Birthday Beach Bash!!

Saturday was Grayson's First Birthday Party! The theme was a beach bash and was too cute!  We held the party outside but rented some canopies to help protect from the heat.  The colors of the party were turquoise, orange and lime green.  I normally like to make a lot of the decorations because it makes the party special and more cost effective.  However, this month has been so very crazy and I did not want to be super stressed leading up to the party.  I purchased a lot more than I normally would.  The whole idea started when I found sand buckets at Micheals for $1 in the exact colors I loved!  So I bought them to go down the center of the tables with picks and ribbon coming out of the top.

The favor table- for some reason I did not get a picture of the favors! 
We gave out Rayban look alike sunglasses that were adorable!!

For some reason the balloons look lighter than what they really were

 Birthday hat!!

The cake!  It was so yummy!! 

Time for cake!!!

He ripped off the decorations on his high chair ha! 


No really...I'm done!!!

Off to the bath! 

Time for presents!!

Tyler is the best helper!!

Sweet birthday boy

Sweet babies playing with chalk!!  

Gray was a little grumpy the whole time I did not get a good picture of his outfit!!!  I need to because my friend Rebecca made it and I LOVED it!  It matched perfectly!!!

What a great way to celebrate being a whole year old!!!  We are so thankful for everyone's love and support over the past year!  It was a great day!!

What a fabulous party for your little man! I love all of the special touches and color scheme. I can tell that y'all had such a good time!

Does his hair have red in it? I don't think I've noticed it as much before but it looks reddish to me in these pics.

P.S. Miss you on twitter =)

Love his party! I can't believe your baby is a year old. Also I'm jealous of your heat. :-)
