for keanu’s birthday i choose to do more of a rustic nautical vibe. they are some of my favorite combinations. most of the design stores always have rustic, beachy or nautical items. so i knew it wouldn’t be difficult to find pieces to place together. over the summer he wore a lot of nautical pieces from carters. i wanted him to wear one of the outfits one last time before he outgrew them. i prepped one week before the party. last minute i know, but it worked out so much better that way. i made and crafted everything. the twelve month photo banner, the birthday sign, tissue paper flower poms, paper sailboats and cake banner. i had the best time making all these. keanu loved them all. he was so excited to see all his pictures on the photo banner.
for his birthday he slept in til eight-thirty am. we took him to his sunday swim class. the weather was absolute perfect. it was warm enough to not wear a jacket in november. once we got home we gave him a bath and put him to sleep for his nap. we had his birthday party at my mom and dad’s. it was a small get together. my dad and mom always make the best food. i also found these nautical themed photobooth props. we had lots of laugh with them. when it was time for keanu to eat his cake, he had the best reaction. i still can’t believe he is o n e.
