Jack's First Birthday Party: Lil' Firecracker

Mikaelah and I were very happy to make decorations and treat bags for little Jack's first birthday. And with "Lil' Firecracker" as the theme, everything was red, white and blue.

First things first: The party needed a fun and festive sign for the front door. Nothing like a firecracker inspired "1" to let guests know they were at the right place!

Jack's mother provided pictures as inspiration of what she was looking for, so this is how we customized this handmade tissue paper wreath for the firecracker theme. 

And even the very last detail matters to us, so we made sure to seal the edges of the wreath with coordinating ribbon.

And what's a kid's birthday party without the treat bags? Tied off on the top with red and blue ribbon and handmade gift tags.

This "Lil' Firecracker" banner was made especially for the birthday boy. His mother had requested this to hang above a photo collage of pictures taken of him each month. What a cute idea!

(I soon found that it's difficult to get a good picture of the banner without it hanging at the party! Please bear with the pictures of it in my entry way!)

We also created a "Happy 1st Birthday Jack" banner, strung together with white tulle. Loved the red, white and blue papers that Mikaelah chose for this banner.

J-A-C-K spells the birthday boy! With some added stickers for a fun touch.

Here is the photo collage created to hold the monthly pictures of little Jack. I can just picture it with photos of a precious little newborn, with chubby little cheeks! 

We loved having the opportunity to create decorations for little Jack's big day. We hope he had a great party!
