Several months ago I decided I wanted to do a pizza theme for Wilder’s first birthday party, keeping with the theme of his monthly pictures. Monica and Andy sent the cutest matching pizza outfits for the kids, I collaborated with Minted on invitations, started looking at decorations and started the planning process. Obviously with everything going on in the world right now we were not able to have a party, but we still celebrated Wilder big!

I ordered a few decorations to make it festive but kept it pretty simple and we set up a virtual party with our families over zoom to do Wilder’s cake smash. Very 2020. It was such a special day that we’ll always remember… and such a unique first Birthday for Wilder.

I’ve had several questions on where things are from so I’ll go ahead and link what I can as far as outfit details and party decorations.

Outfit details:

on Wilder: shirt, shorts, shoes

on Crosby: dress, bow

on me: top, jeans

on Jeff: tshirt, pants

decor details:

one balloon banner, pizza banner, happy birthday banner

red checkered table cloth (cut to DIY tassel for high chair), chefs hats

chandelier, gold chairs, wish bone chairs, high chair

We might not have been able to throw the big pizza party we planned, but we are safe at home right now and that’s a huge luxury. Unfortunately that’s not the case for everyone and that breaks my heart. In honor of Wilder’s birthday, we decided to donate what we would spend on a party to Baby 2 Baby. They’re a non-profit organization who have been working so hard to get diapers, formula, supplies and other basic needs into the hands of children in poverty that have been impacted by Covid-19.  We are all in the same boat, but not the same storm.
