I am so excited to finally share the details and photographs from Roman’s camp-themed first birthday party. It really was the best day. I planned and crafted for months in preparation for the big day — it was a lot of work — and it was all worth it!
Roman had such fun and so did all of his adorable cousins. It brings me such joy to look through the photographs from that special day. It is a memory that I will cherish for always, and I can’t wait to share the memories with Roman one day when he is older.
Scroll through the pictures to find out more about all of the precious party details.
For the party favors, I purchased a bunch of colorful flashlights from the dollar store. I wrote each child’s name on a mason jar tag (tags c/o Papir Vendage) and tied each tag to the flashlight with embroidery thread.
The beautiful shabby chic rag tie banner over the chalkboard is c/o The Pickled Peanut.
The heart-shaped arrows hanging from the pavilion were handmade by me. I’ll be sharing the DIY tomorrow.
The beautiful invitations were designed by Kelli Murray.
My father built and painted the awesome bean bag toss game. The bean bags and campfire pillows were handmade by a family friend.
The teepee and plush campfire are from Land of Nod.
Roman’s adorable camp vest was one of my absolute favourite details of the day. The vest is c/o Girls and Boys Clothing.
The sweet camp-themed bunting banner is c/o Baby Birdie Boutique.
We had lots of delicious food and drinks, including homemade pasta salad, hamburgers & hot dogs on the grill, and cold beer & sodas.
The sweet bunting behind us is c/o Papir Vendage and my beautiful flower headband is c/o Birdie Baby Boutique.
About midway through the party, the skies opened up and the rain poured down — but that didn’t stop us from having a blast.
The gorgeous campfire cake was made by my best friend. She stayed up until all hours of the night toasting marshmallows to make it just right!
My best friend and her mama made these adorable “worms n’ dirt” cups.
My sister made these sweet beehive cupcakes and the cute camp-themed cupcake toppers are c/o Papir Vendage.
The pastel party hats are from the Oh Joy! for Target collection.
I designed the Camp Roman logo and had it placed on these cute, vintage-style baseball hats.
For his cake smash, Roman devoured an entire cupcake. It was absolute messy adorableness.
Once again, I have to give an enormous thank you to my friends & family who came together to make Roman’s first birthday so special. I could not have done it without them. Also, I am so grateful to the incredible vendors who made every detail of the day as sweet as can be.
