Hayden's Hole-in-one Par-Tee

On Saturday we celebrated Hayden’s first Birthday with a golf themed party.  It was Hayden’s Hole-in-ONE Par-Tee.  


When I first thought of the theme, I had no idea how much I could really do with it.  My favorite thing to do is plan theme parties and run with them.  I get all these crazy ideas, write them down and then go for it.  Tim can attest, I’ll get an idea in the middle of the night, while I’m brushing my teeth, anywhere!  


I had these grand ideas of dressing Hayden up as a golfer, but then when I saw this onesie on Etsy, I couldn’t resist!  So, I did what any mom photographer does, I took him in our backyard with his toy golf club and just started snapping away.  I’m so glad I did, because I ended up with the cutest pictures of him!  


As for the food, I knew I wanted to do easy finger foods and found some of the cutest ideas on Pinterest.  


We had “club” sandwiches


Orange “wedges” and Fruit Par-faits


Sand trap (donut holes on brown sugar)



We played guess how many tees are in the jar


I made Hayden a picture banner of all his monthly pictures.  I love the way it turned out!

My friend that always makes our cakes outdid herself on Hayden’s smash cake.  It looked just like a golf ball!  


Everyone else got a cupcake with “grass” on top!


It’s cake time!  


He has never really had any kind of cake before, so I wasn’t sure how he would react.  At first, he wasn’t quite sure what to do, but once Landry and I stuck his hand in it and put the cake in his mouth, he was all over it!  


That’s what we call a cake coma!


We had lots of friends come.

 We had a lot of family come too.

After the party, we went back to our house and opened up Hayden’s presents.  He got so many nice things!  He got lots and lots of clothes, which is good because his closet was starting to look a little bare.  This boy has shot up in size in the last few months and most of his clothes have gotten too small for him.  So, it was really nice getting him some new clothes.  


I’m so glad this little boy’s party turned out well!  He had such a good time and was loved on by people that love him so much!  


We love you little man!
