As you enter the house, there's a 12 month banner. It's numbered 1-12 and on each numbered panel there is a picture associated with him at that age. I purchased some balloons from the grocery store to liven up the area. The "J" is from Michael's for added color. The book you see is a Dr. Seuss birthday book that each guest signed a little message for Jason so that he can look back over the years and see the sweet messages everyone left him. The frame is a little poem about him turning one and to leave written message for him on any page. I did a video you will see at the bottom which will go into more depth on the poem and each item.
This is a picture of the cake and some of the fun treats. I didn't make the cake, but I just love it!
Here's another picture of a decoration that I made with the terra cotta pots. I also found glass jars that I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut vinyl to apply on the glass. It had the Cat in the Hat fish and it say, "One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish" I filled it with Goldfish crackers. I also found cute red and yellow frames at Michael's to put a cute description name of what everything was.
Below is a picture of the Lorax Nutter Butter Bars that I made with melted chocolate and edible candy eyes from Michael's. The "Green Eggs and Ham" are flat pretzels with melted chocolate and a green M&M on top.
This is the photo prop area where I had two painted blue frames, two Dr. Seuss hats, a boa for the girls and a red polka dot tie for the guys.
This is my grandson soaking it all in. The banner on his high chair I made so that he has his own personal celebration banner!
I didn't take pictures of everything so be sure to check out this video so that you can see the water bottles all decorated and some great ideas for gift bags for older and younger children. :0)
