Lumberjack 1st Birthday Party!

How is my baby ONE?! Time flies & I can’t handle it. This past year has been the best & I have so many sweet memories. Also if I am being honest there are a lot of things I have already forgot from the survival newborn stages. I just want to capture every little moment. He is my little boyfriend & I am so blessed to be his mama. He makes me want to be a better person & someone that he is proud of!

Beck’s party theme all started with his plaid moccasins! I got these moccasins & was so in love! Then at Christmas time I remembered how much I love buffalo plaid  as I saw it on wrapping paper & then I became obsessed with all things plaid & lumberjack. I decided to make a plaid wood cake after I saw a video of it being done on Facebook. I ended up making a practice one for our family pictures so Beck could have a cake smash & I am glad I practiced. The cake was a little complicated but I got better each time. It took hours & I plan on never making this cake again haha.

I loved all the little details that just made the party feel complete! Seriously my favorite thing were the wood utensils from Simply Baked. The utensils just made the theme seem so much more thought out & they took the party to the next level!

I also LOVE the Simply Baked baking cups! At first I was going to use them for the trail mix bar & then I decided I would bake cupcakes in them & I loved the way they turned out. I was a little worried about how it might be hard to eat out of the cups and was hoping I would have enough forks if people needed them. But I was so wrong, they are way easier than normal cupcake wrappers! You can rip the wrapper right off & when the wrapper is off the cupcake looks beautiful & smooth underneath & it doesn’t crumble apart at all like a normal cupcake. No forks needed! Piping the cupcakes in the baking cup was also way easier than a normal cupcake, I am so sold on these baking cups! The wood design was just too perfect & I received so many compliments about them. Simply Baked has so many fun patterns & designs & I highly recommend them for your next gathering! I totally have my eye on all their patriotic goodness!

The fun red straws are also from Simply Baked!

My favorite food item was the Trail Mix bar! I loved having a salty & sweet munching station. It was really nice to have something for guests to do as they socialized. I totally want to have some kind of station similar to this at all my parties because it helped people from not eating all the dessert until it was time for the cake to be cut while giving guests something fun to do!

Beck’s party was so much fun that we forgot to sing Happy Birthday! I felt like such a bad mom after when I realized. We also didn’t give him any cake… it was a total accident, but he was just busy opening presents & he had a donut for breakfast anyway!

I couldn’t be happier with how his party turned out & I can’t wait until his next birthday… I have already been thinking about the theme.. I may have a problem haha.

  1. Girrrrrrl. You knocked this party out of the park! Or should I say, the woods! Lol. What an absolutely adorable and unique theme. And I can tell there was so much love and thought and care poured into every detail. And that cake! It truly is a thing of beauty. You should be so proud of yourself for making not one, but two. Thoroughly enjoyed the YouTube video as well. That drone shot? Amazing. You are not only an incredible blogger and party planner and the vlogger, but you’re an amazing mama and Beck is so very blessed to have you celebrate him like this. Hugs!

    1. Lauren you are seriously the sweetest! I am so glad we have connected! Being a mom is just the best! Happy Mother’s Day!!!

  2. Love!! What a gorgeous set up, and it looks like the weather cooperated with you. Happy belated Mother’s Day McKenzie! Big props to you & your photographer, what a charming birthday party theme! Can’t wait to check out your YouTube!

    1. Thank you for everything Molly! It was so much fun and I loved every second of the day! Thanks for helping making it so perfect.

  3. What absolutely precious photos!!!! You have some serious styling skills!!!!! I bet all your parties are the best. I was really squealing with delight when I saw baby Beck’s SHOES!!!!!! I have a confession to make…I LOVE baby shoes and try to use every excuse in the book to substantiate why I should buy them…never mind my babies are grown and have flown the coop!!! That is one super handsome little guy you have there…sweetie don’t blink—they grow up right before your eyes!!!!

    1. Ah thank you so much! That made my day! Baby shoes are the best! Just so tiny and perfect. I am trying to soak in every moment! Thanks for your sweet words!

  4. […] Here’s another way to incorporate the clever So Plaid You Came Sign. […]

  5. This is styled so well! I love all the great details! Where did you find your felt letter board? I’ve found quite a few but they just seem so pricey.

    1. Thank you so much Meagan! They are for sure! This one if from Letterfolk but I got it as a gift. I have seen some good ones on Amazon and Instagram, I would just search hashtags for instagram shops that sell them! I have used it soooo much though that it has been worth the price for me.
