Our first of probably many tractor birthday parties...

Yesterday LP had his first birthday party.  We invited LP's grandparents, aunts, uncle, great-grandparents and one of his great-great aunts for the celebration.  I decided to do a tractor theme for his birthday since he enjoyed riding in tractors and combines so much in his first year of life.

Here is a look at the invitations we sent.  I used LP's footprint to make a tractor on the front cover of the card and the party information was in the inside:


For party decorations I made a pennant banner with red star scrap booking paper and photos from the past year of LP in tractors.  I also made a collage of tractor photos that welcomed everyone for the front doors.


For food we had a macaroni & cheese and mashed potatoes (LP's favorite foods) bar.  I made bacon, ham and sauteed green peppers & onions for the toppings.  Everyone really enjoyed the meal!  I also made a chocolate cake and then cut it and decorated it to look like a tractor.  I also made homemade ice cream to go with.


LP had a great time spending time with all of our family members, opening his presents and eating his cake and ice cream.  Part of me can't believe he is already one year old but at the same time I feel like he has been apart of our family always.  This past year has been so much fun, such a joy and a wonderful blessing!
