I decided it would be fun to have a theme for Gibson's 1st Birthday (we didn't do a theme for Harper's 1st)...and I couldn't think of anything cuter or boyish then dinosaurs!!! Luckily, I have a very talented friend that helped me out with the decorations...she made a fabulous banner, door sign and cupcakes toppers for me and they turned out perfect! Balloons (always a hit with the toddlers), a picture collage of Gibson and a candy-filled mason jar completed the decorations. We served brunch so we had muffins, donut hole skewers, mini quiche, sausage, fruit salad, bagels and cream cheese and your standard kiddo food. We also had some tasty adult beverages, Bloody Mary's and Mimosas which are very important to have at a kid's birthday party (or at least one that you attend at our house). Oh, and of course we had cupcakes with really sugary and colorful frosting!! We had fun celebrating with a lot of our friends but the highlight was definitely when Gibson ate his cupcake, priceless! Here's to a year that has already gone by, we had some rough times but I barely remember those now...can't wait to see what he has in store for us next!
