Jackson's First Birthday

My baby's first birthday is right around the corner and I've started planning in full force! I'm going with a "vintage sock monkey" theme and plan on making most of the decor myself. I found some great inspiration in etsy, but I think it's a lot more fun to make things myself then pay someone to do it for me! Here are some pics of ideas I'm planning on using:

I'm not quite brave enough to try my hand at fondant so I'm having a friend make Jackson's cake and these toppers for the cupcakes:

How cute is this shirt? I'm going to get it personalized with the number "1" on the back!

I'm so excited to get started on all of the planning! Next up- what kind of food to serve!

Yay! We are also doing a sock monkey theme! I have handmade almost everything (but got a couple things done by dimpleprints on etsy (she's from my town, so it was pretty easy.)

Can't wait to see pictures!
