This weekend I managed to get a little first birthday party prep done so I'm feeling slightly less behind on this whole planning thing.
Honestly I'm in major denial that my baby will be one in less than a month.
At first I didn't understand why people got so emotional over it. Then as I was organizing the clothes he has grown out of last night, it hit me. The newborn clothes. So freaking tiny, it blows my mind.
Anyway, about this first birthday stuff. I was initially just planning to have close friends out to dinner to celebrate since we're far from family, but then mom guilt came knocking and I knew we needed to have a little celebration for him. I mean, your first born only turns one once!
So in an effort to keep it low key, we're doing a brunch full of super easy to prep foods and I think the timing will work well with kids' naptimes.
I'm trying really hard not to go overboard with a theme or decor but since I already planned to get Rowan a teepee for his birthday, this Minted Into the Woods invitation is too perfect and I've been using it as my inspiration. I love the colors and think its perfect for a boy's winter birthday!

So far the menu includes fruit skewers, silver dollar pancake stacks, donut holes, and my favorite... fried chicken and waffle bites. Throw in some cake and that is a party I can get on board with!
So what do y'all think? Has anyone had a brunch birthday party and how did it go?!
