a wild things first birthday party

before my nephew henry, was born, my sister knew she wanted to have a "where the wild things are" first birthday party for him! this was such an amazing and fun party to plan and design. we went all out with paper, food, dessert + activities! to see more photos, click here.

  one of my favorite things to design for this party was all of the bunting signs! we had 4 different sets around the house!

  one can never have enough custom cups in their life! this design features henry's logo i created for him! i played off of his name and added an arrow that points to the left, since his middle name is west! we ordered two different chevron straws because we couldn't decide what color we liked better!
