. It ended up ok because I was able to take Chase around and try and get a picture of him with everyone. I thought it was a good idea to get pictures before he ate.
We didn't hire a photographer. I had my sil and friend bring their nice cameras and had to kind of beg them to take pictures for me.
Chase loved his cake that Grandma made.
I think he had fun and looked pretty cute. That's all the matters right?
Let me know if you have any other bday party questions!
