Here’s the breakdown of what I did:
I bought almost everything from Etsy or Amazon.
Happy Birthday balloons – Amazon | 1st birthday sign – Etsy
1st Birthday Milestones Poster – Etsy (I took the files and got them printed on an 18″ x 24″ poster board at FedEx, then set it up on a tabletop easel) | Tabletop Easel – Michaels
Peter Rabbit Cupcake Toppers & Cupcake Liners – Etsy or Meri-Meri | Newborn-12 Months Peter Rabbit Photo Banner – Etsy (I had these printed at Walgreens, then I ordered twine, clothespins, and command hooks to hang them) | Tiny Clothespins & Twine for banner – Amazon
“One” Bunny & Carrot Banner – Amazon | Carrot & Twine Balls Vase Filler – Etsy (but it’s out of stock now, so I’ll link something similar from Target)
White and Powder Blue Balloons – Party City | “Hudson is One” Cake Topper – Etsy
I’m so sad I didn’t get any photos of the food! I actually ordered from a local sandwich shop. (The Real Italian Deli) We got gourmet sandwiches cut in half and antipasto salad. I also ordered two Chinese Chicken salads from a local Italian spot (Mario’s Italian Cafe). The rest of the food was just from grocery stores. Cupcakes, chocolate chip cookies, and BBQ lays from Ralphs. Juanita’s tortilla chips and fresh guacamole from Albertsons. Cantina salsa and pico de gallo from Whole Foods.
#3 The Cake (vegan)
For the cake I had a big dilemma because Hudson is allergic to both dairy and eggs. We don’t have a lot of dessert/cake places around the desert, so I knew I would have to make it myself. I actually used a box cake mix and substituted things to make it dairy and egg free! Here’s a link to the blog where I found the recipe. I decorated the cake myself. I used premade frosting, sprinkles from Target, and I used cake decorating tools from Amazon.
That’s pretty much all the details from the little party that we had. We kept the party pretty small, but overall the party was very affordable. The decor was a lot of semi-DIY, which is about as good as it gets with me. I didn’t go ALL out on the Peter Rabbit theme, like I could have. I wanted Hudsy’s party to be cute and memorable, but not to break the bank. It ended up being perfect and super fun. Remember, in the end it’s about celebrating your sweet baby boy or girl. They will love anything you do!
