When we found out that our first baby was a boy, I proceeded to do two things: bought a baby blue rug for the currently neutral nursery, and began scouting first birthday party themes.
I can’t explain why, but for some reason I had just always looked forward to planning birthday parties. Maybe it’s because I love a good theme. Or perhaps it’s because first birthday parties are so dang cute. Either way, it was way more fun than planning my wedding. And much cuter.
For the theme, I knew I wanted something cute, yet not cartooney; sweet, with a touch of sentiment. And of course, a theme that fit a warm summer day in the backyard.
Cue, the Hundred Acre Woods.
