Please Note:

From 2011-2016, we had an inspiration blog featuring nurseries, baby showers, parties, and portraits that were submitted to us by photographers, designers, and parents. We no longer accept submissions or post new blog content, but we have left the archive here for those who have saved this content, or for new readers looking for inspiration.

Little Man Themed Birthday Party

When Carter was born, he immediately earned the nickname "Our Little Man", after he arrived looking just like a little old man. This cute nickname became the theme for his very first birthday party, designed and photographed by his mom, Misty Reeves of misty pictures. You might remember the darling school bus themed party Misty designed that we featured last year. Misty created the invitations, which feature some fun adhesive mustaches. The rest of the paper goods were all designed to coordinate.

Some of the cute little party details included a menu of "manwiches", a "Wet your Whisker" bar, and of course plenty of mustaches for guests to wear. Guests also took home a candy bar wrapped up in a custom label with info about Carter's first year. They also each wrote a note to the birthday boy on cards with photos from Carter's cake smash photoshoot. To check out more photos from this party, visit the full gallery!
