After quite a bit of debating, we decided not to have the party at our house. I'm pretty paranoid about it being SO hot next month and between that and our house still kind of being a work in progress, we felt like having the party elsewhere would allow us to focus on it more. I didn't want to be worrying about whether or not I had clean carpet and a particular house setting It's not about the house, it's about Knox & Sloane and their first birthday :)
We are pretty certain of the venue. We are heading there this afternoon to get it finalized.
I was also concerned about having "entertainment" for the younger kids and this place had that.
I'm really not very good at DIY'ing party stuff. I'm not awful, but I think it's finding the time or actually executing the ideas that are floating in my head. Therefore, I'll probably be hitting up Etsy pretty hard over the next few days.
I'm doing burlap, pink & blue as the color scheme :) I figure they won't go for pink and blue forever so I wanted to do it for their first.
I have gotten several things, all of which I LOVE. I think they will be perfect for the party :) It will be western and rustic.
Now, where do I find baby cowboy boots?
*I'll post pics and where I got everything after the party.
