This whale themed nautical party, as seen on Hostess With The Mostess, was inspired by the Pottery Barn Kids Jackson Nursery Bedding set that I almost chose for my son’s bedroom. Chase was 10 days late when he was born so I was literally sitting around for 10 days with not much to do while we ‘patiently’ waited for him to arrive. Since I’m a planner by nature I decided to start planning his 1st birthday. Yes, you read that right; I started planning his birthday before he was even here!
Everything was meticulously planned out from the invitations, which I custom made, to the rope covered serving tray that held the cookies that matched the invitations perfectly. It was a family affair, with baked goods from my sister and sewing projects courtesy of my mother.
My favorite element of his party was the ‘1st Year’ Book that I created for him through Shutterfly. I created a photo book, similar to a yearbook, which contains pictures of him throughout the year. We had guests at his party sign the book just like you would do for a school yearbook. I’m planning on doing one for him every year.
