Birthday Celebration #2: Sesame Street Birthday Part 2

I'll keep this simple and to the point. We ate yummy food, watched Mason do his thing with his smash cake, enjoyed delicious cupcakes, played corn hole while the kids got their craft on, opened presents and took pictures with the photo prop.

And  now I'll let the pictures do the talking...

Main Food Table: Pizza, veggie cups, fruit skewers, chips, goldfish, animal crackers, cookies, cupcakes

Mason and his smash cake. He wanted nothing to do with sitting in his highchair so we placed him on the floor and his girlfriend, McKinley, decided to join him! It was so cute!

After getting the kids cleaned up, we headed outside to run off all the food before opening presents. We had set up our corn hole boards in the backyard and also set  up a table on our deck. It was a little too hot to sit and eat outside so the table didn't get used that much. 

I had also set up a craft table for the older kids (Harper and Palmer). They loved it and helped keep them from getting bored. 

After some time outside, everyone came back in and watched as Mason opened his gifts. He wasn't really sure what to do but no worries, Harper and Palmer showed him how it was done.

And now for my favorite part of the party... our photo prop. Brian made it and painted it and I think it turned out perfect. It was a big hit!

All the kiddos were sent home with their own treat bag while the adults got to enjoy candy from the candy bar. 

By the end of the party, the kids were exhausted. That's a sure sign of a good party, right? 

Mason is blessed with so many people that love him and we can't thank everyone enough for their fellowship. And that, my friends, was Mason's first birthday party. Sesame Street Style. 

Mason's Elmo T-shirt: Braylabee's
Party Printables: Shindig Parties
Polka Dot Balloons, decorations, Paper Straws: Polka Dot Market
Plates, Napkins, Utensils: Target

Guess it's time to start thinking about his 2nd birthday party! I love party planning!
