Best Sesame Street Themed Birthday Party Ever — My God Son Turned ONE!

13 Sep

I spent the weekend prepping for and attending an amazing first birthday party. My wonderful god son Liam turned one over the weekend and to celebrate his mother threw him the mother of all first birthday parties. The chosen theme of the day was Sesame Street, and his fabulous mommy should really be an event planner, because she went ALL out, and it showed. It was a backyard barbecue-style event that was decorated so fabulously it looked as if we were having a block party right on Sesame Street. The kids got to get their faces painted by an awesome artist (PattySweetCakes), jump around in the giant bouncer, and take a swing at the piñata. Meanwhile, us adults enjoyed one of the last beautiful days of summer and munched on yummy dishes like guava empanadas, shrimp shish-kabob, and sliders. It was truly the perfect party!

Look at what you can do for your little one with the right patience, planning, and persistence, on a very practical budget. (And if you want to know where she got some of the fabulous one of a kind details, just holler, and I’ll share all the details.) I can tell you that the one of a kind cake is another great creation from Anne over at Pink Cake Box. Happy, Happy Birthday Liam!

Each day the gang at People Magazine’s ask their 987,724 Twitter followers (@PEOPLEPets) to submit their cutest pet photos, and they select a daily winner. Well, I only found out about this yesterday, and I submitted this awesome pic of my cute shoes and my even cuter Yorkie Karma today, and guess what?!? She won! She’s their star of the day. And, I quote: “Talk about star quality – Karma the Yorkie has it! Congrats to @ManWifeDog, you won today’s #cutepic contest!” This was one of my favorites from our fabulous Engagement Session with Di Bezi Photography on the Hoboken waterfront (where we fell in love!).  Visit her blog to see more shots from the shoot!

Our baby’s famous today. I even got a few @replies about the shoes. If you’re interested, I found them at DSW and they’re by Guess. I found them in the spring, but here’s an updated version if you’re interested!

Special thanks to Diana from Di Bezi Photography for taking the lovely photo!
