Holden's Modern Neon Dinosaur First Birthday Party!

Holden has always taken his monthly pictures with a stuffed dinosaur so I knew early on we would be planning a dinosaur first birthday party! His love for dinos or more like my love for dinos only grew throughout the year and I started to get so excited for his party! I decided to add a neon element after I found these super cute invitations and dinosaur prints from this Etsy shop,  Design Fancy Party. Adding neon was super easy because I had tons of decor left over from Stephanie & Johnny's neon wedding! LOVE to reuse and repurpose! 

Here is the birthday boy after a nice bottle of milk!

This was the most delicious cake! So sad to smash it!

Ham & Cheese Sliders

veggie shots

dinosaur gummies...these were a hit!

pudding cake...gahh give me all the pudding cake!

dinosaur chicken nuggets

and of course we had to have our chocolate chip cookies! Thanks Aunt Stephy!

We just spray painted these dinosaurs and added little party hats! 

lemonade and water with limes! We also had RAWR RAHR Beer but I forgot to take a picture....thought it was kind of cute :)

Dinosaur print from, Design Fancy Party.
The triangle backdrop is actually the vinyl backdrop I used for Gavin's Soccer Party. I just flipped it over and added black triangles I traced from a sheet of black vinyl.




We did a time capsule for Gavin's First Birthday Party so we wanted to do the same thing for Holden, of course!
We hung a few of his Project 365 collages from the bar.
