Audree's Rockin' First Birthday (32 photos)
Our baby girl, Audree Ann, turned one on October 12. When thinking of what theme to go with for her party, I wanted something original and meaningful. When Audree was only a couple of months old, she started sucking her two middle fingers. So, when she does this, it looks like she is giving the "hard rock" hand sign. Her dad and I are both huge Ozzy Osbourne fans, so what better theme to go with than Hard Rock?! We decided to call it "Audree's Rockin' First Birthday". When I searched the internet for ideas, I didn't find much for a hard rock themed first birthday. So, I decided to share what we did. It turned out really cute and we had lots of fun!
To serve our guests, we had a "concession stand" set up. We rented a popcorn and hot dog machine and also served nachos with all of the fixings. We served root beer, soda and juice boxes chilled on ice in big silver tubs. We wanted to create a rock concert atmosphere. We set up a backdrop for photos and rented some hard rock gear and wigs. One of my daughters took the pictures of our guests dressed up in front of the backdrop. We will send these with the thank yous. We did have a guitar shaped pinata, although I didn't get a picture before we destroyed it.
For Audree's smash cake, we had a little bat cake made. If you know anything about Ozzy Osbourne, you'll get this, lol! (For her professional pictures, we had a regular smash cake.)
Hope you enjoy the pics and find some inspiration!
