Maxon's Little Buckaroo 1st Birthday

Picture of the birthday boy and I.

My son Maxon's 1st Birthday went off without a hitch. I went with the Cowboy theme (so fun). My creative juices were so over flowing with ideas for the party. The first thing I made was the bandanna bunting. It was a super simple no sew project. I made two of them and hung one on the stairs and the other draped across the window's on the opposite wall.

I made the table runner as well. I bought the banner and matching cake plates from a new website I found called They have some cute stuff that you can't find in the stores!

The cake I made all by myself. I'm very proud with how it turned out. The little cowboy boots I found the week of the party for $1 at a thrift store. Now if that was not meant to be.


I wish I could take credit for the outfit but, that was one of my many great finds on Ebay.

All of the kids received hats and bandannas in their favorite colors as a keepsake.
Here is Maxon's big sister Sophia sporting hers.

The adults (Grandma's) had fun with them too!

Happy 1st Birthday to my Lil Hubba Bubba!
