DIY first birthday chalkboard sign and highchair decor

As most new parents know, babies’ favorite time to be wide awake just happens to be at the crack of dawn ;). So when you’ve got a sleepy (sometimes cranky) baby in the evenings, a “Good Morning Sunshine” Breakfast First Birthday Party is the perfect solution! Beautifully photographed by Brittany of Moncrief Photography and stylishly put together by the birthday boy’s mom, this party is a great example of how you can skip the same old bowl of granola and make breakfast a truly enjoyable experience for your guests. :)

PARTY HIGHLIGHTS to look out for:

  • Traditional breakfast food like berry & yogurt parfaits, doughnut holes & mini french toast & maple syrup cups
  • Homemade chalkboard first year sign + DIY twine and mini bunting wreath & simple twine wrapped milk bottles
  • Lots of homemade rag-tie bunting & sunny birthday banners + sunny yellow frosted cupcakes
  • Banana & blueberry topped mini pancake skewers + mini chicken & waffle skewers

PARTY DETAILS as told by Konnor’s Mom

When I started planning Konnor’s 1st birthday party, I struggled with deciding on a date/time that would be best for him (and his nap schedule) and also weighing in all of our close friends’ and family’s busy schedules. I was having dinner with our friends one night when one of them mentioned having just gone to a “Pancakes and Pajamas” birthday party that was at 10am. I automatically loved the idea. From day 1, Konnor has always been happiest in the mornings so a morning party was perfect for him. As far as the sunshine theme, every morning when I go into his room to get him, I always say “Good morning, Sunshine!” So, this theme just fit him perfectly!!

Picking my favorite aspect/element of the party is hard because I loved it all and I put so much thought, time, and effort into each detail! But if I had to pick one single element it would have to be the picture wall that consists of one picture of Konnor from each month of his first year. It was a challenge at first but it turned out so good and I’m so glad we did it!
