My friend Summer threw an amazing
1st Birthday Party for her son Gage!
His favorite cartoon is
so Summer made sure to
include all the adventures of Manny Garcia
at Gage's Big #1!
This was such a colorful and cute
party, I just had to share!
Here are all the party details...
MEET THE BIRTHDAY BOY
Look how happy he is in his custom Handy Manny #1 shirt from
Summer purchased custom Handy Manny invitations
from Acorn Design Studio.
These invitations were perfect as it let everyone in on the theme
and set the tone for his Big #1!
MR. LOPART'S CANDY STORE
For all you Handy Manny fans, this was very fitting, as you know
in most episodes when Manny and the Tools leave for repair,
they see Mr. Lopart and his pet cat Fluffy in front of their
candy store! MMM!
Who says you have to open your pocket books wide when you
need super cute cakes!?! Summer was able to get three cakes for under
$40 from Buy For Less grocery store in OKC. They were all
oh-so cute and oh-so yummy and EASY on her birthday budget!
I loved how the cake table featured Handy Manny
and Gage's two-tiered birthday cake featured The Tools! I also loved
Gage's personalized tool box that was used for the utensil holder!
THE TABLE DECOR
Summer set up a long table in her dining room covered in a blue table
cloth. She had two bouquets of Handy Manny balloons on each end
that were tied to tool kits! She purchased the plastic tool kits
from Ace Hardware and the plastic tools at The Dollar Tree!
THE DRINK STATION
Drinks were separated into brightly colored buckets and labeled
with Handy Manny clip art! SO CUTE!
Party guests were sent home with these brightly colored bags
full of summer time goodies and Handy Manny Stickers!
A YEAR IN REVIEW
Summer put together this special themed board showing off Gage
throughout his first year! Each month her husband, Art, and Gage took
a picture in the same spot. It is so amazing to see how fast these little ones grow!
Art joked to the party guests that the board really showed a man with money
at month 1 and a man with no money at month 12!
He is right, babies DO cost a lot of $$$!!
There is something special about seeing a baby eat cake for the first time!!
Two of my boys turned around just in time for me to take a
quick pic! They were watching the Handy Manny movie that was
playing on the big screen throughout the party!
All in All, I thought this was a super cute and colorful party!
Summer and Art threw an AMAZING and special first birthday for
their son, Gage!!
Happy Birthday Gage!
