Jett's Birthday Party

I just realized that I haven't posted anything about Jett's 1st birthday party...
I thought about either not having one at all (just doing something with family) or having one for him and Isaac combined, but then I got all weepy about how this is the last "1st birthday" we'll have for our kids.  Needless to say, we had one.  :) 
I'd been entertaining the idea (if I decided to have a party) of having a Dr. Seuss theme.  I love all the bright colors, and everything Dr. Seuss is just so cute!  I found some amazing ideas online, but trying to pull it all together was a little bit hard.  Have you ever tried to find anything related to Dr. Seuss in a craft store?  Let me save you some time - you can't.  Oh sure, I found tons of amazingly cute things I could make from craft supplies, but honestly, I'm not all that crafty.  So I wandered through Joanns and Hobby Lobby looking and looking for things that I could possibly make to somewhat resemble the awesome pictures I found on the internet.  Not so much.   I mean, his party turned out cute, but I had a much grander picture in my head of what I wanted it to look like.  Is grander a word?  Oh, and also, you can't find a Dr. Seuss cake anywhere, unless you'd like to mortgage your house to pay for it.

Okay, enough about that...on with the pictures. 

The invitation:

The decorations:

{The banner is Jett's monthly picture from birth to 1 year}

{We started out with 2 fish - named, Red and Blue - but one of them died about 2 hours after we got them home.  That is precisely why I got 2. :) }

The presents:

The cake:

Thing 1 and Thing 2 - aka Drew and Mariah ;)

I still can't believe my baby is 1!
