Stone's 1st Birthday: Vintage County Fair & Dol Janchi

This post is extremely late. It has been insane the past couple of months. Better late than never to share what I did for Stone's 1st birthday party.

As usual I starting brainstorming an idea for Stone's 1st birthday party many months prior to the big day. I knew I wanted to go all out like I did for Jett's 1st birthday, but I wanted to do it at home this time. In doing this I can accomplish what I really I want. And I have all the control in the world. Ha ha! (evil event planning laugh). No, but really it's nice not having restrictions and everything being right there.

At first I was going to do a Circus theme, but I DO NOT like clowns at all so that wasn't going to happen (the movie "It" ruined me for life). Then we met this amazing balloon artist at our favorite local Mexican restaurant and I knew I wanted to use her for his birthday. The idea then popped into my head to do a Vintage County Fair.  I had the perfect outfit for him to wear. Swoon!

Happy 1st Birthday Stone!

The week of Stone's birthday I was extremely emotional about his 1st birthday. So much happened while I was pregnant with him and his 1st year of life. It was all so bittersweet. I knew I needed to stop crying and just celebrate the miracle that God had blessed our family. Stone's 1st birthday fell on our 5th year wedding anniversary. Yes, this little stinker decided to surprise us not only being born at 35 weeks, but on our wedding anniversary. He really wanted the attention in our family. 
The day of his 1st birthday I took the day off on his birthday and we just hung out as a family. Mike made Stone birthday cake. Jett, Mike, Nee and Papa were there to sing his 1st birthday song. We wanted to take it easy since the next day was his blowout birthday bash! It was a great 5th anniversary and 1st birthday!
Happy 1st Birthday my little fighter!! You really beat all the odds that life has brought to you. You never gave up and we are so proud of you. I thought it would be so hard …

Jett's Vintage Train 3rd Birthday Party!

I was really excited about planning Jett's party because we would throw the party at our new home. So many possibilities!! I always try to brainstorm ideas months prior to the party so I can slowly come up with stuff and create them. I started to think of things that Jett was really into at this part of his life.

He loves planes, but we did that for his 1st birthday. He loves tractor, we did that for his 2nd party. Now at almost 3 he loved trains and Superman! So I asked Jett in November, "Jett do you want a choo-choo train party or Superman?" and Jett yells, "CHOO CHOO TRAIN!!" PERFECT!!


I was now thinking of things to do and how to decorate for this party. Of course everything has to start with the invitation. I created the invitation myself. I went with a old style boarding pass. 

You can now purchase this invitation, but personalized  at my Etsy store!
I printed these in cardstock and then stuffed them in kraft paper envelope that I purchased at Hobby Lobby …
