Jack's 1st Birthday Inspiration

I've said it before & I'm sure I will say it for the rest of my life but, I do not know where the last year went!  To keep my mind off of the fact that I'm about to have a 1 year old & my heart from completely breaking I have been in full party planning mode for the last few months but, especially the last few weeks!

When trying to decide on a "theme" - yes, I went there & his party will be one of those big blow out types too, judge away.  ;)  Anyways, back to the theme... His birthday falls right in the middle of the Fort Worth Stock Show and Matt & I are both small town/country people & I grew up around rodeos & such.  So, I knew I wanted it to be some sort of western theme.  When thinking about all the traveling we did within Jack's first year of life we decided to take it a step further & do a "Made in Texas" theme.  We LOVE Texas & we love to travel the state - near & far so, it was a no brainer!  I've done quite a bit of research & digging and found so much inspiration from western theme parties & showers... I can't wait to put it all together come Saturday!

The big Texas picture gave me inspiration to have a map of Texas with Jack's pictures pinned to it in all the different places we've visited this year.  I can't wait to see his cake when I pick it up Friday - although it won't be the shape of Texas it will be the Texas flag with some other additions to it.  The western rubber ducks are part of the goody bags - along with Sheriff badges & mini bottles of bubbles.  I tried to make them fun for all ages!  I'm going to pick up a bundle of yellow roses and display them around the house along with a banner of pictures I've taken each month.

And since everyone has received their invitations I thought I would share it today too!  I created this myself in PicMonkey & printed them out at Walgreens for a few cents each.  My mom often created our birthday invitations growing up & I think it's something I will enjoy doing throughout the years as well!  I'm pretty proud of my first one for Jack!

  1. What a fun theme, lady! Can't wait to see it all come together.

  2. Too cute and so unique! You have a lucky little guy. Kudos on making the invitations yourself :) Nicely done!

  3. This is so stinking cute! I love the Texas theme! And those invites are adorable. Can't wait to see how it all turns out!

  4. The places I saw here are really wonderful, celebrating a special event like this with the beauty of nature is really cool. When you are in these venues in Los Angeles, there's nothing you can do than to be happy. I really liked it here.
