Everett's Alligator Themed First Birthday Party

Alligator Themed First Birthday Party

How cool is this alligator themed birthday party?! Everett is one lucky little guy. His mom Brittany of Brittany and Devin Photo Co. took the inspiration for the theme from his favorite song they sing at swim lessons. Then she put her DIY skills into full effect, transforming their kitchen into a swamp for his fun party. All of the mossy details helped set the scene along with lots of little alligator touches. The menu included party food with new, creative, themed names, like Gator Greens, Gator Eggs, and Gator Tails, but the star of the show was a six foot Subway sub posing as a ferocious alligator. Brittany added marshmallow triangles for teeth, and olives for the eyes. Guests also enjoyed a "scaly" cake by Kelly Bee Bakes. Check out all of the photos over in the full gallery!
