Over the weekend we hosted some of our friends and family at our home to celebrate Sebastian’s first birthday with a Very Hungry Caterpillar party. I am not a party thrower professional, and tend to get stressed out, but my sister and step mom helped me out and I think we came up with a cute party for a favorite little boy. And, it was so much fun! Totally not the stress I’m used to when it comes to party throwing. Many many thanks to those who showed up to give my boy sweet love on his first birthday party! You guys truly made the day special!
We ordered a bounce house for the kids (and Tio) and thank goodness we did – my house was saved a pretty decent thrashing because the kids were all outside enjoying the beautiful weather. I loved watching them bounce around the party with their caterpillar antennas (aka party hats), enjoying themselves. The entry table had several pretty jars were filled with festive fruits and a few cute pictures of birthday boy (I’ll post pictures from that photo shoot soon).
I kept it simple with the food by ordering sandwiches from our favorite sub shop. I made a few salads and put out some fruit to round out our lunch. The pesto pasta salad was a hit, and the kids got a kick out of the caterpillar grape skewers. I’m pretty sure nobody noticed, but I punched holes through all the pieces of watermelon… you know, because the caterpillar ate through them
We set up a photo booth type area that turned out to give me some really sweet images. Here is my brother and sister-in-law, who traveled from California to be with their nephew. I just love these two! And so do Alina and Sebastian.
We love our boy, as do so many people in our lives. It was truly a memorable Very Hungry Caterpillar party! Sebastian, I hope you love looking back at these photos as much as I enjoyed taking them. You really had a great day, and I am surprised at how well you hung in there with the big kids. You are such a cool boy, and I’m thrilled to be watching you grow!
