Last weekend, we celebrated Andrew’s first birthday with a Curious George Birthday Party. Andrew LOVES Curious George and it was really the only thing I could imagine for a theme for his party.
For those of you saying, “OMG, Andrew is ONE already?” — he won’t actually turn one until Friday. But due to lots of impending travel, last weekend worked better into our schedule. Look for a sob-filled post reliving the day he was born then. Moving on.
I tried not to go overboard with the whole Curious George thing. Instead, I went more with a general red, blue and yellow color scheme and served foods that both adults and kids could enjoy. We tried to have the party outside — it was a beautiful day — but it was too windy, as you can see in my photos of the banner above the table. So we quickly moved the festivities indoors. That suited my dad, my brother and The Nerd — who were engrossed in the Texas A&M/Alabama football showdown — just fine.
We got Andrew a swing set for his birthday, and he received lots of fun presents from our family and friends in attendance! I think his cousins were more excited to open presents than he was, haha!
Soon, it was time for the best part of a birthday party — the DESSERT! I ordered Andrew’s Curious George Cake from Hands-On Cake Design. I just LOVED it! And the smash cake was too cute! We also served ice cream and I had a Milk and Cookies Bar for the kids. They loved it!
Andrew wasn’t too keen on the smash cake. He put his fingers in it for a bit, but that was about the extent of it. Ah well. I’m sure next year he’ll be even more into it!
It was such a great party. I’m so glad we got to celebrate our Little Dude’s birthday with all of you!
