The theme all started with a tie onesie I was gifted at Tyler's baby shower, long before we decided on a name. I photographed him in this sweet onesie for his 'One Month' photo and the theme just stuck.
So a TY Bash it was...
"Around your neck or in your hair,
ties will be everywhere!"
|My very favorite party photos of our little Bud!|
We used golf tees to pin down balloons all over the back yard for the kids to run through.
|Invitation, tie shaped cake, and table setting.|
Invitation: LiliesoftheField Etsy Shop
|There is a lack of tie themed party favors in stores, so it was time to get creative making tie cups and serving plates. By Googling silhouettes of ties, I printed, cut scrapbook paper, and taped with clear packing tape.|
|Adding more bow tie theme to clear plastic serving plates.|
|Our "Time Capsule" to be opened 17 years from now. Guests wrote Ty a message, prophetic word, or prediction of what he might be when he grows up.|
The idea came from "Keeping Up With The Morgans" Blog. I love it!! Such a great keepsake!
|Water Squirter Party Favors from the Dollar store with Bow Tie name tags. |
Nice for cleaning off all the cake in the pool.
|Our fun photo prop for all of the guests to take with the Birthday Boy!|
Aunt Ciera & (One day Uncle) Sam here!
|Ty's favorite part was the Bubble Machine. Gosh, you should see all the faces he made! Hilarious!|
|The giant "Doritos" ball, courtesy of Frito Lay Pawpaw, was a big hit!|
|Very surprisingly, The Cake, however, was not!|
|He needed a little help to get into it.|
|Okay....maybe a lot of help!|
|Ty couldn't have been more proud of his Big Boy Chair he got from his Mimi & Papa.|
It made a great photo prop to go along with his 1st year milestone sign.
I made the sign using black foam board and free handed using chalk. It took hours, in case you were wondering.
A great tutorial can be found again here at "Keeping Up With the Morgans."
The style idea came from PrincessSnap on Etsy.
|The best family photo we could manage to get. Anna was obviously not amused. lol.|
Our handmade neck ties, I made using a tutorial from "VanillaJoy."
Happy 1st Birthday, Tyler!!
Thank you to all who spoiled our little guy and made his day a very special one!
