I went round and round with the theme, first it was nothing, or "1 year" bday party theme, then Elyse sent me this cutest little picture of a cupcake fish, well it was actually sorbet, but looked like a cupcake...so, that's what we went with.
Josh would say that we did too much, but I didn't spend much at all, because we borrowed and used what we had (for the most part), and the prep part was actually fun...it's not everyday we show our creative side. We invited lots of people and lots of people came:) Colt took a great nap that morning, giving us time to prepare everything, and once the party started, we had everything done and Colt was in the best mood and was a perfect angel for the whole party. The only problem with the party was Canon slept through the whole thing, Ava was out of town and Julia was out of town. So, he didn't have all of his friends there:( But Luke and Troy were there to party with him. Without further ado, here are some pictures from the party:
First and foremost, this is the outfit that Elyse made for Colt's birthday. Priceless...AND it's reversible. There's a sailboat on the other side.
This is the banner that Mandy worked SO hard on...we started on this the Thursday before the party (she thought we had an extra week...oops). It turned out awesome and now it's hanging in Colt's room...I love it!
The party food:
The cupcake fish...they are SO cute! We made them!!
This is Colt's "smash" cake:
Fish PB&J...the mold is actually a sand mold that came in one of Colt's beach toys that Nana got him.
