Every child’s first birthday is special, even if they don’t remember it! My son entered the world a little dramatically and had to spend some time in the NICU. So celebrating his birth was especially important to me. I really wanted to make it fun for everyone!
We already had the cute tepee, a gift given to me by a dear friend at my baby shower. I used it as the inspiration for the party. I made everyone a feather headband (using this DIY tutorial) to wear so that we all felt festive! We served brawts, sliders, texas caviar and sweet potato fries on bamboo plates. My mom and I made gingerbread moose cookies for the table and shortbread tepee cookies to take home as “camp treats.” We opened gifts and then everyone wrote a “camp note” to Sullivan… so that even though he probably won’t remember his first birthday, he can read about it one day!
