Sweet little boy had the best first birthday party I could have ever imagined for him. This celebration was so special to me, almost as special as our wedding day, I think it meant so much to me because it marked the first year that we have had this most precious gift in our lives, it marked the first year we had as new parents, it marked the first year as a family of three, and we made it! I would give this little boy the world if i could so I wanted to celebrate his life in a fun way that everyone who loves him and has helped pray over him, supported us, and cared for him would all enjoy. Needless to say the party went seemlessly, and I am grateful for every single guest who shared our joy and celebrated on that special day, as well as all of the shops who came together to help me throw this wonderful pow wow to commemorate his first year of life. Your daddy and i treasure every day with you.. heres to being ONE! 

First lets start with all of the dessert table details because it was my favorite...

^^i used adhesive spray to add glitter to these little shot glasses filled with milk, and top with homemade cookies for the win!^^^

^^This too die for fabric banner is made by the same sweet shop (Vintage Green Limited) who custom designed Cashs nursery/babyshower banner. She was kind enough to custom make this one for his party and it was just what i wanted^^

^^^Cupcake arrow toppers & cake teepee topper as well as the cake cash banner below all custom made c/o Ms Apple... you must check her shop out for your party planning needs^^^

^^^Sweet Andrea from Cake Walk Desserts makes these pie pops, they are all different flavors and designs and come individually wrapped with the cutest little bow. These are not only the cutest thing you have ever seen but the best pie you have every tasted..drool^^^

^^Cash's delicious cake & tiny small cake was made by one of my best friends, she really should start a business, she understood exactly what i wanted and surpassed my expectations^^

^^^We put all of the gifts inside the teepee which was a perfect spot^^^

^^The little details and extra touches were so fun, my sister helped me make this streamer banner & we added in some glitter feathers (use the same spray adhesive and sparkles as i mentioned above)^^

^^I made labels with scrap booking paper, and had cute little DIY arrows made of ribbon and paper all over the party for decor. I filled the dessert table with hand made lemon vanilla cupcakes, donut holes, pie pops, chocolate chip cookies & cake!^^

^^I made the arrow banners DIY with scrap booking paper and burlap string. Those gorgeous tassel banners were hand crafted c/o Love Garland and i just melted over how perfectly they got those colors to match our theme^^
^^I have no hung this little cash cake banner from his nursery shelf,...multi purpose use! YOU need one!^^^

^^^Napkins, plates, balloons etc from Party city. I sprayed large mason jars with adhesive and covered with chunky and regular glitter^^^

^^^Those adorable signs all had bible verses on them about being a child of God, these were made c/o The Meek Boutique who made our sweet Christmas cards, we are so grateful for her friendship^^^

^^^We did a chili bar with toppings and had sides like these pigs in a blanket, mac & cheese, pulled pork, corn bread and other western food^^^

^^^my sweet friend Mia & her hubbies made these cute labels for us, they were just the perfect extra touch^^^

^^brown & orange chevron/sriped straws from Michaels with Mason Jars with adorable rustic lids^^

^^I made these for anyone who forgot to dress up who was feeling a little indian inspired^^

^^Cutest little favor bags for Cash's friends, "enjoy the loot" c/o Details On Demand^^

^^Sweetest Pow wow Birthday Invitations c/o Kelli Murray, envelopes from Michaels crafts store^^

^^these hand painted thank you cards c/o Taylor Town Design Shop are UNREAL. Each wrapped in a beautiful string for a special touch. She water colors these and her cards are always front & back! So adorable!^^

^^I pretty much died over Cash's entire outfit, these leggings are too much c/o of Hold You Me ^^^

^^Cant even handle these little bootie shorts, those arrows and guns stole my heart the moment i saw them, these are c/o Little Cowboys & Indians^^

^^Likely Baby Story custom designed this adorable horse with a headdress on for my sweet boy on his birthday. I couldnt have loved it more. She hand paints these, it cant get more personal/specialized than that!^^

^^Love Crush Bowtique was sweet enough to design both Cash and i our own indian headdress', i sure felt like an indian princess and this little stud was the hit of the party with is cute little birthday crown^^

^^Cake Smash arrow bib c/o Cora Mae Design was a perfect match for our little indian prince^^

Thats one happy boy!

^^DIY arrow banner, DIY wooden "ONE" letters i painted and used fabric & feathers to make the little headdress decor at the top^^

^^I ordered these online from printsagram, they print little squares straight from your instagram!^^

^^I made a DIY photobooth with a wall of balloons in the wine room (which was the perfect back drop because of the western vibe)^^
All props c/o Wedding Photo Booth were such a hit with everyone young and old!

^^..& a nursing session selfie to remember this past 12 months I nourished this little boy.. we started the weaning process and its been a little emotional on my end, Cash it doing great though^^
