If you haven’t noticed, I closed my shop for the week. I am working on several orders and a ton of new and exciting things that I can’t wait to show you!!! In the meantime, I thought I would take a break from working (and sleeping too) to share this absolutely perfect birthday party.

Recently, I was contacted by an adorable Mommy named January! I can’t say enough about how much I have really enjoyed being “friends” with her. She is also a Mommy of BOYS and she enjoys planning parties. We are like two peas in a pod!

Her adorable son Reeves’ just celebrated his first birthday! The party was over the fourth of July weekend and appropriately, she went with a red, white, and blue color theme. I don’t think she had originally intended on it being a patriotic color scheme, but that was how it evolved and it was simply perfect.

Well, I’d like to say I had a lot to do with this amazing birthday party, but I didn’t. I was just responsible for the birthday invitations. I think they turned out perfect, but January is really the one that deserves ALL the credit!!

Here was my {small} contribution to this grand event! This was an adaptation of another invite I have in my shop (I know, I know, it’s closed, but it’ll be open soon)!

January took my invitation design one step further and created an extra special place for the invitation and displayed it at the party. Oh, how that just makes my day. Thanks January for making me feel so special. Isn’t this cute??

The whole party looks simply amazing. There wasn’t a single detail that January missed. She really went all out for Reeves’ party. I hope you have a way to top this next year!? I am just amazed with all the personal touches too. Some of my favorites include the huge cupcake stand and the paper lanterns. I also love the candy buffet! Nice work January!!

January was nice enough to send me her party collages to share with you! Didn’t she do an amazing job? I can’t wait to work with January on future projects. She’s super creative and it’s nice having someone who you can bounce ideas off of. I think this is the beginning on a new friendship. Thank you again for sharing Reeves’ birthday with us!!
