A lumberjack party filled with flannel and fun

We recently celebrated my best friend's son's first birthday. Of course, I want to lend a hand whenever Julia throws a party, but this one was extra special, because her son is also my godson. This is Julia's third child, and each year when one of their birthdays comes around, I always throw out themes I am dying to explore (because up until this point, I didn't have a child of my own).

This time around, I suggested a festive flannel, lumberjack party. Have you seen the endless amount of inspiration out there on Pinterest? With so many ideas to explore and it being a winter month, it seemed fitting. Plus, we can all get behind red and black buffalo check, right?

Here are a few shots her cousin, the photographer behind Ashley Robertson Photography, shared with me from the big day:

Julia found plenty of free lumberjack-themed printables online to use as cupcake toppers and party signage, and we ended up scoring big at Target's after Christmas sale. We discovered a full line of buffalo check items - tablecloths, favor bags, placecards, napkins, cups, etc. - all at 50% off. Plus, we were able to repurpose holiday decor items we already owned - think trees, garland, and reindeer. Additionally, I dug through my summer entertaining stash and pulled out some lanterns.

Julia collaborated with the baker for a sweet bear, smash cake. Once her son dug in, we discovered the ears were actually cupcakes. How clever!

Julia also printed out woodland-inspired coloring pages to entertain the kids.

And we'll wrap up with more Target steals. The favor bags and mini trees were only a couple dollars each at our favorite store. Isn't Target the best?

Well thanks for stopping by. I'm plaid you came!

On a party note, my baby boy is approaching his first birthday. It's amazing how time flies. I'm in the process of planning as we're less than two months out from his big day. Stay tuned for more details!
