Jennifer said this about planning the party- ”It was an absolute honor to be asked to plan a first birthday party for this little guy, Oaks! We call him Mighty Oaks! He was adopted from an orphanage in July of 2012. His parents waited soooo long for their dream to come true of being able to adopt! Oaks’ momma, Angel, is the sweetest person I have ever met! The type of person you want to surround yourself with all day long. She is always smiling, laughing and living life to the absolute fullest! Oaks has one amazing family! His daddy, Dusty, flew thousands and thousands of miles to bring him home for the rest of the family to meet… including Oaks’ big sister Auburn!
Angel was so fun and easy to work with in planning this party! Our first meeting was so easy because Angel already knew that she wanted a mustache bash. After that, it just came down to the style and colors! With this party being only a week before Christmas, I thought it would be a fun idea to have Santa show up and hand out gifts to the children! The look on the kids’ faces when he pulled out a present with their name on it was priceless.
For food, we served ‘little man’ foods, like pigs in a blanket, mini pizzas and Frito chili pies. There was also almond bark popcorn and white cheddar popcorn in cute dotted paper cones, along with veggie and fruit stache cups!
The kids LOVED the photo booth and choosing all of the different party props! The favors were Christmas ornaments with glitter mustaches tied with ribbon and wrapped in a pretty white box and silk bow!”
