Sawyer's 1st Birthday: A Classic Winnie the Pooh Party

Just two months ago we were celebrating one whole year with Sawyer. It's one of those big moments that has always lingered in my mind, but when the day arrived, it was hard to believe. Time has really flown by, just as everyone said it would. The days are long but the years are short. We've been living the reality of all those typical phrases I'm sure you've heard.

We celebrated Sawyer's birthday with a big party at our home with family and friends. I chose to go with a classic Winnie the Pooh theme because I selfishly loved Winnie the Pooh when I was a little girl. I figured this may be one of the few chances I would have to pick a sweet theme that didn't involve action figures. 

My wonderful mom prepared and set up all of the food. She has a catering business so this little party was a breeze for her and she was a lifesaver for me. Everything was so delicious. 

Oh and did I mention that my talented girlfriend did all of the flower arrangements. It took a village to pull this party off but it was all possible with the help of family and good friends.

Sawyer's only focus was the balloons. 
Meanwhile, the bigger kids enjoyed the jump castle outside. 

He was not a fan of the cake and I will take partial blame for that. I ordered a lemon cake with cream cheese frosting for the guests and a plain vanilla cake with cream cheese frosting for his smash cake. There must have been some miscommunication because he ended up with a lemon cake, which did not go over well. However, if he's anything like me, sweets won't be of interest to him. 
I guess we will try again next year. 
How cute are these little  bee cupcakes?
I found a classic Winnie the Pooh story book that I used for guests to leave a message for Sawyer. 
Taking photos with kids is nearly impossible these days.
The Lowcountry Kettle Corn favors were a hit. 

We had a blast celebrating with everyone. I can't believe my baby is ONE!
