Rhett will be 2 in December and I can’t even begin to believe it! It feels like yesterday that we were planning last year’s party. It occurred to me that I never shared all of the details of Rhett’s Southern-themed First Birthday Party! We kept food simple for adults and kids, but spiced it up with presentation. I hand-drew the invitation and incorporated his signature nursery fabric into the design and details of the party. Most importantly, Rhett LOVED his cake, had a blast with his friends and we equally had a blast in that fabulous back porch photo booth!
