Finn's birthday falls right between the wrap-up of the summer months and the rush into the next school year. I think it's a neat time for a celebration, and his first birthday proved to be the best get together with a large group of friends and family I've had in a while. We are so blessed!
I purchased Finn's invitations from Ham & Pea design and paperie. They were perfection!
We even went the extra mile to create a "panning for gold" experience just like in the real wild west (my husband has the best ideas). Steven spray painted gravel leftover from the recent backyard construction until each piece looked like a legitimate gold nugget. Then we threw them all in Finn's baby pool with a few pans and filled it with sand. Looks like it turned out to be better suited as a home for all the miniature horses!
I loved every minute of celebrating Finn's life, and I'm certain he had a blast too.
