Reid's 1st Birthday: Cardboard Play-yard

I cannot even believe our lil guy is already ONE! This year has been the best year of my life by far. I have never felt healthier when pregnant and nursing him. It has been a year full of blessing. As many of you know I LOVE planning parties. When i saw a similar idea on pinterest, I knew I had to run with it. REID LOOVES playing with boxes. Any kind of boxes. Whenever we get a package in the mail its like christmas for Reid. He will sit and climb inside and out of it. Push it around and think its so fun. I decided to keep with the classic red, kraft and black color scheme. That of which are the colors of a typical package. :) Sean and his dad were the creative minds behind the cardboard planes, trains, rocket and helicopter. It was so fun watching them build these unreal box-mobiles :) My mom and I baked all the desserts. A big task- but oh so fun!
I hope you enjoy the pics. It was a super fun day celebrating Reid's tiny life. He couldnt have a BIGGER personality and we love him oh so much!

Ok, so I think I came across your family's blog through Shelby Crandall's blog. I have sporadically been checking in to see what's been going on because I think your family is precious, and I discovered that you somehow know my husband's aunt, Gail Bones, and cousin Emily! It was so random and wonderful, I had to find out how you guys know each other.

Oh my gosh this is the greatest party ever!! Asking for a little help here,as I'm planning my son's 1st! We are going to do a classic red bouncy ball theme because our little guys could care less about a paci or blankie but carries and snuggles a ball like it's a stuffed animal :) "ball" is also one of his first and favorite words, nothing thrills him more than a simple ball. I spy reid carrying that ball in lots of pics too! I'm first wondering where you got those red take home balls. I can't find them anywhere! And also, I love your palette. Did you just run kraft paper thru your home printer for all your great signage/labels/banner? Thanks for all the help!!
