Here are a few (ha) photos from Linden's first birthday celebration a couple of weeks ago! We had a Farmers Market theme and we decked the place out in red and white gingham. It was pretty laid back and low-key with just some friends and family in attendance. We didn't want to get too crazy with it, but felt like his first birthday should be something to truly celebrate.
We had a delicious "picnic" style lunch with burgers, hot dogs, fruit baskets, kettle chips and more. And we had a little fabric backdrop for the photobooth. We took photos of all of the attendants and had them leave Linden a note. We're going to scan them in and create a little "First Birthday" memory book for him with pictures on one side and notes on the other. We also had a "Mabelcloth" at his party for his guests to sign! It's such a fun idea and can be used for 10 years, so we're going to keep it going year after year! I'm a sucker for keepsakes like that so I love that we'll be able to give that to him one day.
Instead of a traditional smash cake, Linden has a "smash pie." It was blueberry - his favorite! He loved it! Totally almost passed out in it though haha He had to retire from his party early because he was so zonked. So glad my little Duder McScooter had a great birthday! His second one will be here before we know it.
