Today’s party feature is an Under the Sea party for one-year-old Kiernan! For Kiernan’s party, mom Jess decorated with all sorts of handmade Etsy finds, from favor buckets to cupcake toppers, water bottle labels to a specially-made time capsule.
Jess ordered Kiernan’s birthday banner and monthly photo banner from Make ‘n Take by Jennifer Anderson.
A printable sign invites guests to come hang out by the pool.
Kiernan’s time capsule box was made by Better Together Events.
Jess used a whale stamp from PaperSource to personalize each of the cards for the time capsule.
Homemade cookies were decorated with Kiernan’s initials and age.
The adorable crab, whale, and “#1” cupcake toppers were made by Cakes and Kids.
Decorative buoys were tied to the fenceposts to add that little extra sea-worthy touch.
Water bottles on ice are a must for a summertime party!
Jess tied the silverware with jute twine and a Lifesaver candy.
Jess found the whale favor buckets at Magnolia Jane Gifts on Etsy.
Personalized printable favor tags were added to each favor bucket.
Kiernan’s fabulous cake was made by CAKE of Lexington, MA.
The big moment – time to make the first birthday wish!
Thank you so much for sharing, Jess! Happy first birthday to Kiernan! : )
