Our sweet baby Carson turned ONE last week! The days may feel long sometimes but when a whole year goes by as fast as this one did, I can’t help but pause and reflect on just how precious each moment is. Even the simple days seem to become such treasured memories in retrospect. Nothing like some good reflecting time to encourage me to be more present with my sweet babies.
For the celebration, I threw him a little safari themed pool party. I swore to my husband that this was a super low-key get together, not a “baby wedding” as he calls the typical first birthday party. And I almost fooled him… but when he saw me making mini party hats for the safari animals he caught on. Whoops. I just couldn’t resist when I saw a DIY tutorial (below) for the mini gold animal cupcake toppers. I still think they are my fave DIY ever. Some party details and tips are below … super simple decor, and minimal $ spent! Enjoy 🙂
We had such a great time with close friends and family, and I hope Carson felt doted on and adored! He sure is loved!
