Where the Wild Things Are Birthday Inspiration

May 21, 2016

Leo is turning ONE soon!!!!! EEEK! I seriously cannot believe it, the second kid grows up so much faster! :( I remember like it was yesterday holding that sweet newborn in my arms (see birth story here). And not to mention, he was born on MY BIRTHDAY! How special! The best gift in the world, delivering a brand new healthy baby boy in my arms. However, the worst gift ever to be in LABOR on your birthday, COME ON! But all ended well and now I get to share my birthday with him! Except, basically that means I don’t have a birthday anymore, ha, but I’m happy to celebrate him instead of me turning older!!!!! Haha :)

After browsing through Pinterest (see Leo’s 1st birthday board here), I stumbled upon this wild thing 1st birthday party and it was to die for! I LOVED the black and white with the copper pops of color. So I decided on a Where the Wild Things Are birthday party theme and have found so many fun items! Totally into black and white right now!

Here is some inspiration I’m going for to celebrate Leo turning ONE!

SEE HIS WHOLE PARTY COME TOGETHER FOR LEO’S WILD ONE –  here!


Where the Wild Things Are Party

black tie balloon, plate, party hat // gold crown // black and white crown // mini black and white party crowns // 1 cake topper // gold 1 balloon // striped romper // wild man outfit // gold moccasins // happy birthday banner // party animals invitation

I LOVE the crowns and invitation! The crowns are adjustable which was a must for Leo’s BIG head! :) And the invitation comes in a whole suite with several fun signs, thank you cards, and a bunch of other stationery that is all you need for the party. One stop shop!

And of course Mama has to match! This romper is perfect!


I can’t wait to celebrate my sweet baby!!!!
