Aimery Turns One // A Surf's Up Beach Themed First Birthday Party
Aimery turned one this past weekend, and we threw him a party at my parents home in Pennsylvania with our friends and family. The party theme was "Surf's Up". Aimery absolutely loves the ocean, so it was fitting to have a beach party for him while we are away from the ocean. I had so much fun pulling this party together, and it definitely inspired me to plan more parties like this in the future!
I can't believe that Aimery is ONE. This little boy has really shown us his personality over the last couple of months. He's sassy, sometimes shy, and loves making people laugh. When he wants you to chase him he'll run a few steps forward, turn back to make sure your still there, and then keep running away. He is so smart and extremely empathetic to the emotions of those around him. He has such a beautiful soul and I love seeing him grow and change into the young man he's going to be (way too quickly!).
Aimery has been in a continuous growth spurt over the past year and already weighs around 35 pounds and wears size 2T. His favorite foods are almond butter & jelly sandwiches, greek yogurt, chicken, noodles, and mangos. He has recently also loved eating Mexican food, so it was AMAZING to partner with Moe's Southwest Grill to cater our event. I wrote more about our experience with Moe's Catering here.
I made Aimery's smash cake and cupcakes for the guests. Even though I would love to say that I made them from scratch, Betty Crocker helped me with this one. 😉 All of our decorations for Aimery's party were given to us from Oriental Trading and you can find a source list at the bottom of this post! I absolutely loved decorating Aimery's party with Oriental Trading because they have a HUGE selection of party supplies on their site, and everything I needed was delivered to my door.
This was personally my favorite part of his party -- the cake smash! Also, Aimery is wearing his "it's my first birthday" custom baby tee from Cheerily (SO cute!). It was the perfect shirt for him to wear while running around during his birthday party -- and during the cake photos! He actually had two birthday parties before this one with Dev's family, so Aimery is now a pro at smashing cake!
I couldn't have imagined having a better first birthday party for Aimery! It was such a happy day celebrating this little one's life and having our family & friends join in on the fun. Thank you to Oriental Trading for helping us decorate Aimery's party!
