carter's birthday


one of my besties {above} recently threw the most precious 1st birthday party for her little man! i don't have a son {yet} but i've heard from some very reliable sources that getting a theme together for a little lads birthday can be a bit more challenging then a baby girls! but hello, not for my friend alivia! she was so super creative in planning this one of a kind new york yankees party for carter. first off isn't she the hottest mom ever? love my beautiful friend, muah!


how creative is this birthday invite? maybe i've been living under a rock for a while {very possible} but i've never seen invitations like this! it looked just like a real baseball ticket when we pulled it out of the envelope! alivia did these snazzy invites through fun invites on ebay.

take me out to this ball game! baseball cupcakes, popcorn bags {filled with yummy popcorn of course} and yankees napkins. this is how you stick to a theme! come on now!

don't you just love the jersey's?  and no i'm not referring to "snooki" or the "situation", what an interesting show {that's about the nicest thing i can say}. alivia purchased carter's pint sized jersey on e-bay and had it personalized at a local sports store. the fabulous jersey cake was made by a local bakery called cynthia's sweet tooth and all of the sporty yankee's decor was from party city.

look at that face! he's just as scrumptious as that baseball cake!

 you hit this one out of the park! {hehe}

First of all, Carter is adorable. Second of all, that is one sweet party! I never had parties this good as a kid, but I wasn't much of a party person anyway. Your friend really went all out. Awesome job!

p.s. the shower curtain is from Target. :)

Gosh, I love Liv and her party so much, even though it's the yankees and not the Mets. (which is the superior NY team) But his middle name is Bronx, isn't it? SUUUUUCH a schnookie butt!
